Implementing Digitalized Temperature Monitoring for Clinical Trials at EMD Serono

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Drug Discovery & Development,
  • Thursday, September 30, 2021

Digitalized temperature monitoring in your clinical supply has various advantages, such as a central view of the status of each single investigational medicinal product (IMP), easy data collection and early response to deviations. This leads to higher quality, cost savings and higher patient safety.

Once implemented, the above benefits are quite apparent, but getting there can be complex with many stakeholders involved. In this webinar, the speakers will discuss an actual case study on the implementation of digitalized temperature monitoring.

Register for this webinar to learn about the following: the business drivers for implementation, how the various systems work together and how the processes are aligned over the various stakeholders.
