Decoding eClinical Software: CTMS Evaluation for the Non-IT Professional

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Pharmaceutical, Medical Device, Medical Device Clinical Trials,
  • Monday, September 24, 2018

When investigating any new product, we will often look first at functionality. “What does it do?” is often one of the first things we ask potential vendors.

But with so many clinical trial management software (CTMS) solutions on the market, and with each making similar claims, judging a solution based on functions alone may not help you to find the best fit. Seamless integration, flexibility, and streamlined clinical operations are but just three claims that almost every CTMS provider makes. They all seem to offer the same thing. And unfortunately, some claims can be misleading.

This is the reason why starting your search by using a scorecard with a point-by-point feature comparison may not be your best strategy.

But if you’re not an IT expert, where do you start? Not asking the right questions during the evaluation process can lead to unpleasant surprises after the contract is signed.

In BSI’s most requested webinar, you’ll get all you need to know about avoiding common evaluation pitfalls. Gain insight into the most important questions you should be asking, including the pros and cons of buying all eClinical software from the same vendor. You’ll also learn about a concise 4-step process that will get you on your way to a solution that fits your organization perfectly.

Say goodbye to traditional scorecards and disappointment after it’s already too late to switch. Say hello to instant transparency and confidence in your CTMS evaluation process, and finally find the CTMS that is right for you.
