Digitizing the Site Network for Traditional and Decentralized Clinical Trials

  • Tuesday, February 15, 2022

The majority of clinical trials will continue to use some elements of a site-based study while testing new approaches including hybrid and decentralized clinical trials.

Traditional (site-based), hybrid and decentralized approaches to research will all require integrated remote access to a network of study sites on a centralized platform in order to maximize success.

Register for this webinar to hear how sites have responded to the move toward hybrid studies, how ready they are for technological changes, what technologies they are implementing, how the regulatory landscape has evolved and what sponsors can do to help their sites succeed.

This webinar will also show real-world case studies from Pfizer and other leading sponsors who are connecting to their study sites remotely on site workflow platforms for remote start-up, remote monitoring, remote site management, remote source data review and remote source data verification.

Featuring research technology, site and sponsor experts, and presenting insights from more than 10,000 study sites in 44 countries collaborating on one platform, site digitization and technology modernization plans can be prepared with first-hand knowledge.
