How Sponsors are Accelerating Clinical Trials with Automatic EHR Integration

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials,
  • Friday, November 04, 2022

All clinical studies face a common challenge — acquiring high quality data, efficiently. Getting data from its source into a finalized state is typically a laborious, time consuming and expensive process involving numerous parties. For sponsors, CROs and sites relying on traditional strategies, this complexity slows down every aspect from enrollment to market.

Can an automatic electronic health record (EHR) integration help?

Yes! The ability to extract relevant data from EHRs directly into the clinical trial database dramatically simplifies complex tasks such as:

  • Participant enrollment
  • Chart reviews
  • Outcome tracking
  • Data cleaning and verification

Automatic data integration lowers the work burden for sites, makes participation easier for subjects and delivers key data earlier to sponsors to accelerate data-driven decisions.

Register now to learn how sponsors, CROs and sites are using automatic EHR integration to advance the science of clinical trial research.
