Breaking the Boundaries to Improve Clinical Trial Management Through eClinical Technology

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Pharmaceutical, Pharma Manufacturing & Supply Chain,
  • Thursday, May 10, 2018

As everyday technology continues to help simplify our lives, the need to streamline and modernize the way we use eClinical technology is vital. Point solutions, paper-based processes at sites, and disparate systems create duplication of effort and discrepancies. In this webinar, featured speakers will discuss how the latest software advances, when coupled with a drive for quality and efficiency, can bring a seamless and unified experience to sponsors, contract research organizations (CROs), and investigator sites in their trial-related work.
