End of Study Hacks: The New Digital Age

It’s no secret that the end of a study requires immense efforts by sponsors and CROs. One of the regulatory-required and resource-intensive end-of-study steps is sharing the end-of-study media back with the clinical research sites – a compliance process that has relied on dated and unsecure technology, such as CDs and DVDs, and manual efforts. Learn from industry experts how to eliminate compliance risks associated with the up to 65% of sites that lose, never receive, or acknowledge these CDs/DVDs, along with the site audits where findings arise due to data access. Improve site satisfaction and enhance process efficiency by simplifying and automating the exchange of study data with sites. Discover how Sponsors and CROs are challenging the status quo by developing new models to improve end of study compliance and productivity.
