COVID-19 and Clinical Trials: Support Risk Mitigation and Recovery Plans With Data and Analytics

New studies are being delayed, and patients already enrolled in trials are facing challenges making their scheduled visits. Sponsors and CROs are trying to assess the impact on their studies, mitigate risk, and develop recovery plans. This webinar will address key considerations for managing clinical trials during these turbulent times and will highlight how industry-wide trial metrics and analytics can support:

  • Situation tracking by geography and therapeutic area
  • Impact assessments and scenario analyses at trial and portfolio level
  • Identification of leading indicators of recovery
