An alarming fact for clinical studies1: the efficiency of clinical studies is low, slowing patients’ access to innovative new therapies.

The main contributing factors identified are:

  • The low retention time of investigational sites in clinical research.
  • The increasing complexity of study protocols.

 

The main critical consequences are: 

  • The recruitment of subjects participating in a study has become a long and unpredictable process.
  • The quality of the data produced to generate study results and analysis is placed at risk.
