Outsourced Pharma App Notes & Case Studies

  1. Using Analytics To Improve Clinical Trial Compliance And Retention

    The success of every clinical trial hinges on recruiting and enrolling a statistically significant set of patients who meet specific enrollment criteria. The goal is to keep these people engaged through the end of the study to produce the quality data necessary to gain approval to market the drug or medical device being studied. However, patient recruitment and retention is widely recognized as the single biggest bottleneck of the clinical trials process. 

  2. Is Automation The Disruption Pharma R&D Needs?

    Through the implementation of automation, data management, and analytical technologies, pharma has the opportunity to breathe new life into a number of areas of the biologics drug development process.
