Complexities of Clinical Research
Staying within budgeted cost while adhering to strict project timelines
There is a lot going on in any clinical study. Many research projects are funded by grants, which usually means a limited technology budget and a set duration to complete the project.
Burden of compliance
In addition, most research studies must follow specific protocols and maintain compliance with standards and regulations, including those required by HIPAA.
Participant data protection
While easy access to study data and metrics should be available to study administrators, participant data must be protected and kept confidential. Because of these challenges, most research projects still operate via paper documentation or expensive custom in-house-built applications.
Paper Intensive Process
It’s been estimated that approximately 85% of complex studies are still managed on paper.
Retention of Participants
Interacting and retaining participants for the duration of the study is difficult in rural areas and large-scale studies.
Ensuring the integrity of data, protocol adherence and consistent processes are a struggle for multi-site study teams.
