eClinical Trial Management – Changing the Paradigm for Clinical Trials to Find Newer Treatment Options for Patients

Top 10 Clinical Trial Management Consulting/Service Companies in APAC - 2020


Clinical research and trials are an important part of pharmaceutical R&D. They not only ensure quicker ROI made for the pharma firm but also drive better and safer access to patient care.

Every clinical research and trial initiative is held on achieving two core believes—reach new market segments and introduce new drugs. Numerous pharma firms are taking steps toward incorporating the latest techniques to attain these targets. One of the ways to realize such activity is by outsourcing clinical research practice. A trend resulting from high drug costs—outsourcing of clinical research—is reshaping the drug development services industry. Today, enterprises in pharma clinical research offer services ranging from preclinical evaluations, study design, and clinical trial planning and management to independent safety data monitoring and bio-statistical analysis. Even adopting electronic records has seen a surge in the last few years. Clinical research service providers are going paperless to ensure that their operations around drug applications such as researching, analysis, and data management are manual-free, error-free, swift, easy, and automatic. These electronic records have also found support from the latest technologies that capture the clinical trial management systems for administrative information.

The integration of silos of pharma and clinical research-related information flowing through numerous networks from one medical firm to another is yet another challenge that needs to be eliminated through clinical development and commercialization. In the near future, the upcoming trend is likely to relate to integrating the data collection, data management, data repository, and safety data under one centralized platform.
