A data-driven approach to accelerate clinical research


Digital technology is transforming the way CROs enroll patients for clinical trials. Many organizations already utilize proprietary software to optimize the efficiency of patient recruitment. Yet these solutions do not necessarily utilize data science approaches, thereby ignore all unstructured inputs. However, a good deal of crucial information required by life sciences organizations are locked by unstructured clinical data. Medical records, data from imaging devices, wearables and sensors, health documents, publications, and articles - all this data, when sorted, labeled, and cleared, has the enormous potential to transform clinical research.
