Its roots go back to when apothecaries and pharmacies offered traditional – but often hit-and-miss – treatments based on old wives’ tales and word of mouth. Today, it is built on a variety of scientific expertise and innovative technologies that are changing the way in which medicines are manufactured. However, despite these advances, many companies are still reliant on processes that are supported by paper documentation and printed forms.

Information scientists have discussed and envisioned the concept of a paperless society – a world in which paper communications and documents are replaced by electronic storage – since the late 1970s, but it is only in recent years that this has become a standard business objective. In the past decade, organisations from almost every industry have committed to becoming ‘greener’, often starting by reducing or eliminating paper-based processes in favour of a digital approach.

Running Smarter Trials With Data-Driven Monitoring

PAREXEL

Clinical monitoring remains one of the most important and most costly activities in the clinical research paradigm.  Monitoring provides the operational transparency required by investigators, sponsors, and regulators to make informed decisions about site performance, patient safety, and overall study progress. Yet unlike many clinical trial activities, which have been steadily transformed by technology, the monitoring function itself has changed little.
