Clinical research has become a fully international industry, with studies increasingly spanning international borders. This presents a number of challenges for sponsors and CROs conducting clinical trials in multiple geographies. How will researchers navigate the rapidly evolving regulatory landscapes governing clinical trials in various regions across the globe - especially in places like Europe, where impending regulatory changes around data protection and medical device research have sparked much conversation throughout the industry? At a time when infectious disease outbreaks have created an urgent need for clinical trials in regions where infrastructure is often limited, how will researchers achieve the efficiencies in data sharing and data management that these trials demand?
Our presentation will explore the implications of these questions for users of clinical trial technology. As EDC and other solutions become more and more ingrained in operations, the clinical research industry is facing a multitude of important considerations.
