Survey reveals large technology gap in managing clinical trial master files
Published October 15, 2013 by OSP
A recent survey of the life sciences industry found significant numbers of companies still using paper to manage clinical trial documents. Nearly 30% of those surveyed still rely entirely on a paper-based, manual system. An additional 20% use a hybrid solution, with some trial documents on paper and some in an electronic system. And 22% use a shared file system, while only 24% manage all clinical trial documentation in a purpose-built electronic system.
