“George Clinical seeks to provide Sponsors of clinical trials with access to clinical trial sites which exhibit excellence in both their research activities and their clinical trial expertise. We are excited by the opportunity to work with BlueCloud to help us to help sites maintain evidence of qualification and training of their site staff in a secure web-based environment and also to gain insights into patient populations. Both are critical to selection of the best sites for every study we undertake and will save us and the sites valuable time in study set up,” stated Dr. Marisa Petersen (CEO).
