BIOTECH-DEVICE-PHARMA: Increase efficiencies in pre-screening and compliance of healthcare professional’s credentials by dynamically connecting to sites for an accelerated study start up and significant cost savings. Furthermore, eliminating redundancies at the Sponsor level.
CROs: Provide sponsor clients with global access to site employees information by real-time pre-screening site qualifications and offering Sponsors research ready sites to expedite study start up.
