Anthony Presentation DIA Florida Ctd Nov2007


Published on

Creating a business process that is accurate, predictable, and capable of
meeting the changing needs for disclosing information about clinical trials
in multiple study registries and results databases is difficult. Companies
need to leverage their current clinical trial process, determine if the disclosure
steps will be centralized or decentralized, determine how much to
leverage technology, and decide whether, and how, to use outside
resources. During this session, we will hear how a large pharma, a small
biopharmaceutical company, and a device company developed their clinical
trial disclosure business process.
