  3. 3. Context and Need <ul><li>Enabling medical researchers to conduct clinical trails in a more automated way </li></ul><ul><li>Pre-trail : Setting up the test group, using a (single) query that specifies the requirements for the subjects of the study </li></ul><ul><li>During the tria l: automate the gathering of the necessary research data, in a standardised way, making it accesible to the researcher and the treating MD in a uniform way </li></ul><ul><li>Post-trial : Storing, disseminating and conserving gathered data </li></ul>
