How to use your data to minimize risk and issues

There’s no doubt that the clinical trial business can be risky … but it doesn’t have to be. What’s really risky is that many studies have been inefficient and error prone as a result of issues that been handled using a variety of disparate systems, but that doesn’t have to be. Covance can help.

Covance had developed a new addition to the Xcellerate® Informatics Suite - Xcellerate Risk and Issue Management, designed for the entire study team to create, view and manage issues that emerge during the execution of a trial in real time. With a unified platform, you will have the kind of insights into your trial that can help you gain better efficiencies.

Join us for an informational webinar, and learn how Xcellerate Risk and Issue Management can help you:

• Create, view and manage issues from one central location and holistically manage issues before problems arise.
• Increase operational efficiency and compliance, reduce risk and add an unprecedented level of transparency
• Reduce cost and complexity, and maintain high quality standards.
