How Best-in-Class Technology Approaches Make a Difference in Delivering Improved Data Management Outcomes

    Session Overview: In an ever changing landscape of clinical research, the importance of seamless unified EDC/CDMS technology cannot be overstated. It’s pretty well known that there are hurdles that can stand in the way of positive data management outcomes.
