Over the last ten years, the clinical research industry has evolved in many aspects. For instance, the industry is shifting from simple trials to global and more patient-centric trials. As the access to new data sources like wearables and electronic patient diaries (e-diaries) increases, data volume continues to grow. Therefore, integrating and analysing the data to extract its maximum value is becoming more complex. Rohit Jain, Sukhwinder Kaur, and Rebecca Lorenzo at Axtria explore the benefits for life science companies to use CDS to stay ahead of the curve as clinical trials continue shifting digitally.
