The Digital Twin in Clinical Research

Digital twins of assets and processes are established by using Internet of Things (IoT) technology to acquire massive amounts of data in real time.

Jörg Mielebacher at PCQ Pilots summarises how creating and using digital twins in clinical research could boost efficiency and data quality.
