Direct Data Entry at the Time of the Office Visit is Realistic


Target Health is committed to the paperless clinical trial and to optimize clinical trial efficiency, with goals to:


1. maximize patient safety

2. eliminate errors that matter

3. assure that clinical trial data are fit for purpose


Based on a recent analysis of 4 out-patient studies, it is clear that the clinical sites are both able and willing to entry data in “real time.“ The value to all stakeholders, including study subjects, clinical sites and sponsoring pharmaceutical companies is “huge,“ because when data are available in real time, reactions and interaction can also occur in real time.
