Recorded Live: February 26, 2020


This webinar presents the results of a recent Clinical Data and Analytics survey conducted by the Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development.

In 2019, the Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development and eClinical Solutions collaborated on a study to understand:

  • How organizations are managing drug development data volume and diversity
  • The impact more diverse data sources are having on clinical performance and efficiency including the ways external data is being incorporated and leveraged into trials
  • Analytics capabilities and competencies that clinical organizations have currently and the key opportunities that exist to leverage automation and AI

This webinar discusses the results of the survey including key insights and findings for various industry segments including:

  • Increase in key cycle time metrics from the last landscape survey done in 2017 and drivers influencing this metric
  • Importance, impact and benefits that having a formally defined clinical data strategy delivers
  • Analytics maturity, competencies and opportunities that exist for increased automation across clinical data management activities
