Deriving real value from investments in clinical trial management systems requires long-term vision and carefully honed selection criteria. The evaluation process can be enhanced by utilizing a technique known as the "Whole Product" approach.
The Whole Product approach looks at the entire ecosystem that is created by a system, the technology vendor, and how it is adopted within the research site. Aspects of this approach encompass: (1) the current product, (2) release management, (3) training, (4) adoption, (5) integration, (6) community, and (7) innovation.
The evaluation process should account for the unique needs of different types of research organizations. Select the white paper below that best aligns with your site.
