What is a Clinical Trial Management System?
A clinical trial management system is used to manage trials in clinical research. These software systems are used by biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries in creating new ways to meet clinical trial goals and achieve results. They take care of many functions of the clinical trial management process, like budgeting, patient management, compliance and compatibility with other systems, such as finance. They are also an integral part of most large hospital management systems where clinical trials are taking place.
These systems require skilled professionals who are able to administer them as well as understand and implement the results clinical trial management systems provide.
