The Clinical Trial and CRA of the Future
The increasing complexity of clinical trial systems and protocol designs needs novel and robust approaches to provide better patient safety, data quality and operational efficiency. This evolution highlights the value of models like risk-based monitoring (RBM) and centralized monitoring, and how these can further facilitate the digital trial to reduce study monitoring costs and improve the ability for monitoring and managing data quality and subject safety. This paper will discuss specifically the component of clinical monitoring and the transforming role of Clinical Research Associates (CRA/site monitor) as part of the future of clinical trials.
