• Tackling the Problem of Prescription Drug Diversion

    May 14 | Clinical Research News | Although 9 in 10 patient care professionals handle prescription drugs responsibly, the 1 in 10 who steal and abuse them are putting themselves at mortal risk and forcing patients to endure untreated pain. Effective drug diversion prevention should be based on power artificial intelligence. Done right, drug diversion prevention powered by AI can save lives, improve patient care, reduce health care costs, and minimize wasted effort. More
  • Pragmatic Clinical Trials Need Their Own Set Of Rules

    May 12 | Clinical Research News | Pragmatic clinical trials (PCTs) require a more nuanced playbook than traditional explanatory studies when it comes to informed consent and respect for individuals. New models for engagement, transparency, and accountability will also be needed to accommodate the scale and heterogeneity of PCTs. More
  • New ‘Research Data Mart’ To Help Academic Sites Track Trial Performance

    May 10 | Clinical Research News | A university’s ability to conduct clinical trials with speed and efficiency has become a key consideration of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) when doling out grants, so the Medical University of South Carolina has created a digital platform called Research Integrated Network of Systems (RINS) to generate the kind of performance benchmarks that can help keep institutions in the running.
