As your study unfolds, you’re collecting millions of data points through a patient recruitment management system. Your study is probably generating more data than any member of any site staff has time to review.

But we’re not talking about numbers for numbers’ sake. It takes a great deal of expertise to know which measurements to take and how to interpret the findings.
