Real-Time Patient Recruitment Metrics for Clinical Trial Success

By BBK Worldwide on Thu, Mar 6, 2014

That’s just not true. There is tremendous value  in the ongoing application of metrics, throughout the entire study cycle, so much so that we sometimes find it hard to imagine how anyone can conduct a successful study without metrics. 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.
