Dispelling the Myths About Clinical Standardization
This 90-minute webinar will examine the many myths that get in the way of clinical standards adoption and demonstrate how complying with required standards benefits both the FDA and sponsors.
Why Should You Attend:
Within the next 4 to 8 years, all CROs and sponsors will have to adopt clinical data standards for all studies being submitted to the FDA. While some companies have implemented standards already, many more have not. Designing and implementing the right standards the right way is a significant challenge, and to make matters worse, there are many beliefs about standards that make the task seem even more daunting than it is.
This webinar will help to dispel the myths and common misconceptions surrounding the adoption of clinical data standards and show how the broader the standards implementation across functional areas is, the greater the benefits to both FDA and sponsors.
