“Let food be the medicine and medicine be the food”, Hippocrates.
This quote is still valid, although Hippocrates was born around the year 460 BC. Humanity never stops raising questions and is continuously searching for answers.
But what food are we talking about? What active substances? In what quantity? What medical product? What drug, devices or procedure can increase our life quality and life expectancy?
We all agree that the greatest wealth in life is health. Preventing, diagnosing and treating disease requires a lot of knowledge about why diseases appear and most important how we can treat them.
To answer those questions, doctors create research studies involving volunteers, called clinical trials. The new treatments are evaluated in order to find whether they are safe, effective and better than the ones existing on the market.
The software that allows managing documents involved in clinical trials is used by doctors and people from the pharmaceutical industry to efficiently manage data collected during a clinical study. The very foundation of a study is accurate data collection. Given the large amount of data managed in the clinical trials, researchers require a clinical trial management software to ensure that the information is kept properly in all phases of study.
Clinical trial software products help the doctors to collect all necessary documents and helps them to dedicate more time researching and less in organizing information. The collection, management and efficient data evaluation, from a clinical trial, is supported by software.
An electronic trial master file (eTMF) will help organizing and storing documents, images and other digital content for pharmaceutical clinical trials that may be required for compliance with the government regulatory agencies.
Clinical trials are sponsored by government agencies, pharmaceutical companies, individual doctors, health care centers and can take place in hospitals, universities, doctor’s offices, or community clinics.
Life Science industry is facing pressure to cut costs while facing increasingly challenging regulatory requirements. Using a dedicated clinical trial software will speed up the site start-up process, will reduce the total clinical trial execution time and, of course, will reduce the paper printing and all the costs involved in storage the paper files.
So, just let technology speed up the process of getting the answers that are out there. Finding them can be just a matter of time and automating the processes will reduce the time in which a new life saving drug can be discovered and made available for each and everyone.
Just remember that technology loves the art of medicine and….
“Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity”, Hippocrates.
