How AI Can Enhance the Clinical Data Review and Cleaning Process

Ensuring that clinical trial data is accurate and that clinical trials are safe and effective, is a time-consuming and a manually intensive process. Many life sciences companies have implemented home-grown or off-the-shelf clinical data review platforms and defined the reviewing and cleaning processes to be used with them. Many of these systems have proven to […]
