Observations from TMF Summit 2019: The Post-eTMF World

What if I get audited?


A common question many teams ask as they face the transition to digital study documents is, “What if I get audited?” Inspections evoke fear because negative audit findings significantly impact everyone.

Defining eSource for Clinical Trials: Three Practical Categories


When discussing eSource there is as much detail to explore as any other segment of clinical trial operations.
