Address Clinical Trial Failures to Improve Patient Outcomes
Clinical trials are essential, but unfortunately only 14% of all drugs in clinical trials are successful. SAP is working closely with its partners and customers to utilize technology to help the many stopgaps that could terminate a clinical trial. One partner specifically, SyMetric focuses on a clinical trial execution phase is when many stakeholders in the process are needed to collaborate and make real-time decisions. The stakeholders are investigators, the clinical research organizations, the warehouses, the labeling agents, and the statisticians, where a break in this chain can lead to a failed clinical trial. Of the 14% of trials that fail, 10% are due to data quality issues.
Based in India, SyMetric is a software products company focused in developing world-class products that are modularized, flexible, affordable at the same time.
