Consulting & Analytics - Clinical Strategy & Planning

In-depth trial feasibility assessments requires meticulous time and resources to source and collate all the data you need to create accurate analyses and develop actionable insights critical to your business success. Without this painstaking time and effort and access to the right clinical intelligence you risk rushed or inaccurate decisions, affecting your clinical trial timeline and substantially increasing your costs. 80% of all clinical trials fail to run on time. The financial implications on businesses can be huge, with 94% of trials delayed by over a month and costing businesses up to $8million in lost revenue each day.
