Webinar: Harnessing real-world data: how clinical trials benefit from digitalization

Date: Tuesday, October 5, 2021
Time: 10 am ET | 4 pm CET

This webinar was run in collaboration with the Society for Clinical Research Sites (SCRS).

Scientific development has always been founded on the latest technology. Today, this means the explosion of digitalization of medical information. When it comes to drug development, the hurdle is access to the right patients, whether it be finding enough patients of different ethnicities, or finding enough patients with a specific confluence of phenotypic markers fitting a clinical trial protocol.

Today, the digitalization of medical records has unleashed the possibility of searching for patients across institutions, enabling trial researchers to work with patients on a global scale. Trial protocols can be tested and modified against live patient data, sites with large clusters of eligible patients can be identified, patients can be reidentified for trial recruitment at any site. In this webinar, we will outline the current trends, and offer real-world case studies.

We heard the following topics from the following experts:


  • Chair Introduction - Vladimir Misik, LongTaal
  • Dace Dimza-Jones, Joanne Henry & Louise Woodhead, NHS NIHR Clinical Research Network, Greater Manchester, describe clinical research's difficulties with digitalization/electronic reporting and possibilities arising from electronic data.
  • Luis Magalhaes, Clinerion, outlines services/solutions & site statistics from a global network & technology.
  • Agnieszka Gackowska, MD, Parexel International, explains how she is using Clinerion Patient Network Explorer and RWD, as well as possible future use cases.
  • Panel Discussion chaired by Vladimir Misik

The recording of the webinar is now available on the SCRS YouTube channel >
