The Clinical trials process is a long and expensive involving hundreds to thousands of people and potentially costing millions. Much of the cost associated with data collection and data analysis for online and paper based surveys etc. can be reduced and the processes streamlined.

Research organizations manage many complex trials, often with limited resources. Clinical trials vary greatly in size, architecture, and workflows. At the same time, organizations increasingly need to collaborate across various groups participating in research processes. These centers may contend with hundreds of trials at once in an environment where there are many other, often competing, concerns ranging from limited resources to meeting changing regulatory requirements. Clinical development remains largely a paper driven process and would dramatically benefit with the use of electronic forms and data capture systems that would include form and data distribution capture.
