Online workshop:
End-to-End automation in clinical research


Automation, in the context of the clinical trial landscape, can mean different things to different people. Several use cases have been defined within the sector, and yet there has been minimal adoption of these techniques, despite promises of more efficiency and better accuracy. It appears that, even though mature methodology and robust technology are being utilized in other industries, we are struggling to implement these methods efficiently in clinical research.

This workshop will help us to collectively highlight some of the problems preventing our industry from realising the benefits gained from automation, suggest how we might overcome some of those obstacles, and identify potential use cases that could be tackled in the light of these discoveries.

During our previous workshops in May 2021 and May 2022 we had a nice differentiated group of people with whom we discussed the issues that prevent us from getting to End-to-End automation. We are planning to repeat this workshop in the first quarter of 2023 and are open for on request in-company workshops as well. 

Both workshops are anonymized and compiled into maximum 45- to 60-minute video’s. Both are worthwhile to watch and give you insights in what is preventing us from establishing end-to-end automation in clinical research and how we could overcome that. It also gives a good impression of the design thinking approach Guy is using in these workshops.
