5 Ways to Improve Data Validation in Clinical Trials

During data collection and data entry in a medical research study, errors can occur. Research coordinators handling the shifting of the data might make a mistake in transforming them from paper-based formats to digitized ones. If these errors are left standing and not identified before analysis, they can distort the outcome of the clinical trial, which will…
