The Clinical Trial Portal was developed to provide pharmaceutical companies with a common technology platform to streamline and accelerate site selection, activation, training, patient recruitment and communication. In addition, the Clinical Trial Portal uses a federated user identity management model that provides users with one set of credentials across all sponsors to help reduce the amount of userIDs and passcodes that are typically required in this industry. The Clinical Trial Portal currently hosts 143,000 active clinical research users from 107 countries for the top 20 pharmaceutical companies in the world.

The credit really should go to them," added DePaolis.
In today's technology-driven clinical trials environment, sponsors and sites are required to use dozens of new technologies for every study they conduct, typically having to remember different user credentials for each technology. The Clinical Trial Portal helps streamline and systematize clinical trial workflow between sponsors and sites providing one userID and one URL for all of the studies they conduct while providing detailed and dashboard level reporting to help manage the entire process at the user, site, study and enterprise level.
