How to Empower Data-Driven Decisions in Your Organization

Every day, pharma and medical device companies need data from Systematic Literature Reviews (SLRs) to inform, direct, and help drive their internal processes and decisions. Of course, to comply with global regulatory requirements, clinical literature is also required. Conducting SLRs to search, screen, and extract data from published sources can present challenges to your team in terms of expertise (e.g., medical librarian), methodology, and resources. It takes trained people with the availability to screen, review, and analyze the literature.
