Inappropriate concomitant medication prescribing remains one of the major causes of protocol violations within clinical trials. However, CliniSafe® provides investigator site users with an advanced online interface that enables them to rapidly check clinical trial patients' concomitant medications against study protocol criteria in a standardised process.
