Study startup that consists of activities associated with the site identification, feasibility assessment, selection, activation, and monitoring is a notorious bottleneck in the clinical trials. Several factors can impact the study startup, comprising the contract and budget negotiations, regulatory changes, compliance, Institutional Review Board approvals, clinical staff turnover, and so on. All of these contribute to substantial trial delays and cost overages.
