The sharing of clinical trial data offers researchers opportunities for validating key findings and avoiding the cost of duplicative studies, while unleashing innovations that can culminate in life-saving care. Advances in technical infrastructure mean that biomedical researchers now have more data at their fingertips than ever before, but challenges remain. In their post on Health Affairs Blog, Kim McCleary and Kristin Schneeman name the challenge of ensuring that data sharing platforms are financially and economically sustainable one of the medical research and development issues to watch in 2018.
Whether drawing on established financial models or pioneering innovative new structures, data sharing platforms must be ready to face the challenge of sustainability if they seek to maximize their full potential. Vivli is committed to providing a global platform for data sharing grounded in financial sustainability so that researchers can reap the benefits of our innovative approach for years to come.
