The infographic below shows where multinational hypertension, stroke and congestive heart failure clinical studies (interventional) are currently taking place with breakdowns regionally and by country.

The increasing trial size and complexity makes advanced technology platforms essential to improve efficiencies in global cardiovascular development. Electronic data capture enables rapid data collection and sharing in multinational trials that must manage huge patient databases across multiple international study sites.

Two important trends in cardiovascular research: platforms that support real-time data access and automated systems to manage endpoint adjudication.
