A better way to overcome supply chain challenges

All studies face disruptions such as protocol amendments, undefined doses, unexpected recruitment rates, batch failures, and unavailable raw materials. International studies bring additional complications as the currencies, tax structures, government fees, regulations, conversion rates, and site costs vary.
