            • Current systems and clinical data standards are designed to capture the outcome of clinical trial design activities, but not the rationale, scenarios considered, and decision making history. There’s opportunity to structure and retain decisions, rationales, supporting information in order to ensure project memory is retained. A cross industry information model can further facilitate communication and collaboration between sponsors as well as with agencies
