Below is a list of critical questions you should ask to help guide the selection process for your organization’s conflict of interest (COI) software. We created this list after many of our current clients came to us frustrated with a ‘homegrown’ COI solution but didn’t know where to start regarding questions to ask potential providers. Although each of our clients is unique, the goal is always the same; a more robust, more straightforward process for managing their COI process.
