direct access

Permission to examine, analyse, verify and reproduce any records and reports critical in evaluating a clinical trial of a drug product or intervention. Parties (e.g., domestic and foreign regulatory authorities), a sponsor's monitors and auditors with direct access must take all reasonable precautions within the constraints of the applicable regulatory requirement(s) to maintain the confidentiality of subjects' identities and the sponsor's proprietary information.

direct access

Managed care adjective Referring to a Pt's ability to be treated by a specific provider without gatekeeper approval. See Gatekeeper.

In Section 4, first performance comparison between IEEE 802.16e random access and IEEE 802.16m random access is provided in order to highlight the benefits of new IEEE 802.16m random access features and then the proposed model is validated through simulations.
Such memory macros can be classified into two types; high speed RAM (Random Access Memory) used temporarily during data processing and NVM (Non Volatile Memory) used for data retention during power-off and/or stand-by state.
Kelly and MacPhee [13] prove that for an acknowledgment based random access scheme there exists a critical arrival rate [v.sub.c], with the property that the number of packets successfully transmitted is finite with probability 0 or 1 according as v < [v.sub.c] or v > [v.sub.c].
However, in 2007, nonvolatile magnetoresistive random access memory (MRAM) technology will begin to reach mass-scale production.

More powerful computer chips, larger hard drives, and computers with vastly increased RAM (random access memory) were needed.
If all of this sounds like a lot--and it is--you may well need to increase your computer's random access memory (RAM, from 8MB to 16MB, for example) or add an external hard drive to enable your system to handle the demands of a multimedia universe.
