A Simple Change Delivers Faster Study Start-Up

An industry-wide drive to speed study start-up Life science industry reports indicate that the early stages of study start-up take twice as long today as they did five years ago. The primary reason may be that, as trials have grown in complexity, so too have data collection activities related to site identification, feasibility ranking, and

Real-time data.
Real-time decisions.
Real-time difference.

Delayed data delivery is a growing problem It’s 2021, and the digital revolution is well on its way. Yet, for clinical trials worldwide, real-time access to data is not the norm — and that lack can create a cascading set of issues affecting every aspect of a study. With critical decisions too often being made

COVID-19: A Wakeup Call for Clinical Trial Monitoring

Clinical trials have two key goals: to prove the safety and efficacy of new therapeutics. Their success rests on the accurate collection, monitoring, and analysis of data. While today’s data collection is increasingly electronic, monitoring itself still largely occurs onsite, with monitors verifying source data by physically comparing the electronic data capture with the data

What’s Needed: An Alternative Approach To Clinical Trial Management

Risk-Based Monitoring. Risk-Based Execution. Risk-Based Quality Management. The monitoring and management of clinical trials are called many things—yet, they are, in fact, different. FDA Director of the Office of Scientific Investigations, David Burrow, notes that “Risk-based quality management is not just risk-based monitoring.” RBQM is a more substantial undertaking, requiring quality, reliability, and interpretability. It

Sharp Thinking A New Angle on Clinical Trial Management Systems

New technologies are inevitably heralded as making life simpler: streamlining tasks, eliminating steps, managing things so you don’t have to manage them. Yet the practical application of a new technology often seems to make things more complex. Clinical trial management is a case in point. Contract Research Organizations (CROs) and sponsors are juggling increased data
