Informing the Investigator:
Implementing an Automated SUSAR System

Speaker for this Event:
  • Dr. Max Horneck, CEO, maxclinical GmbH Germany
  • Investigators, health authorities, and ethics committees need to be informed in a timely manner of new and updated SUSARs and SAEs, since these safety reports are an essential requirement for sponsors of clinical trials. Using an automated and secure electronic communication method for this notification has shown to improve patient safety and regulatory compliance, while reducing manual efforts and costs.

    In this webinar, the challenge of the prompt reporting of a low or high number of SUSARs to Investigators in global and large-scale clinical trials will be addressed. Additionally, the speaker, Dr. Max Horneck, CEO, maxclinical GmbH, will outline a real-life implementation of a secure communication platform for SUSAR reporting in a mid-size pharmaceutical company.

    The following questions and answers will be addressed:

    1. What are the expectations prior to implementation?

    a. Reduction of work load
    b. Return of investment
    c. Increase of compliance
    d. Improved communication between Sponsor and Investigator

    2. What are the challenges during implementation?

    a. Change management
    b. Systems Integration

    3. What experiences and lessons are learned after go-live?

    a. Stakeholder - acceptance
    b. Performance

    Additionally, attendees may learn how to:

    1. Plan the migration from paper to an electronic system
    2. Roll-out the technology to investigators and study stake-holders
    3. Integrate the solution into an eClinical environment
    4. Set-up a compliant reporting system
