Does the Quality of Your Clinical Data Keep You Up at Night?

Medical device studies are complex and unique, with evolving regulatory oversight and compliance requirements. Mid-study changes are frequent and common. The ability to perform mid-study protocol changes and amendments without study disruption and migration, and have the ability to contain costs within sponsor requirements is critical.

When it comes to clinical trials, researchers and outsourcers have the same goals – speed, efficiency and flexibility – but how can you impact these variables today, for the specific needs of medical device studies? Adaptive design and site-centricity hold the key. This session will focus on a case study of a medical device trial, and will discuss the insights and outcomes of the trial based upon real-time results shared with CRO and the sponsor client as the study was being conducted. This case study allowed all parties to be aware of study progress with the flow of information on key research points and scores for medical device key indicators, resulting in 100% compliance with the evaluator training requirements in the study and subsequently a 100% error free assessment rate.
