DCT and Digital Measures in Oncology: Meeting the Challenges of Compiling Oncology Trial Data to Cut Medical Review Time

  • Friday, November 12, 2021

Clinical trials in oncology are complex. And urgent. For those individuals fighting cancer, the opportunity to enroll in a trial is often later on in their treatment pathway, meaning such trials bring with them considerable safety concerns and the need to collect and monitor a large amount of data. These data are increasingly coming in from a number of sources, both in-clinic and through decentralized mechanisms.

Consequently, modern oncology clinical trials need a robust mechanism to collate and process these data, and to do so quickly, enabling clinical research associates (CRAs) to be alerted to potentially concerning data as fast as possible.

In this webinar, attendees will learn how Labcorp Oncology, with its 30+ years of experience as a CRO, has developed a centralized data processing mechanism that enables it to derive actionable insights from data as soon as it becomes available, to monitor quality and patient-level information and present it in aggregated form to show trends and patterns per outcome.

Join our featured speaker to learn how this mechanism, together with the combined capabilities of an experienced medical, scientific and regulatory team, is accelerating oncology product development.

Message Presenter

Who Should Attend?

This webinar will benefit professionals working in oncology drug development (including precision medicine, cell and gene therapies and immuno-oncology products) at biotech companies, with relevant job areas including:

  • CRAs
  • Clinical Research Coordinators
  • Medical Leads
  • Oncology Product Delivery

What You Will Learn

Join this webinar for a demonstration of how the development of a centralized data processing solution enables near-real-time review of oncology clinical trial data, regardless of source (e.g., in-clinic, decentralized, remote, wearables, etc.). Key topics will include how this solution:

  • Helps understand unmet needs about digital measures in oncology
  • Improves data quality and patient safety in trials
  • Expands the use of decentralized techniques where delayed data analysis reviews would otherwise prohibit their use
  • Provides data aggregation and trend review
  • Improves connection between medical reviewer, CRA and patient
  • Establishes a solid foundation for the addition of artificial intelligence (AI) computing into complex trials
