Investigator Payments: Handling the Entire Process from Initial Budget to Payment Reconciliation

Clinical Trials, Life Sciences,
  • Monday, September 30, 2013

Managing investigator payments is one of the most challenging aspects of running a clinical trial. First, you have to define what the appropriate remuneration for the investigators you have selected. This will depend on the country, the therapeutic area, where they work, and what the protocol demands of them. Then the real work starts – finalizing each investigator agreement and ensuring that investigators are paid quickly and accurately after the trial begins. New demands for transparency, including the Sunshine Act – mean that payment tracking has to be accurate, granular, and easily aggregated, an additional pressure.

Even if this all goes smoothly, how do you know how budgeted and expected costs compare to actual costs incurred throughout the trial? How do you use that information to pro-actively manage costs and to better plan trials in the future? We present a unique cooperation between IMS GrantPlan and Greenphire’s eClinical GPS that delivers powerful reporting and analytics on costs throughout a clinical trial, allowing you to stay informed as never before.
