Rerouting Your Risk-Based Monitoring Strategy: Overcoming Implementation Roadblocks with New Technologies and Approaches

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Pharmaceutical,
  • Wednesday, September 25, 2019

Over the last decade, the drug development industry has realized the benefits of monitoring trial conduct, safety, data integrity, compliance and enrollment through improving risk-based monitoring (RBM) methods. As a result, we are seeing several recommended changes in our approach to research.

In fact, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has released guidance regarding the adoption of new RBM strategies to support safer, more efficient and higher quality clinical research. Scott Gottlieb, the former commissioner of the FDA, has been a longtime supporter of RBM and in a recent statement he explained:

“The FDA isn’t alone. The advent of precision medicine is challenging the entire medical research ecosystem to develop more efficient approaches to testing and developing diagnostics and therapeutics… including frameworks that are more carefully suited to the kinds of precision technologies that underpin new treatments.”

But, for various reasons — including the potential for change to jeopardize approvals — drug sponsors have been slow to adopt these innovative research methods, and the lag is costing the pharmaceutical industry huge amounts of both time and money.

In this free webinar, the featured speaker will discuss how adopting a comprehensive RBM strategy supported by today’s newest data integration and management technologies — including direct data capture (DDC) systems — are making new efficiencies possible across the development spectrum.
