Revolutionizing Risk-Based Monitoring Through On-Study Analytics

  • Thursday, December 17, 2020

Since being officially condoned by the FDA in 2013, risk-based monitoring (RBM) has progressed to become a viable clinical monitoring technique, leveraging the latest technology to proactively identify challenges to trial safety, data analysis, and compliance. With clinical trial resources prioritized by risk, RBM has brought study sponsors, CROs and other stakeholders greater oversight into how trials are conducted.

Could there be a better pathway for RBM – a more strategic approach that can optimize monitoring in real time?

In this webinar, Biorasi will be discussing a more sophisticated methodology for addressing RBM throughout the clinical trial. By introducing real-time analytics, RBM can empower trial stakeholders to make better decisions related to speed, cost and quality.

As part of this discussion on innovating RBM, Biorasi will be joined by data, analytics, and technology partner IBM Watson Health, who will explore the importance of successful electronic data capture (EDC) to inform data management and analysis at all stages of the clinical trial. Biorasi encourages everyone to engage with the future of RBM by joining this webinar.
