Clinical trial sponsors are rightfully concerned about losing control of their study and their study data when they outsource to service providers. With many studies, sponsors have contracted with a dozen vendors or more. Getting the data to track site performance and CRA efficiency within the required time frame is challenging to say the least.
The sheer number of status and trip reports from multiple providers in a variety of formats can make it difficult to determine if certain provider and sites are complying with committed service levels. Sometimes the vendors providing the status reports have little incentive to identify issues and delays with the study as they might be responsible for these delays. Many sponsors report they just don’t get the data they need to properly track their study status and oversee study budgets.
In this webinar, learn how data visualization and reporting helps sponsors regain control of their studies. We will discuss options to better track site and CRO performance and how data visualizations help sponsors easily see the status of their study and patient enrollment along with their site and CRO performance. Electronic Data Capture and site metric data provide a wealth of information to understand exactly where one stands for each study. Easy-to-understand reports and visuals provide real-time access to study tracking data, allowing sponsors to make informed decisions. Working with a data partner who does not have a direct stake in the outcome of the reports can be key to taking control of one’s clinical data.
