A Site-Centric Approach to Clinical Data Collection and Management

Clinical data is the underlying foundation of clinical trials, and investigators must cater to two conflicting agendas when it comes to clinical data management. The first is to manage the requirements of clinical trials and share the results of clinical trials rapidly. The second is to ensure that all of the patient’s own results are aligned with their own long term personal medical records. A patient-centered culture by design puts the patient at the center of healthcare, and patient observation and interactions are converted to real-time data streams that enrich and accelerate clinical trials. We will explore the opportunities to bring those two worlds together successfully.

Fair Market Value and Its Impact on Your Site

Currently, there is no standard pricing models available to sites. Site compensation is established and available to industry via various fair market value programs. Understand how each time your site accepts compensation below your cost you contribute to the calculation which establishes fair market value. Once fair market value is established, there are numerous regulatory and legal complications that industry is bound to. Therefore, it is critical for your site to understand their cost. Data from recent research will highlight examples of site's costs versus fair market value, and tools will be provided to help your site establish their costs.
