Adventures in Technology: How Sophisticated Site Operators are Positioning their Networks for Success

Sites often approach the adoption of technology as a nuisance instead of as a solution. This trend is amplified among site networks as they often have to adopt technologies across the entire network, creating potential delays. Case studies will be used to present facts and guide a discussion about the recent trend toward larger, multi-location operators and business development networks. After attending this workshop you will understand the trendlines driving site consolidation and the role technology will play. You will learn to think critically about aligning technology with business strategies.

Putting the Patient at the Center: Evidence-based Approaches to Improving Patient Communication

As the patient centricity movement gains momentum, clinical trial sites are challenged to put and keep the patient’s needs at the center of their research activities. This workshop will provide you with a basic understanding of behavior science to support patient behavior, and a high level of understanding of best practices in patient communication. An evidence-based communications framework will also be introduced.

Using Site Metrics to Thrive in a Rapidly Consolidating Site Sector

Site leadership generally tends to be more focused on near term challenges such as a trial not meeting enrollment expectations, acquiring new studies or an upcoming pre-site visits (PSV) . Given these and other daily challenges of running a site, site directors and managers tend to be more reactionary to economic forces now impacting the industry, including the current consolidation trend now picking up pace in the site sector. This workshop will enlighten site leaders on which key performance indictors (KPI) and site metrics they should track and use to drive continuous process improvement at their site or site network to thrive as a leading performer instead of merely surviving as the pace of site sector consolidation quickens.

Operational Efficiencies for the Site of the Future

Many sites get bogged down with the volume of tracking, oversight, and maintenance of site operations as they grow. This workshop will break down some of the key pillars of site operations and discuss advanced strategies and topics for how to build a research site with growth in mind.
