Initiatives that Lessen the Administrative Burden on Sites

Sponsor companies regularly develop initiatives that aim to make life easier for sites, but what are they doing that is delivering measurable benefits today? This session will bring together a panel of sponsor, site, and technology-provider representatives to share the practices that are truly making a difference. Tasks and processes that are the greatest sources of investigator frustration, burnout, and drop-out will be identified, then the panel will discuss use cases of currently available solutions, both high- and low-tech, with metrics that demonstrate a reduction in administrative burden on sites.

Maximizing Enrollment Goals with Technology and Data Insights

Meeting patient enrollment goals is a top site pain point and priority. This workshop will outline recruitment best practices for research sites, zeroing in on site operations technology that helps them become experts at patient recruitment and enrollment, and increasing chances of becoming a high-performing site in the eyes of sponsors and CROs. Attendees will examine how leveraging the power of comprehensive trial management tools, together with social media, text messaging and more, can streamline a site’s ability to meet deadlines, exceed enrollment goals, track recruitment sources and maximize patient engagement throughout the process.

The Clinical Trial Process of Tomorrow: Paperless Processing

Embracing paperless technology places your site in the forefront of the clinical research landscape of the future. However, going paperless comes with its own pain points. How can these be navigated to improve your processes and flow of data? Attend this workshop to gain a perspective of how trials processes are evolving and how site-based paperless systems benefit all parties to bring greater efficiency, increased accuracy, better oversight, faster education and reduced costs.

Sites Take the Mic! Designing a Tech-enabled Recruitment Plan

Innovators have been racing to market with solutions aiming to optimize site operations, but instead have inundated sites with technologies that do not solve the actual problems they are intended to address; sometimes they even create new problems.

This interactive workshop will lead attendees through the product development process. Attendees will share their best and worst experiences with clinical trial technology. We will then review the available recruitment product offerings and features with the goal of understanding exactly what sites want and need in order to realize the potential that technology offers. Join this workshop to learn how to think like an entrepreneur and align your site as a pioneer in clinical trial product development. Let’s design a trial recruitment product for sites, by sites!
