A critical question facing many sponsors and contract research organizations (CROs) is whether another system to support study startup (SSU) is really needed.
The potential of eClinical technologies can be optimized through the use of cloud-based tools for analyzing business intelligence, with actionable visual reports helping to identify study bottlenecks and improve performance.
CenterWatch editor interviews Jae Chung, goBalto's President and Founder on vendor oversight.
With thousands of investigational pharmaceuticals, biologics, and medical devices in clinical trials, there is intense pressure to speed them along so the more promising candidates will come to market sooner.
The drug development process is long, arduous, and costly, driving many sponsors to consider greater use of contract research organizations (CROs). This move reflects sponsors' sharper focus on core competencies and the shifting of management and conducting of clinical trials to CROs.
During the last several decades, the pharmaceutical industry has delivered a multitude of life-saving medicines, creating new treatment options for a variety of unmet medical needs.
Many sponsors are soliciting the services of CROs that employ process-driven clinical research methods. Designed to help achieve more predictable costs and actionable results, CROs employing these methods are speeding the R&D process, while reducing trial risks.
Industry leaders are adopting ‘best of breed’ applications in eClinical stack to speed clinical trials.
According to a recent article in TechTarget, clinical trials are horrible things. Although Biopharma is lead by scientific endeavor, and only has patient safety and therapeutic benefits in mind, the process of bringing drugs to market is long, complex, bureaucratic and, above all else, expensive.
New European clinical trial regulations aim to reduce administrative burden and costs. goBalto's "smart" workflows harmonize clinical trial expediency and compliance, creating an environment that is favorable for conducting clinical trials across the European Union.
According to a recently released report from Research and Markets by 2020 the average clinical trial outsourcing penetration will likely reach around 72%. Although there are obvious benefits to outsourcing, it creates new challenges around quality, oversight, collaboration, and governance.
Industry standard in study startup adds robust team management and submission planning features. The third major release of 2015 offers new features that further accelerate clinical study startup.
Drug Discovery News editor interviews Sujay Jadhav, goBalto's CEO on the company, products and future plans.
The 5th Annual Disruptive Innovations to Advance Clinical Trials (September 10-11) conference is the definitive event for innovators in the clinical trial space. The entire conference introduces novel and bold approaches to help attendees think differently about how we do clinical trials.
The need for more efficient clinical trials is driving greater use of cloud-based solutions, especially with the rise in globalization, a trend that is seeing participating sites venturing full force into regions such as Eastern Europe, Latin America and Asian countries. But this opportunity is not without its challenges.
There's no doubt that a clinical trial management system (CTMS) is vital to the clinical trial process. Primarily focusing on study execution, CTMS solutions are meant to manage all aspects of the trial process; they're built to be all encompassing. But over time clinical trials have become too complex for one single system to handle.
As Craig Morgan recently pointed out in this two-part series, there is a critical and undeniable need for speed in clinical trials. E-signatures are an important step towards the automation of clinical trials.
Partnership bolsters collaboration with clinical research sites.
The life sciences industry has recognized study startup as one of the worst performing areas in clinical trials—it is a bottleneck at the outset that slows drug development, leading to significant delays and costs.
The pharmaceutical industry has been on the defensive against the escalating cost of medicines, ethical issues associated with globalization of clinical trials, and access to new innovative treatments.
I have written several articles recently about companies in the pharma industry that continue to use paper for clinical trials when technology now exists to make all of it obsolete.
Advanced, cloud-based collaboration platforms allow sponsors, CROs, and sites to dramatically reduce study startup timelines, eliminate bottlenecks, and reduce costs.
The clinical trial landscape is ripe for bringing substantial improvements to the SSU process.
The status of clinical trials continues to stymie industry stakeholders anxious to rein in the cost of product development and adhere to tighter timelines.
Industry standard in clinical study startup adds robust project management and business optimization features
Rapid adoption of award winning study startup solutions drive market penetration in Life Sciences industry
The life sciences industry has recognized study startup as one of the worst performing areas in clinical trials. Many organizations struggle to control costs and resources associated with ramping up clinical trials.
In a previous blog post, Usability in action, I discussed conducting interviews and usability sessions to understand your users' needs, and how to use these tools to develop your designs. But wait, there's more—or, there are steps to take before moving on to usability.
The DIA Annual Meeting, held recently in Washington D.C. (June 14-18), is the largest multidisciplinary event of its kind bringing together a global network of life sciences professionals.
We've all heard the saying, "test early and test often." When I first began doing usability testing, I was scared to death. I cowered behind my designs, wanting to test later and test seldom. Why?
Testing the safety and efficacy of new drugs is a costly and complex process for pharmaceutical organizations. The rising cost and complexity compromises profitability and can stifle research and innovation.
Clinical Research Organizations (CRO) that specialize in clinical trials offer sponsors the expertise of moving a new drug or device from its conception to FDA marketing approval, without the sponsor having to incur costs associated with staffing these services.
