Webinar: Challenging the Status Quo - The Diffusion of Technology in Study Startup

Title: Challenging the Status Quo - The Diffusion of Technology in Study Startup

Description:

Study startup time, widely considered a leading cause of lengthy cycle times, has stagnated for twenty years. Research from the Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development indicated that clinical operations teams "satisfied" with their processes and those outperforming their competitors were adopters of technology.

Difficult decisions are the privilege of rank, as such leaders must be prepared to challenge the status quo of manual systems inherently used for study startup.

But what is the extent of this technology adoption in site collaboration? And is this adoption serving as a catalyst for other organizational changes, such as interdepartmental collaboration (i.e., breaking down silos) or outsourcing oversight? Or are organizations simply "automating" manual processes without realizing the true operational benefits that technology can bring?

ISR Reports presents the findings of a new study accessing the diffusion of eClinical technology, the effectiveness of those technologies, perceived barriers and change management, with a focus on site selection and activation in starting clinical trials.

Learning Objectives:

  • eClinical technology adoption in study startup
  • Discussion on site engagements and performance evaluations
  • Challenges, barriers and opportunities involved in study startup related to processes, existing technology, data sharing, and operational transparency
  • Aspects associated with change management and assessment of technology deployments
