Webinar: TFS & Technology – Our Approach to Study Start-Up

Title: TFS & Technology – Our Approach to Study Start-Up


Study startup, encompassing activities associated with site identification, feasibility assessment, selection and activation, is a notorious bottleneck in overall study conduct. Numerous factors can adversely impact study startup, such as contract and budget negotiations, regulatory changes and compliance, IRB approvals, clinical staff turnover, and others, contributing to significant trial delays and cost overages.

TFS is a technology-driven CRO and recently partnered with goBalto. Their workflow-driven platform optimize the many study startup steps, providing real-time insights into study status, making it easier to quantify team performance and discover meaningful patterns in study data.
