Webinar: Why are Metrics Important to Starting Clinical Trials?

by Craig Morgan

Save your seat for this upcoming webinar! This question may seem counter intuitive, as we are exposed almost daily to the dire performance of clinical trials and their spiraling costs resulting from incurred delays.

Webinar: Why are Metrics Important in Starting Clinical Trials?

Title: Why are Metrics Important in Starting Clinical Trials?


Metrics are indeed critical to efforts to rein in clinical trials that are either poorly initiated or have incurred unforeseen events which place the original timelines and/or budgets at risk of overages. They also drive competitive performance among those organizations performing trials. But how? The webinar will focus on these issues and the competitive edge metrics provide those organizations engaged in conducting clinical trials.

In this webinar we will explore:

  • Business Intelligence: The need to make smarter decisions on intelligences derived from clinical trial data
  • Industry trends on data mining and analytics
  • The need for industry benchmarking across trials & its inherent challenges
  • Moving beyond benchmarking to gamification, efficient resource allocation, and predicative analytics or forecasting

This webinar is applicable to:

  • Sponsor and CRO roles responsible for site selection and activation
  • Sponsor and CRO roles responsible for collecting and evaluating trial metrics
