There is no crystal ball for forecasting definitively whether an investigator or site will fulfill the promised number of participants for a clinical trial, finish on time and within budget, or provide high quality data. There are, however, some new ways of developing key performance metrics that can help organizations hone in on the right investigators for a particular study early on in the trial planning process. This interactive session features a panel of leaders in pharmaceutical industry analytics who will describe the current data environment for clinical trial operations, lay out innovative metrics and related data sources, and help the audience map out a plan for implementing performance assessments that use all the data available to them. This frank exchange of ideas and practical experiences to weigh the trade-offs among various metrics and processes will have a particular emphasis on risk-based monitoring trends.

Learning Objectives

Explain how organizations are using e-data sources to support risk-based monitoring (RBM) approaches; Compare RBM industry trends to your organization’s experience; Identify potential data sources and/or innovative metrics to predict and measure site performance; Formulate a plan for implementing performance assessments.
