International Clinical Trials

0

On a morning at a rare disease trial site somewhere in the US, a site director is welcoming her third new hire in six months. As the new study coordinator begins her day, she is confronted with a large stack of clinical trial protocols for the site’s 14 active trials. After a few minutes of flipping through and scribbling notes, she is interrupted to help screen a patient who has shown up outside of his visit window for a trial the investigator is not familiar with. Is this study coordinator adequately supported to ensure proper protocol is followed for every procedure or that all data were captured accurately on each trial?

Unfortunately, these scenarios, and others far more frightening, are not uncommon. Given high turnover and competing priorities, a lack of a true site engagement strategy can have unintended consequences, such as protocol deviations, unclean trial data, and costly delays. Members of the clinical trials industry believe all technology providers, no matter which challenge they are solving, have a responsibility to ease site burden, not add to it.

This article will examine a company’s best practices, learnt from working with thousands of sites using clinical technology, to help ensure sites remain engaged throughout the trial paying great attention to protocol adherence and data management issues.
