Perfecting Practices

Over the past decade, the focus on technology as a driver of performance improvement in clinical trials has been intense (1- 2). This is particularly true for study start-up, a widely recognised bottleneck encompassing the activities associated with site identification, feasibility assessment, selection, and activation required before the first patient can be enrolled in a study.

Practices intended to streamline study start-up timelines include the use of technology investments to expedite the collection of clinical data and to help sponsors/CROs better monitor clinical trial performance, but, despite many attempts at improvement within organisations, gains in end-to-end cycle time have not been made (3).

A comprehensive survey conducted by the Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development determined that a mere 8% of sponsors and 14% of CROs are extremely satisfied with their study start-up processes (4). By comparison, approximately 40% are either somewhat or completely unsatisfied with those methods. Respondents reporting that they are extremely satisfied have cycle times 57.5% shorter than those claiming to be completely unsatisfied.
