The Pandemic Push: Driving Disruption and Lasting Transformation in Clinical Trial Management

Tuesday, June 9 at 1:00 p.m. ET Objective: As a result of attending this webinar, attendees will be able to describe how industry leaders are redefining traditional trial management practices with lessons learned from the impact of COVID-19. Purpose: The COVID-19 pandemic served as a wake-up call to the clinical trial industry which otherwise has been historically slow to change. For years, many have discussed the need for disruption, but traditional ways prevailed despite the introduction of new technologies and regulatory guidance that nods to the acceptance of innovation and risk-adapted approaches. With an abrupt halt, most organizations had to quickly react and pivot to ensure the protection of subjects and integrity of data remotely in ongoing trials.  After months of unplanned disruption, there have been many lessons learned and an awakening with an apparent openness to change and a real potential to shorten development timelines. Could it be that our industry is ready to not just do the same things differently, but to do different things?  Going “remote” is not enough. We must now consider how sponsors and CROs can use this pandemic push to drive meaningful transformation. Now is the time to drive disruptive innovation by using technology and teams to approach clinical trial management from a different angle with the goal of achieving higher quality and improved efficiency. This webinar is a must-attend for managers and business leaders responsible for innovation and growth at sponsor and CRO organizations. Learn how MedTrials and Mednet have worked together to adapt to challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and how Sponsors and CROs can use lessons learned to drive meaningful change for clinical trial management.
Topics to be discussed, include:
  • Opportunities for proactive planning and collaboration for more effective study management
  • The need to challenge long standing assumptions and best practices
  • Optimizing use of electronic tools
  • How to realign roles and responsibilities to maximize efficiency
