Executive Summit on Site Strategies

Next-Generation Tools and Technologies: Redefining the Future of Sites
Saturday April 16, 1:45–3:00 PM

Experts will explore cutting-edge technologies, tools and approaches that are redefining clinical trials, including mobile technologies that offer the potential to increase the quality and efficiency of clinical trials by allowing for remote participation in some or all study activities, investigator-facing technologies, like single sign-on, online profiles and document templates, that create a win/win — increased efficiency for clinical trial sponsors and decreased burden for investigators and sites so that they can focus more on patient care and assessment and rating tools that optimize site performance and improve project management by measuring the influence of workload on productivity.

-Gerrit S. Hamre, Clinical Trials Transformation Initiative (CTTI)

ACRP Annual Meeting & Expo

Standardization, Collaboration and Technology: A Global Site and Industry Perspective
Sunday, April 17, 8:30-10:30 AM

Research sites are being asked to implement a growing alphabet soup of clinical trial technologies: EDC, ePRO, eTMF, and many more. While the initial motivation behind these advances was individual company ROI, the continued high turnover of investigators has shifted the focus towards efficiencies for both sites and Industry. With the emergence of cross-company initiatives such as the Investigator Databank and TransCelerate’s Shared Investigator Platform (SIP) and Investigator Registry (IR), companies are now working together to drive even greater efficiencies for sites and Industry through collaboration and standardization, underpinned by innovative technology. The panel will examine all of these factors – standardization, collaboration and technology – from both the global site and Industry perspective, guided by results from DrugDev’s 2015 survey of 572 investigators across nine countries on global access to and use of technology by clinical trial sites.

-Munther Baara, Senior Director, Clinical Paradigm, Pfizer
-Kelly Walker, Chief Operating Officer, Research Across America
-Elisa Cascade, President DrugDev Data Solutions
