2019 Spring Onsemble Conference

Forte today announced the agenda for the 2019 Spring Onsemble Conference, taking place March 26-29, 2019 at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa in Dana Point, CA. Key focus areas include leadership, study activation, financial management, regulatory, adoption and training and more.

Over 200 Forte customers from across the country are expected to attend, sharing a passion for learning and collaborating to address their biggest challenges in clinical research. Educational sessions and interactive workshops will feature experts from across the industry, including senior leadership from notable institutions such as Duke University, The University of Michigan, Yale University and more.

The conference will offer sessions based on industry trends and customer feedback including:

  • Addressing leadership challenges, including best practices for managing a CTO
  • Reducing timelines for study activation and easing the administrative burden on research staff
  • Optimizing the financial management throughout the lifecycle of a trial
  • Streamlining regulatory management and ensuring compliance
  • Managing the technical challenges associated with enterprise software
  • Driving adoption and training of technology to ensure success

Forte will update attendees on the progress of DIRECT, an initiative focused on addressing the challenges of conducting multi-site trials by developing a connected clinical trial ecosystem. The initiative was announced during the 2018 Spring Onsemble Conference, and a consortium of Forte customers have been working diligently with the Forte team to make the DIRECT vision a reality.

“Spring Onsemble will build on the momentum we’ve established throughout previous conferences and collaborations, focusing on transforming clinical research through a site-centric approach,” said Shree Kalluri, Forte Founder and CEO. “The Forte customer community, and especially the Onsemble Conference, show that we can truly affect change when we work together.”

Forte customers eagerly shared this spirit of community and collaboration at the previous conference. “The Onsemble conference proved again to be instrumental in connecting me with the right people from Forte and various sites in order to discuss challenges and solutions that are relevant to me right now,” said Josh Fehrmann, CTMS Director at the University of Minnesota.

In addition to the valuable educational and networking opportunities, the venue provides attendees with opportunities to enjoy the sunny, relaxed atmosphere of Dana Point. Morning yoga sessions and outdoor events will highlight the picturesque views from bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and the Laguna Cliffs Marriott provides a world-class experience for attendees both during the conference and while enjoying downtime.
