On February 6 at 7:45am, BioPharm Clinical™ will present an educational session on improving study feasibility and investigator selection by using patient pool demographic data at CHI’s Summit for Clinical Operations (SCOPE) in Miami, FL. BioPharm Clinical is also co-sponsoring the summit. Topics to be covered in the presentation include the growing importance of international investigators and how to more closely examine U.S. investigators as they become increasingly active in multiple studies that strain their available patients and resources.

Data analytics in BioPharm Clinical and surveys conducted by the company show…

  • The percent of started studies with U.S. sites only has decreased from 54% to 29% since 2000
  • 53% of investigators are located outside of the U.S.
  • Clinical operations professionals surveyed on investigator selection report that their primary concerns are commitment/availability (56%) and patient pool size (41%), far outweighing every other factor offered in the survey
  • 40% of all U.S. investigators who started a new study in the past three years started more than one
  • The average number of active studies per U.S. investigator has increased approximately 50% (from 1.43 to 2.13) since 2000

“These trends demonstrate how critical it is for clinical operations teams to receive the tools and support they need in order to reliably assess study feasibility and to select investigators who will meet enrollment goals,” said session presenter Sean Melville, Business Development Director of BioPharm Clinical. “At SCOPE, we will show how leading global pharmaceutical companies and clinical research organizations (CROs) are leveraging new streams of data including patient pool demographics – such as those available in our +Precision™ database - to make more informed and efficient trial planning decisions.”

In addition to the presentation and co-sponsoring the summit, BioPharm Clinical will partner with Praxis to welcome attendees to a pre-conference reception at Chophouse Miami on February 4 from 6:00-9:00pm. RSVP for the annual networking event and receive a chance to win an iPad Mini.
