Which CTMS concept will be most functional: One where the entire eClinical suite comes from the same vendor, or one where individual components are sourced from different vendors?

Not all eClinical applications are the same. For one thing, an eTMF, an EDC, and a CTMS all fulfill different functions. Perhaps more importantly, they are all built with varying degrees of sophistication.

Drawing on over 22 years of software development expertise, the live webinar taking place on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 2:30pm EST will explore some of the key lessons that have driven customer satisfaction with their eClinical suite. Explore the risks and benefits of using one vendor vs. using multiple vendors, and find out how to ensure that you continue to be able to take advantage of the latest technology long after you’ve made your choice in order to decrease your risk and keep you competitive—all while staying clear of vendor lock-ins.

Not all eClinical applications are the same. For one thing, an eTMF, an EDC, and a CTMS all fulfill different functions. Perhaps more importantly, they are all built with varying degrees of sophistication.

The eTMF and EDC are both relatively simple applications in the IT world. Either can be introduced for a specific study or for a number of studies. If you’re unhappy with your eTMF or EDC applications, you can switch without too much fuss.

The CTMS, on the other hand, is highly sophisticated. It is the nerve center of the eClinical suite and is highly integrated with other software. It can be expensive to introduce, and its normal lifespan is more than 13 years.

Therefore, once you install a CTMS, you will be committed for well over a decade. That’s why it is so important to choose your CTMS carefully, and be armed with the best knowledge in order to do so.

The presentation will discuss:

  •     Where innovation is typically born, and how it eventually gets to the end user
  •     What drives innovation, and what stifles it
  •     A high-level overview of how an eClinical suite functions
  •     Key factors for optimal software integration
  •     How to ensure your organization is poised to be able to adopt new technology
  •     The steady diet of myths and other tall tales the software industry feeds us
  •     Negotiation tips to avoid “vendor lock-in” and how to avoid common contract traps

Join BSI’s expert speakers Jens B. Thuesen, BSI CTMS Business Development & Chairman of the Board of Directors and Pamela Penman, CTMS Business Development, as they dive into what really matters when choosing a CTMS to complete your eClinical suite, and gain the knowledge and tools to make a better decision for your organization.
