Self-Assessment Helps Stakeholders Reflect on Study Startup Status

Quality management and competitive edge are vital to the clinical trials sector and are fueling widespread use of purpose-built technology. Cloud-based solutions, such as clinical trial management systems (CTMS) and the electronic trial master file (eTMF), are broadly accepted, but these tools fail to address study startup (SSU), a complex set of processes that contribute heavily to lengthy timelines, often lasting seven years. With greater globalization of clinical trials and factors ranging from site selection to regulatory document submission to enrolling the first patient, assessing SSU status is critical. It pinpoints bottlenecks and areas of risk that could impact data quality and derail study budgets and timelines.
