Establishing a foundation of trust

In response to tighter margins, globalization and increasing regulatory complexity, sponsors have been embracing an outsourcing model using contract research organizations (CROs) to conduct scientific services for all phases of clinical research.

As pharma increasing relies on CRO outsourcing in clinical research, relationships are becoming more strategic. The benefits of this approach will not come from simply increasing relationships with CROs, but in how sponsors leverage those relationships to introduce innovation into their workflows. Cue the rise of cloud-based technology solutions. Clinical Trials, the costliest stage in drug development, have much to benefit from leveraging the cloud to collaborate with partners and share views of key data trends and process metrics.

With so much at stake where do you start when considering the right long-term strategic CRO partner? With technology and the market both priming CROs to step in as industry innovators, what attributes should sponsors look for in 'best-in-class' strategic partners?

In this webinar, we will explore:

  • How successful collaborations between sponsors and CROs require skills in communication and relationship management
  • How one critical element of successful partnership is transparency, from both a data and business process perspective
  • How with the advent of cloud-based software, collaboration and analytics have the potential to revolutionize the traditional clinical trial workflow, encouraging proactive planning and breaking down organizational siloes

This webinar is applicable to:

  • Sponsor and CRO roles responsible for site identification, feasibility assessment, selection and activation
  • Sponsor and CRO roles responsible for collecting and evaluating trial metrics
