POC Diagnostics: 4 Considerations For Bridging The Gap From Development To Commercialization

A focus on evaluating protocol-specific training already conducted at a research site could hold a key to better focusing site initiation visits (SIVs) on critical factors and reducing the amount of time spend on these meetings.

The SIV is used to confirm that a site has hit several milestones needed to be ready to start enrolling patients. These milestones include:

  • All staff have been property trained and qualified;
  • Any necessary equipment—from e-diaries and electronic data capture (EDC) systems to special equipment like ECGs—is in place and working properly;
  • Staff that must use the equipment has appropriate access and is able to use it correctly; and
  • The study drug is on-site, properly documented and stored, and in sufficient numbers for the expected number of patients.
