    Calculating A Site Effort Score (SES): It’s Not What You Think

    With all of the focus on patient centricity and patient-centered clinical trials, it’s easy for the focus on investigative sites to be lost. Prior to the patient-centricity movement, at least for a time, site engagement was the concept du jour in the industry with conferences, articles, and surveys exploring and expounding on the importance of enhancing site relationships. And while some still believe that “patient centricity starts and ends with the investigative site,”1 it seems that the needs of the sites only get cursory attention these days. Not to detract from the importance of patient centricity, but without engaged and efficiently operating sites, many of the patient-centric initiatives will fall short of expectations. As someone who obsesses about root cause analyses, I have naturally been thinking about the primary root causes for why we seem to have lost focus and interest in the sites and what we can do about it.

In the same way, as an industry, we cannot effectively tackle the issue of delays in the execution of Clinical Trial Agreements (CTAs) by only addressing one or two of the “villains” contributing to this industrywide problem.

    The 4 Biggest Investigator Site Payment Issues — And How To Solve Them

    Imagine that after a tedious job interview process you are finally offered what promises to be a fulfilling and rewarding position with a new company. However, after working there for a while, you notice that the employer is only really paying you every three to six months, which has made it difficult to keep up with your bills and to stay financially afloat. You also notice that when you do receive a check from the employer, you have no way of verifying for which days or hours you have been paid since no explanation is sent with the check and you were never told who at the company you could contact for these types of questions.
