CTMS to Accelerate SCOPE Webcast

[On-Demand Webinar]

Optimizing Efficiency and Effectiveness with a Data-Driven Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS)

Increasingly, clinical operations teams are being asked to do more with fewer resources. This is especially true in emerging organizations facing issues of scale as they seek to develop novel therapies. While sorting through the complexities of multiple stakeholders, vendors,and technology systems, it’s critical to have real-time visibility into trial health as well as efficient workflows, to stay ahead of potential issues and to remain focused on high value activities. 

Additionally, taking a risk-based quality management approach requires an adaptive CTMS which uses innovative analytics to contour monitoring behavior to focus on critical data and subject safety. 

Clinical research teams that have clearly defined performance metrics and can access them at the study, country, and site level can be responsive to issues and proactive with how study sites are managed. During this session, we will explore how a rapidly growing biotechnology firm, Enterin Inc., is leveraging Medidata solutions, including Rave EDC and Rave CTMS, to take a data-driven approach to streamlining their clinical operations workflows and run more effective clinical trials.

What you will learn:

  • How a data-driven approach to clinical trial management enables effective and efficient oversight of trial activities 
  • Strategies for taking a risk-based quality management approach to clinical trial management
  • How the right CTMS can enable better workflows and tighter collaboration across clinical operations teams
