Q&A: What Is Triggered Monitoring?

Reading Time: < 1 minute

How is triggered monitoring different from traditional monitoring? Today, clinical research associates (CRAs) travel to clinical sites on fixed visit schedules — visiting each site once per month. But what if CRAs could predict when to visit a site based on how much work needs to get done? Will CRA productivity increase if visits are not regularly scheduled but rather "triggered" by the amount of source data verification (SDV) that needs to be completed at the site? In this video, ICON, InVentiv Health Clinical and Medidata explain triggered monitoring and what it means for the clinical research associate.
