“PCMG members know to expect honest and engaging discussions about practical topics and best practices they can apply to their daily jobs straightaway,” said Lan Bandara (LinkedIn), member of the PCMG committee. “Navigating the ever-changing technology landscape can be a challenge, so we are offering real-world guidance and advice to ensure attendees know the right questions to ask, and how to interpret answers, when making such important decisions on the technology they will use to run their next clinical trial.”
When the industry was forced to leap forward into decentralized and remote technology, many companies had to change processes quickly to catch up. This included some technology providers, who lacked the operational resources and experience to scale as quickly or as reliably as planned. Lessons learned from the early days of the pandemic have led to a more refined and mature evolution of clinical technology that is primed to transform the way patients, sites, and study teams connect worldwide.
“Alongside essentials such as site selection and protocol design, choosing the right – or, unfortunately, the wrong – technology partner can make a huge impact on the success of your clinical trial,” said Rob Bohacs. “Speaking from a technology provider’s perspective, I realize how hard it must be to survey the ever-changing landscape of available solutions, compare apples-to-apples, and find the right fit. You want to add value, not burden, to your patients, sites, and study teams. I’ve spent decades learning from sponsors and CROs how they evaluate vendors, what best practices they’ve developed, and which mistakes they’ve made. At this PCMG online workshop, we will come together to share what we’ve all experienced so you can avoid pitfalls and more confidently evaluate your next technology partner.”
