SITE OPTIMIZATION

Generate high-quality data by optimizing site selection and performance

ENSURE SITE PERFORMANCE AND DATA QUALITY IN NEW DRUG SUBMISSIONS

Three customized services are designed to address critical selection and training of clinical sites: Site Feasibility, Rater Training and Education and Training.

REDUCE SITE BURDEN FOR OPTIMIZED RESULTS
Keep clinical sites satisfied, increase productivity, shorten timelines and control study costs.

IMPROVE OUTCOMES CONSISTENCY AND RELIABILITY
Trial sites should be trained consistently to master new equipment and software, administer proper patient care and follow protocols precisely.

PRECISELY TARGET SPECIALIZED EDUCATION AND TRAINING
Evidence-based analytics and near real-time visibility into metrics allow you to target educational and training opportunities for increased performance and better data.

IMPROVE DATA QUALITY WITH RATER TRAINING: MITIGATE INTER-RATER VARIABILITY

Rater training improves the consistency of subjective data collected from patients, caregivers/observers and clinicians. It is recommended by global regulators and endorsed by ISPOR.

TRAINING ENSURES DATA CONSISTENCY

Raters who receive training before participating in a clinical trial generate more reliable and consistent assessments.
