According to the Tufts Impact Report, 70% of investigative site staff believe conducting clinical trials have become increasingly difficult over the last five years. Staffing, study budgets, and protocol complexity are top challenges that are routinely noted. In addition, sites struggle with the implementation of new technologies and operating models, leveraging remote staff, and virtual facilities. 

To mitigate challenges, clinical sites must rethink how they operate and employ agile and resilient tools. An optimal combination of technologies with supplemental services that help accelerate manual processes is the key to transformational change in study start-up, efficient clinical trial conduct, and productive, satisfied sites.

In this webinar, Joe Dustin, VP/GM of eCOA and Annie Hesslewood, Site & Patient adoption lead at Medable will have an open discussion with a panel of sites and CRAs. The discussion will provide a candid assessment of the site perspective of how upcoming changes in the eCOA landscape can reduce burden on participants and sites to maximize the chance of success in clinical trials.

Key Learnings: 

  • Perspectives and guidance for effective eCOA implementation
  • Surprises that may occur when adopting eCOAs for use in clinical trials
  • An introspective into site resource challenges
  • Insights into how training and support can reduce operational barriers
