Webinar:  Best Practices for CRO Oversight

How an Oversight Capability Maturity Model and Automation Drive Speed and Quality of Clinical Trials

Wednesday, June 28, 2017  |  1:00 pm EDT  |  1 hour



Please join Avoca and Comprehend for or an in-depth look at challenges and opportunities sponsors face in providing effective oversight and where/how they can progress their organizational and technical capabilities for oversight in order to optimize trial performance.

Interim findings from the 2017 Avoca Industry Research on Risk in Clinical Trials indicate that only 33% of Sponsors are satisfied with their Providers’ (CROs/FSPs) level of expertise and experience in applying risk-based approaches to quality management overall.

With impending changes necessary to address ICH E6 (R2), oversight is top of mind and requires sponsors to proactively answer questions such as:

  • “Is my vendor doing what I hired them to do?”
  • “Is the CRO adhering to my quality plan?”
  • “Is the CRO’s performance meeting our expectations?”
  • “What issues should we be escalating?”

For this webinar, Comprehend has partnered with Avoca to share industry best practice for oversight blended with best in class clinical intelligence applications.
