Grow Your Industry Knowledge
One of the great benefits of attending the Summit is learning where the industry is headed. There are many events throughout the Summit that take a look at the technology and relationships that drive the great research work.
Here are some of the events we are looking forward to:
Friday, October 1st at 2:00 PM: Master Workshop III, Position Your Site to Lead the Charge to the Future of Decentralized, Patient-centric Clinical Trials.
Devana Solutions CEO and Co-Founder, Barry Lake, joined by a distinguished panel of industry leaders, will lead an interactive discussion on the rapid evolution, spurred by the pandemic, towards a more decentralized, patient-centric approach to designing and executing clinical trials.
“Site Solutions Summit has always attracted industry leaders and been solutions-oriented” says Lake, “Our Master Workshop on October 1st is no exception with Dr. G. Paul Evans, Irfan Khan, MD and Dr. Jeff Kingsley providing thought leadership from the site perspective with Kristin Andrews of Labcorp Drug Development, the sponsor/CRO viewpoint. Solutions to position your site to lead as trials become more decentralized will benefit all workshop attendees.”
Saturday, October 2nd at 1:30 PM: Breakout Session I, What We Really Want: Site & Patient Input for Vendors with Respect to Technology.
This interactive session focuses on technology’s role in the clinical trials industry. Similar to a focus group, this Breakout Session will collaboratively collect perspectives from the field to help impress future technology adoption and advancement.
Lake says, “Too many technology vendors neglect the site and patient perspective when introducing new advances at the site-level. Since Devana Solutions was purpose-built by site professionals to meet leadership’s need for performance data transparency, I’m hopeful that my experience will resonate from the site and patient viewpoint.”
Saturday, October 2nd at 3:00 PM: Breakout Session II, Trust-Building: Utilizing Your Data to Validate Your Site.
