2021 SCRS Site Solutions Summit: What to Expect

The excitement is building for the 2021 SCRS Global Site Solutions Summit.  The SCRS recently announced new speakers added to the lineup.  They include former Surgeon General Jerome Adams, MD, MPH, and Alex Azar, 24th Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. So how do you maximize your time at the Summit?  Whether you’re a newbie or a returning attendee, the Devana Solutions team has put together a list of what to expect at this year’s Summit.

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.  

Devana Solutions CEO and Co-Founder, Barry Lake  will serve as one of the panelists.

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.

Sponsors and CROs are seeking increased visibility into sites’ potential patient access. This session will help you understand the data sources that sponsors and CROs are using to further validate your site and provide perspective on what kinds of data you should track and share to position your site for selection.  

Devana Solutions CEO and Co-Founder, Barry Lake will facilitate the panel.  

“Devana Solutions has always been driven by our site-based roots to take the initiative and be accountable for accessing and analyzing their own performance metrics data so I’m excited to hear from Kerry Gorman of IQVIA, a leading CRO with a strong history of leveraging site performance data and since Stamford Therapeutics Consortium manages trials across all phases, Jeff Stein’s perspective from a leading site organization will mean a powerful panel,” says Lake.  

Expand Your Business and Meet New People

While you will grow your insights at the events of the Summit, you will also expand your business and connections in the field.  Whether it’s interacting with panelists or sharing thoughts with others in the breakout sessions, you will walk away with more industry relationships.  Many of these new connections can evolve into working partnerships.  We’ve had the pleasure of meeting new people and then serving their clinical trial data and analytics needs.

There may be no better place to build these relationships than the EXPO Hall.  This is the nerve center of the Summit, and this gives you a chance to interact with many of the teams in the industry.  You can spend hours walking the floors and meeting with the teams at their booths. The Devana Solutions team loves seeing familiar faces and meeting new people at the Site Solutions Summit.

We hope to see you at booth 512!   

We are offering qualified attendees the chance at a $250 gift card.  Every person who takes an on-site demo of our Devana Solutions clinical trial analytics platform will be entered for a random drawing of one gift card.  If you’d like to schedule a session with us before the Site Solutions Summit, use the contact form below and reach out to our team.

Have Fun

We love what we do, and we know you do too.  The outcome of our work brings the world to a better place, and while we take what we do seriously, we also like to enjoy ourselves.

We have a couple of events at our booth 512 that we know you will enjoy!

Since Devana Solutions platform is about helping your organization be more on target, we’ve incorporated a fun little game at the show.

We want to see how on target you are, and we are offering a $5 Starbucks gift card to anyone who hits a bullseye at our Devana Solutions archery station.

One other fun event we have is the opportunity to meet Devana!

In Slavic mythology, our namesake, Devana, translates to the Goddess of the Hunt, and Devana Solutions is committed to bringing you unmatched analytical visibility into your clinical trials to dial in your hunt to pinpointed targeting.

Devana, the huntress herself, will be attending the Opening Reception on Friday. We invite you to stop by booth 512 for a chance to meet Devana and grab a photo with her for your social accounts. After all, what better content to send back to the corporate office than a photo of you and the huntress?

Devana is a 2021 Site Solutions Summit Premiere and Experience Sponsor, and we are excited to meet with your team at the SCRS Global Site Solutions Summit. 

We’d love to show you what Devana Solutions can do for your clinical trial business decisions.  If you’d like to schedule an on-site demo with our team (and enter for a chance to win a $250 Amazon gift card), fill out your information below, and the Devana Solutions team will reach out to you prior to the Summit.
