SCOPE 2022 Recap: Takeaways from Clinical Ops Executives

The 2022 Summit for Clinical Operations Executives (SCOPE) has come to a close. Clinical operations executives from all parts of North America gathered in Orlando, Florida, to share the latest innovations in clinical trial recruitment, management, and analysis. Devana Solutions CEO and Co-Founder Barry Lake and Vice President of Operations Linda Parks attended the event to keep up with the latest trends and share how Devana Solutions’ cutting-edge platforms help pharmaceutical sponsors and clinical research organizations keep up with the rapid pace of technology adoption.

Our CTMS partners exhibiting were kind enough to refer Devana Solutions as a complementary platform to those stopping by their booths with a need for business development or startup solutions. Special shout-out to Elise Tawfiq of RealTime CTMS, as well as Mia Castagnero and Eric Elander of Clinical Research IO (CRIO) and the entire CRIO team for their hospitality.

We started the week by making history teeing off at SCOPE’s Inaugural Masters of Clinical Research Golf Tournament.

 

 

In between speakers and breakout sessions, the week was filled with talks from industry thought leaders and networking opportunities with colleagues. Since the first day, we were fortunate to spend time discussing the challenges of and solutions to patient recruitment in multisite studies with Trialbee CEO Matt Walz.

We congratulated Rick Riegel, for becoming the most recent member to join the Board of Directors at RealTime CTMS. We know that he will be a great asset to our friends at RealTime CTMS.

Although the clinical research industry is driven by technology, it’s the face-to-face interactions at conferences like these that put our work into perspective: “people caring for people.”

We met with Jill Johnson, President of WCG’s Clinical Services Organization, to celebrate her study planning and site optimization efforts! Using Devana Solutions PROPEL Enterprise Platform’s ability to provide reliable real-time and historic metrics, WCG can ascertain predictable study performance data by directly connecting their research sites and effortlessly manage study feasibility, track study workflow and milestone completion, and oversee site facilities and equipment.

Lastly, we always enjoy spending time discussing how our companies are innovating and leading the clinical trial space with Florence Healthcare CEO Ryan Jones.

“Year after year, we’re seeing the use of technology in drug development continuing at a breakneck pace. The way we conduct research has changed drastically because of it, and there’s no doubt that this trend will continue,” said Lake.

 

 

Vice President of Operations Linda Parks agrees. Thanks to innovations in data technologies, the world of clinical data management and analytics has seen some impressive advancements in recent years. If you’re looking to stay ahead of the curve with the digitization of healthcare data and its cloud storage, then you need to be able to seamlessly share and analyze performance levels across your entire research network.

“More than sites needing a platform that can keep up with the latest trends, they need a platform that can display actionable data in real-time,” said Parks.

It’s clear that Devana Solutions is the category leader when it comes to innovation in the field of pipeline administration, study startup workflow automation, metric analysis, and data visualization. Thanks to Devana Solutions, clinical trials are becoming more efficient every day.

Recap: 2021 SCRS Site Solutions Summit and Looking Ahead to 2022

The clinical trial industry is still abuzz after the amazing 2021 SCRS Site Solutions Summit in Hollywood, Florida. From the informative workshops and collaborative exhibit hall discussions to the receptions, everyone walked away with an enlightened perspective to push the clinical trial space forward. The team at Devana Solutions has assembled some of its thoughts and highlights from one of the industry’s biggest events of the year.

Devana Solutions CEO and Co-founder, Barry Lake, participated in several workshops and panels. He kicked off a Friday afternoon session with a discussion on the future of decentralized, patient-centric clinical trials with Irfan Khan, CEO of Circuit Clinical,

Paul Evans, CEO of Velocity Clinical Research, Jeff Kingsley, CEO of IACT Health & COO of hyperCORE, and Kristen Andrews, Senior Director, Labcorp Drug Development.

“This workshop brought together some of the sharpest minds and most accomplished professionals in the clinical trial industry to form a powerful ‘think tank’ to kick off our first day, and we had perspectives from both the site and Sponsor/CRO sides,” said Lake.

From left to right: Irfan Khan, MD, Kristin Andrews, Dr. Jeff Kingsley, Dr. G. Paul Evans

SCRS’ Site Solutions Summit is all about advancing the clinical trial industry forward, including advancements in purpose-built technology, such as Devana Solutions.

One technology-related panel discussion, of which Lake participated, also included RealTime CTMS’ CEO, Rick Greenfield. RealTime CTMS and Devana Solutions have a current API-integration, providing a multitude of benefits to their mutual clients. Lake and Greenfield both emphasized that “interoperability” of tech systems is fundamental to site success and ultimately, sponsor and CRO success.

“Technology, like what Devana Solutions offers, must meet the needs of all parties involved, from sites and CROs to sponsors,” Lake said. As this industry evolves, “there may never be a common platform utilized by the entire industry.”

While the workshops and panels offered incredible insight into where the clinical trial industry is headed, it was the open dialogue between all industry stakeholders that really laid the foundation for success.   

Devana Solutions’ Vice President of Operations, Linda Parks, met with several of our partners and acknowledged that the dialogue helps lead a mutual learning process. “Each conversation reveals more, and what we take away from SCRS’ Site Solutions Summit is invaluable. We enjoyed hearing from colleagues about the specific technology pain points that are preventing them from making data-backed end-to-end decisions to their clinical trial operations,” said Parks.

Director of Strategic Partnerships, Emily Wike, optimistically saw conference attendees step back and view their processes from a higher altitude. “The interest in Devana grows more with each conference. For those that just learned about Devana, their eyes were opened to a whole new way to manage their clinical trials,” said Wike.

While our out-of-the-box solutions are certainly beneficial, it’s Devana Solutions’ unique ability to customize its technology to each research organization’s specific needs and processes that is pivotal. “No research organization wants to be constrained during the study startup process, and they certainly shouldn’t be constrained by a technology forcing major process change,” said Shenefield.  “One-by-one, people who stopped by our booth were amazed at the level of customization that we provide as a partner, to unlock those key insights that shape better clinical trial business decisions,” said Shenefield.

At this year’s SCRS Site Solutions Summit, while our main focus was to bring about a positive shift in the clinical trial space, being face to face and sharing an occasional fist bump or handshake, was an overdue and welcomed experience.

If you stopped by our booth, you may have enjoyed a few of the fun activities we hosted, like meeting Devana, the Huntress, live and in the flesh.  

From left to right: Linda Parks, Lorraine Da Mata, Devana, Emily Wike, Roxanne Shenefield

Devana had quite a few friends stop to take photos with her, including Aspen Insights, LLC and Optimed Research

Others stopped by our booth for a chance to win a Starbucks gift card through an archery contest; hit the bullseye and win! Devana Solutions helps research organizations stay on target, after all, and we witnessed some pretty decent marksmen.

Longtime friend of Devana Solutions and client-partner, Craig Koch of Velocity Clinical, took dead aim and nailed the bullseye.

Those who were new to the innovative Devana Solutions technology scheduled a demo at the booth. Wike summed up the reaction from demo participants, “I was told by many, after viewing a demo, that we caused them to rethink their current processes. The most common customer need discussed was around growing research organizations; they are simply too busy and growing too quickly to be able to manage their clinical trials in spreadsheets or other systems that are not clinical trials industry-specific. They were relieved to know that Devana existed as a solution.” 

Once the demos and exhibit hall fun came to an end, attendees migrated to the awards ceremony and dinner on Saturday night.

Devana Solutions would like to congratulate both Pfizer and PPD as the SCRS Eagle Award recipients as Sponsor and CRO of Choice, respectively, as well as the Christine K. Pierre Site Impact Award recipient, Michele Cameron, Director of Clinical Research, Clearwater Cardiovascular Consultants. We would also like to recognize industry veteran and HCA Healthcare’s VP of Research and Compliance, David Vulcano, and the contributions he has made to the clinical trial industry thus far and are excited to see the mark he makes as the new Honorary President of the Society for Clinical Research Sites.

Will we see you at the 2022 SCRS Site Solutions Summit? With plans already underway, next year’s Summit is to take place October 7th through 9th, with Site Symposiums starting on October 6th. We are already making our plans and we can’t wait to see you, once again!

“There is so much to benefit from attending the SCRS Site Solutions Summit, spending quality time and exchanging insights with our industry partners. Our team is already discussing how to make the 2022 Summit even better than the last,” said Lake.

But don’t wait until 2022 to talk to us!  and discuss your clinical trial data management pain points now. Let’s find a solution today!  Please reach out to us using the contact form below.

2021 SCRS Site Solutions Summit: Clinical Trial Data Management Demo

The SCRS Global Site Solutions Summit is quickly approaching, and the clinical research industry is eager to reunite, face to face, in Hollywood, Florida. While a great time will be had by all, we are most excited about making improvements in the clinical trial space. From sensational speakers to informative sessions and workshops, to the exhibitor booths, there is something for everyone at the Site Solutions Summit; and while there are many valuable events at the Summit, spending just 15 minutes at the Devana Solutions’ booth for a live demo of our innovative platform could result in a significant and positive impact on your research organization.

Here’s what you can gain from a 15-minute demo of the Devana Solutions’ platform.

Gain a Complete View of the Clinical Trial Data Stream

From initial trial lead through close-out, the amount of data to be analyzed can become overwhelming. Many research organizations only focus on analytics centered around active clinical trials and patient visits, but by doing so, they are missing out on critical data that can be used to their advantage.

Navigating through the Devana Solutions’ platform, you’ll find workflow automation and data around business development, feasibility and site selection, contract and budget negotiations, startup activities and timelines, indication performance history, site and investigator capabilities, and much more. Devana Solutions helps to unlock key data and provides complete visibility into all aspects of the clinical trial process, giving your research organization a competitive edge.

Utilize Clinical Trial Data to Make Better Business Decisions

Many technologies claim to track key data around the clinical trial process, but is this data relevant to your organization or only to the trial, itself? While we can agree that there is key data that all research organizations should be tracking at the trial level, what about an organization’s internal metrics around their unique processes? Devana Solutions works with each client to customize their platform to provide metrics that are specific to their organization, not just the trial. This is a different approach than other clinical trial technology solution providers take. By tailoring our robust platform to each client, based on their current processes and future goals, Devana’s clients are able to make more informed business decisions. When you participate in a Devana demo, we invite you to ask questions around your own needs and future goals so we can show you how Devana’s technology can bring your vision to life.

Experience New Efficiencies in the Clinical Trial Process

By tailoring Devana’s platform specifically to each research organization, our clients benefit from an unsurpassed level of workflow automation to increase their efficiency throughout multiple processes, whether they be relative to the trial itself or other organizational-specific processes. By streamlining these processes, Devana clients are able to save a significant amount of time and reduce or completely eliminate duplicate data-entry. During a Devana demo, you may start to question your current processes and that’s okay; that’s what we expect you to do. Challenge the status quo and ask yourself how Devana can help you streamline your processes and make the day-to-day a little less cumbersome.

While Devana Solutions is valuable as a standalone product to manage clinical trial startup activities and internal processes, it is complementary with other technology solutions that you may already be utilizing. Currently, Devana Solutions has a full integration with three of the major CTMS providers; RealTime CTMS, Clinical Research I.O. (CRIO), and Clinical Conductor.

Connecting these technologies allows research organizations to save time on study-build within the CTMS by reducing duplicate data entry for study teams. These integrations also provide real-time screening and enrollment metrics to be captured for robust analysis and reporting within Devana, offering a true end to end clinical trial operating system.

Aside from CTMS integrations, Devana also integrates with MailChimp, Tableau and Outlook and with an open API-structure, has the ability to do custom integrations for their clients. We welcome you to ask about integration possibilities during your Devana demo.

Here’s what some of the industry’s biggest names say about their success with Devana Solutions.

    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.
