How Technology Simplifies Clinical Trial Feasibility Assessments
Ah, the dreaded site assessment and feasibility: pages upon pages of requests for information. From equipment specifications to investigator experience to patient population, the amount of data needed to execute a clinical trial feasibility is onerous. You may have most of this information on hand—across a variety of spreadsheets, emails, documents—and in your head. But there may also be gaps in the information you have access to, leaving you no option but to put down your best guess and muddle through.
However, the accuracy of the data you provide in an assessment is vital. Sponsors and CROs need the information in a feasibility to be as precise as possible, or else how can they be sure a site will be able to perform as needed in a trial? Miscalculations and incomplete information could prevent you from being awarded the trials you deserve. On the other hand, an inaccurate feasibility could lead to being awarded a trial that your site cannot perform well, resulting in damage to your business and your reputation. This inevitably slows down or even halts the investigational process, causing delays in much-needed therapies, vaccines, and devices making it to the market—and to the patients who would benefit from them.
Clinical Trial Feasibility Accuracy and Innovation
In the clinical trials industry, innovation and state-of-the-art technology are a part of the job. But until now, so many sites have been relying on outdated, error-prone manual processes to store and deliver their vital information. Devana Solutions is here to change that by bringing site feasibility assessments into the 21st century. With our clinical trial process management platform, you’ll have access to all of the data you need to flawlessly execute clinical trial feasibility assessments—within seconds.
Performance for Indications & Therapeutic Areas
Devana’s platform gives you the ability to review a site’s past and current performance, as well as their experience in particular indications or therapeutic areas. This information can be displayed for your particular site, for a specific investigator, or even for the organization as a whole. You can easily see the number of trials and average enrollment metrics for those trials, such as patient volume, screen failure rate, early term rate, and contract fulfillment percentage.
Performance with CROs & Sponsors
Common feasibility questions about your performance with specific CROs and sponsors include queries like how many studies are you currently running or have completed for a specific CRO or sponsor? What is your average study start-up time with that same CRO or sponsor? How long on average does it take your site(s) to screen the first patient once the study has been given the “green light?” Devana’s platform instantly provides this information for you. Among other metrics, you can see the number of trials performed for each CRO and sponsor, their turnaround time, and pertinent enrollment data.
Clinical Trial Feasibility Investigator Information
Our platform’s investigator profiles centrally house all of the crucial documentation for your investigators, including CVs, medical licensing, and training certificates. No more digging into emails, computer folders, or physical files of photocopies just to fill out the investigator information in a feasibility assessment. With Devana’s platform, everything you need is in one place.
All of the relevant information needed for a site feasibility assessment—from the basics such as contact info to the nitty-gritty details like therapeutic area experience, equipment on-site, staff-on site, and past FDA audit outcomes—is stored in our platform’s site profiles. You won’t need to sift through countless documents and spreadsheets just to get the necessary data—our platform provides it at the touch of a button.
Budget considerations are a common element of feasibility assessments, requiring you to provide fiscal details in a variety of areas. This financial information includes costs related to specific indications as well as particular CROs and sponsors. Devana’s platform stores and crunches the numbers for you, so it’s available anytime you need it.
Feasibility assessments are essential for winning trial awards, but there’s no reason they should still be a stressful, manual, error-prone process. With Devana’s platform, you’ll effortlessly give CROs and sponsors the data and the insights they need to understand your strengths and weaknesses, optimize your performance, and win study awards.
