How to Better Manage Your Clinical Trial Operations
One of the biggest challenges that clinical research organizations face is managing their vast influx of clinical trial opportunities from Sponsors, CROs and other potential sources. As anyone in this industry knows, there’s a lot of effort that goes into starting up a clinical trial; from sourcing the trial, to feasibility and site selection, to contract and budget negotiations, to regulatory and the many steps in between. Even today, in this advanced digital age, most research organizations are still relying upon mundane spreadsheets and manual processes to manage their trial activities. Why are we still doing this when there is technology available to make our lives easier? Devana Solutions’ innovative platforms help to increase efficiency around clinical trial processes for research organizations of all sizes, with varying needs.
Managing New Clinical Trial Opportunities
Devana Solutions helps you track the pipeline of new clinical trial opportunities.
Let’s say you’re a research organization with ten site locations that was just approached with a new clinical trial opportunity. In Devana, you can create the trial opportunity, once, completing details such as the name, trial origin, therapeutic area, protocol number, etc.; details that will not change regardless of which sites are conducting the trial.
Once you’ve created the trial within Devana, you can then add all ten sites to the trial, which creates a site activity and enrollment record for each site. Whether startup activities are handled centrally or at the site level, you will be able to track the completion of necessary milestones within Devana. If certain milestones are handled centrally, you only have to update the milestone once from the main trial page instead of having to update each individual site record, 10 different times.
Devana also offers built in, automated task management so important tasks never get missed, since we know there are many moving parts in managing a trial, in all stages.
Simplify Feasibility Questionnaires
One of the more frustrating situations during the feasibility process is not having complete data to quickly and easily respond to feasibility questionnaires.
When you have this information in a comprehensive system like Devana Solutions, it makes responding to a feasibility much easier since everything is at your fingertips.
One area where this is immensely beneficial is having concrete data surrounding your investigators’ historical and current trial performance. When completing feasibilities, do you know, without hesitation, how many trials they’ve participated in? Can you easily tell how many they are actively conducting? Or perhaps the feasibility is asking for data related to the indication. Do you know how many trials you’ve completed in a particular indication? What about your average enrollment percentage in that indication? Or screen failure and patient retention percentages? Devana Solutions allows you to instantly access data whether it’s sorted by the trial, indication, investigator, site or the entire organization.
Sort Your Decentralized Site Data in Seconds
In the age of decentralized trials, it can be difficult to sort through each sites’ capabilities to determine which sites are compatible when presented with a new trial opportunity. Sure, you may have a spreadsheet detailing each sites’ therapeutic capabilities and equipment on site, but how time consuming is it to sort through this information manually? Or what if a site makes a sudden change to their capabilities? How can you be confident that the information you have on hand is accurate? Certainly, you can call or email the site each time you receive a new feasibility, but who has time for that?
These manual processes may not be too cumbersome if you have two or three sites, but what happens when you have two to three dozen or more? Devana Solutions tracks all of the key information for each site so that you are able to quickly query the data for all site locations to determine which sites or investigators are capable of conducting a particular trial. But how can Devana help ensure that you always have the most accurate data on your sites? Through Devana’s site-facing interface, LYNK, which allows site-level users to update their capabilities in real-time, so that your teams can be rest assured that the information they rely upon for precise site-selection is accurate.
Is your site maximizing its potential to conduct trials more efficiently and reliably? Are you easily able to access critical data to make better business decisions? If not, you’re not alone.
