Clinical Trials Development Accelerator
Enabling Your CRM to Streamline the Clinical Trials Lifecycle
The clinical trials lifecycle requires time-sensitive coordination of multiple business processes and stakeholder communication. This lifecycle is often supported by a combination of disparate technology systems and manual workflow management practices, leading to systemic process inefficiencies.
Sponsors – both Federal & Non-Federal – are looking for fast start ups, ideally 90 days or less. Such a metric requires strong delivery expectations and coordinated efforts. A Clinical Trials Office (CTO), enabled by technology and data harmonization, can optimize the study activation process, creating operational efficiencies for meeting this metric.
Huron’s clinical trials development accelerator, powered by Salesforce, creates a single-entry point/platform for all clinical trials, starting at feasibility and ending with research account setup. The accelerator is a workflow management solution that offers study team members a platform to manage and report on key workflows across multiple stakeholders. Using the clinical trials development accelerator allows institutions to expedite the process of determining research protocol feasibility and priority; automate protocol intake, Institutional Review Board and regulatory submission processes; and facilitate internal and external collaboration with participating parties on Medicare coverage analysis, budgets and contracting, and other clinical trial start up activities. And due to the powerful reporting ability of Salesforce, teams can easily report, analyze and communicate statuses to all stakeholders.
How the Accelerator Streamlines the Clinical Trial Lifecycle
Easily determine, route and track various start up activities, including MCAs, budgets, regulations, contract review and IRB/ancillary review management. You decide which workstreams you will control in Salesforce via simple configuration.
Prioritization & Workload Balancing
Salesforce allows for a programmed prioritization rubric, which can easily be modified to meet evolving institutional needs. Managers can also assign work tasks across FTEs, considering individual work queues. As priorities shift, tasks can be reassigned and/or reprioritized as needed.
Powerful back-end reporting and data visualization identifies common bottlenecks for resolution, allows for real-time transparency and enables continuous process improvement.
