Fostering Excellence in Research: Welcome to the 2017 Spring Onsemble Conference

It’s 2017 Spring Onsemble week – which means the entire Onsemble community has traveled to Dana Point, California to the beautiful Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa. The view doesn’t disappoint.

But, the views are just an additional benefit to the real purpose for attending: the community. Our bi-annual conference brings together hundreds of clinical research professionals to share their successes, learn from each other and fill brains full of key takeaways to improve clinical research operations.

We welcomed our guests from all over the country at our reception on the lawn, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. With an ocean breeze floating through the tent, Onsemble attendees enjoyed a gourmet mac and cheese station, fresh fish taco bar and a delightful assortment of desserts. It’s clear the Onsemble attendees are an incredible group, brought together by one mission: bring life-saving preventions and therapies to market as fast as possible.

Onsemble Forte Conference

New this year at the 2017 Spring Onsemble is a Coverage Analysis Training Camp presented with UCLA. Conference attendees can earn 10 hours of CE credit through SOCRA and ACRP in this first-in-kind training, specifically designed to leverage OnCore functionality to maximize the utility of coverage analysis and streamline the budget development process.

In addition to key workshops and trainings, there are several sessions for customers to make the most of their investment in OnCore, including “Designing a Structured Training Program for End-Users” and “Charge Master Guidance.” One session I’m particularly excited for is the “Research Insights Deep Dive” with Nick Fisher from Washington University in St. Louis, MO to see how he is operationalizing Forte Insights at his institution.

And, of course, the inspiring keynote address from Founder, CEO, and Chief Customer Officer Shree Kalluri will give us a window into the future of clinical research operations and the innovations Forte is creating to meet today’s challenges.

If this is your first Onsemble, welcome! And if this is your 23rd Onsemble, thank you for being a part of this community. We look forward to learning from you each year.
