This past week, the largest-ever Onsemble Conference took Chicago by storm. Over 220 attendees gathered at beautiful locations, such as the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel, the Raised Bar and the House of Blues, to learn, laugh, and enjoy the Onsemble Fall 2016 experience. As this year’s conference comes to a close, it’s important to look back at the highlights of a very full and exciting week.

Community and collaboration were key themes throughout the week, embodied by the coming together of Forte customers and employees. Many sessions and discussions drew on these themes and revealed the value of a strong clinical research community.

The Regional Site Empowerment Meet-Ups consist of monthly online discussions facilitated by designated leaders from four US regions. They are a free resource for all clinical research professionals and are intended to promote industry improvements through collaboration and ­communication. Those interested are encouraged to join the group associated with their geographic region.

During the Forte keynote presentation Thursday morning, Founder, President, CEO & Chief Operating Officer, Shree Kalluri debuted the Forte Research Ecosystem. This new model reveals Forte’s larger purpose and drive, placing the customer community at the very heart of all operations and decisions. Members of Forte’s Senior Leadership Team, further elaborated on Forte’s efforts to provide a cohesive clinical research technology ecosystem for its customers. Vice President, Product Management and Operations for Nimblify Inc, Laura Hilty presented on new products and initiatives now offered by the wholly-owned subsidiary, including Benchmarks and Research Insights. These products act as tools for the research community to better visualize their operational metrics and compare performance with their peers.

Sessions such as the Regional Site Empowerment Meet-Ups encouraged discussion among attendees and provided a time to voice concerns, ask questions and come together to develop solutions for common issues. The success of these meet-ups reveals the value of collaboration in the clinical research industry. It’s encouraging to see the Regional Meet-Ups continue to grow to include OnCore customers and non-customers alike.

As always, the Onsemble Conference mixed learning and fun to create an enjoyable conference experience. Looking around at the tired smiles of my fellow attendees, it’s inspiring to think on the relationships built, experiences shared and the growing support network of this Fall 2016 Onsemble community.
