People, Process and Technology: 2017 Fall Onsemble Brings All of the Pieces Together

For the past five days, the Onsemble community gathered in Madison, WI for a memorable and exciting 2017 Fall Onsemble conference. We took the city by storm, enjoying beautiful locations like the Monona Terrace and the Orpheum Theater for conference sessions, networking and good times.

On this final day of Onsemble, the atmosphere is bittersweet as we say goodbye to new and old friends, and see the close of a great week. However, it’s rewarding to think back on the activities and excitement of the past five days to realize how much we’ve all learned from each other.

A notable theme throughout this year’s conference was the idea that connecting people, process and technology is critical to optimizing clinical research operations and realizing organizational goals. During many sessions, presenters discussed ways to improve each of these three key elements for more efficient practices.

Forte’s Operational Goals workshop was a valuable, interactive means for attendees to uncover how well their organizations are connecting their people, processes and technologies to address their challenges and meet their goals. Much like this workshop, many conference sessions were discussion-based and gave attendees the chance to share their challenges with peers to collaboratively find solutions.

Once again, the Regional Site Empowerment Meet-Ups were successful in bringing together like-organizations for free-form discussion about industry topics. This session gave attendees the opportunity to freely ask their peers for advice, discuss roadblocks and propose solutions for common challenges in an open and collaborative environment.
