The Onsemble 2013 Fall Conference — which is co-hosted by the Yale Center for Clinical Investigation and will take place September 18-20 in New Haven, Conn. — will host more than 200 professionals in clinical research from leading research institutions. Representatives will collaborate on key issues in the field. Among the many important topics to be discussed at the conference are practices for risk-based monitoring and measuring the performance of clinical trials.
Practices in Risk-based Monitoring
One of the sessions at the Onsemble conference will focus on practices for risk-based monitoring and management of investigator initiated studies. Practices to be discussed include assessing data for certain indicators, and examining the performance of participating sites. Participants in this session will also explore a standardized tool that was developed for this purpose by academic research institutions. The tool helps create a standard process to manage data for each investigator-initiated study that is conducted.
Measuring Performance of Clinical Trials
What aspects of clinical trials are important to measure and how do you measure them? Members of the clinical research community will discuss these questions in a separate session, drawing from past collaborative projects in which trial performance measurements were defined and tracked. Representatives will present on a specific trial benchmark that they have excelled in — such as study startup and accrual — and will explain their operational processes, sharing best practices for success.
More Key Topics
Many more topics will be explored during the Onsemble conference, including study financials, billing systems integration, strategies for implementation of an enterprise research system, as well as exciting technology updates to the OnCore Enterprise Research system.
