Free Webinar | Accelerating the Clinical Development Lifecycle through Digitization

June 18, 2020 | 11:00am -12:30pm

As evidenced by the recent COVID-19 pandemic, rapid development of life saving therapies is more critical than ever. CDOs must focus on innovative approaches to accelerate the product development lifecycle. Standardization of protocol elements, introduction of an end-to-end process for clinical development standards and the utilization of TransCelerate’s Common Protocol Template (CPT), coupled with the right technology, provide a platform for planning and executing trials more efficiently and getting products to market faster.

Learning Objectives

In this webinar you will learn:
  • What to consider in successfully executing implementation of a digital data flow and how to optimize people, processes, and technology to drive end-to-end operational efficiencies.
  • How clinical platform and digital data flow reduces cycle times, improves data quality, and accelerates integration of data sources and the ability to connect data across systems.
  • How the Lean Protocol™ process reduces time-to-market for new drugs by driving automation and streamlining data flow from study design through to execution and submission while improving quality and compliance and reducing costs and timelines.
