2023 - VOL. 2
From the SCRS Team
After three years in the making, SCRS finally had the opportunity to host the inaugural SCRS West: Clinical Tech & Innovation Summit in sunny Scottsdale, Arizona. Nearly 300 industry stakeholders joined us to discuss what the evolution of clinical research technology looks like, solutions for technology congestion, and how we can all communicate and collaborate efficiently to make our shared vision a reality. This Summit also included a new platform called Tech Stories where solution providers shared case studies and use cases of innovative technologies and how they have helped sites enroll or engage patients, refine processes, and prepare for the future.
Up next, we have the Australia-New Zealand Site Solutions Summit in Melbourne, Australia from July 18-19. The Summit will feature critical content for the region including staff recruitment, patient perspectives, regulatory guidance, and digital transformation opportunities. If your organization participates in clinical research in this region, this will be an event not to miss! Learn more and register.
Speaking of clinical technology, SCRS recently released a new Technology-Enabled Trials Training to provide a foundational understanding for sites to participate in trials that are technology-enabled. The training is designed for new staff or sites that have little to no experience participating in trials that contain technology or decentralized elements. Access the training for free today!
In this issue, read one clinical research professional’s moving story of patients that have made a huge impact on her and why she loves this profession. Be sure to download the eBook and white paper from Curebase and Datacubed Health as they share insights on eClinical technologies and how sites can succeed in DCTs. Greenphire also shares how to enable patient convenience through mobile technology, and Aspen Insights unpacks a common practice in many site enrollment feasibility analyses. If you’d like to learn how to show patients and trial participants gratitude in meaningful ways, and why we should never forget this crucial step in our work, TransCelerate discusses just that. And if you missed the 2023 Diversity Summit, read Teckro’s takeaways and call to action for the industry to help advocate for diverse populations in healthcare and research.
In case you missed it, our latest Diversity Webinar Series is now available and complimentary for all. Register now for virtual sessions happening throughout the year. And we always hope to see you soon at a future Summit or Sites NOW discussion!
