October 16, 2018 – Durham, NC Cenduit LLC subject matter experts will discuss how sponsors and CROs can use technology to build and deploy quality, patient-focused studies that quickly accommodate System Changes at the IRT USA 2018 Conference, October 22-23 in Philadelphia.

Director of Client Delivery Andrew Rohrbaugh, and Associate Director of Operational & Process Excellence Christopher Gent will co-present, “Putting the Patient at the Center: A New Approach to System Change Requests (SCRs)” on October 23, 9:55 am.

Protocol Amendments and SCRs are becoming more prevalent in biopharma as more study protocols change rapidly while in development, or shortly after go-live. Today’s estimations indicate that at least 50% of studies will need a protocol amendment. This trend is being driven by costs and greater complexities, and the need to make more flexible adjustments with the best interests of patients in mind.

This presentation by Cenduit’s global operational excellence (OpEx) experts will educate attendees on how sponsors and CROs can deploy customizable, configurable studies with the quality built-in, to handle system changes quickly while maintaining data integrity, helping to reduce overall time to market. 

After this presentation attendees will understand how to:

●       Align systems and strategies in SCRs

●       Standardize daily clinical study management

●       Eliminate waste and variation, and optimize throughput

●       Involve, align and empower all trial stakeholders to focus on the patient

A core principle of Cenduit’s service delivery model is to redefine and industrialize the OpEx model to make SCRs fast, smooth and safe. Read more: Where OpEx Meets Client Delight.
