  • Regulations and laws impacting DCTs across multiple jurisdictions and countries
  • ICH6 –GCP update and revision
  • Regulatory GXP rules
  • Privacy principles and confidentiality matters
  • Data security, ownership, protection, portability, and interoperability
  • Case study and lessons learned from DCTs

Real-World Applications for Faster, More Complete Clinical Data
11am EDT / 4pm BST / 5pm CEST

In this session, Science 37’s Gordon Cummins and Sanofi’s Paul Rowe, MD will look at how agile clinical trials (comprising at least one decentralized tool or approach, such as a Metasite) offer faster enrollment, greater retention, increased diversity, and improved patient engagement—which, in turn, enable these agile studies to unleash the true potential of real-world data sets.

The presenters will use case studies and data to share best practices for collecting and managing real-world data, along with the most effective applications for using it — and demonstrate why agile clinical trial approaches can be so effective in RWE.

Content will include:

  • Why the agile clinical trial is a game-changer for obtaining and using clinical and real-world data
  • How the agile model impacts the patient experience, enabling quicker enrollment, better retention and increased diversity
  • Best practices for using agile approaches to collect real-world data
  • Most effective applications for real-world data
  • Creating effective long-term, follow-up studies
  • Considerations for calculating the ROI of agile clinical trials and real-world applications

DAY 2 – MAY 10, 2022

How Digital Tools are Enhancing Decentralized Clinical Trials in the Home
9am EDT / 2pm BST / 3pm CEST

In a world where Decentralized Clinical Trials (DCT) are becoming more digital, how can we as an industry continue to deliver exceptional patient care and make participating in trials easier, all while making best use of clinical and digital technology (eClinical)solutions?

eClinical expert, Edward Triebell, will share his knowledge and experience on the importance of robust digital elements as part of your decentralized clinical trial strategy and how digital solutions have impacted and will continue to impact the clinical trials industry.

During this keynote meeting, MRN will share learnings and best practices on working with digital tools as part of your DCT molecule and show you how combining healthcare professionals with digital tools can empower and deliver the most benefits for your trial.

DAY 3 – MAY 11, 2022

Next-Generation Clinical Data Management
9am EDT / 2pm BST / 3pm CEST

Unlocking the potential of the next generation of clinical trials will require transformative change in how we approach collecting and managing clinical data. As we move beyond CRFs and embrace eSource, committing to collecting structured data will be vital. With structured data, data ontologies can both increase the usefulness of the data collected, and reveal previously-hidden insights, but only if we are willing to make the investment.

How to Measure Success in a Decentralized Trial
10am EDT / 3pm BST / 4pm CES

Over the past year, it is estimated that one quarter of all clinical studies have included a decentralize component or components[1]. We have seen the way we collect clinical research data significantly change due to COVID related travel restrictions. We have seen the increase of data collection from virtual/telehealth visits, home health providers in a patient’s home, and wearable medical devices. Our tools for measuring performance and success within these types of studies need to change to stay relevant to this new paradigm.

Traditional data management metrics, as referenced in the GCDMP are broken down into paper-based metrics and EDC based metrics. Currently there isn’t any mention of metrics in decentralized trials. Metrics such as ‘the number of days from Patient Visit complete to eCRF page entered in EDC system’[2] may not be relevant with direct data capture technologies. Some items such as ‘Calendar days from time query generated to query response on EDC system’[3] are no longer measured in days or weeks, but oftentimes can be measured in hours.

This presentation will provide thought leadership on a new analytics methodology to measure the compliance, timeliness and quality in a decentralized trials environment.
