Exclusive Interview: Diane Shanahan, MedNet Solutions

We recently sat down for an exclusive interview with Diane Shanahan, director of Implementation Consulting at MedNet Solutions, who is an exhibitor at Partnerships in Clinical Trials taking place in Boston in a few weeks.

Over the past 24 years, the Partnerships in Clinical Trials meeting has become the bridge between clinical research and clinical care shifting with the move towards social and open innovation. Year after year, the event delivers more proven value than any other event of its kind, making it the annual meeting place for 1100+ clinical decision makers and the #1 trusted clinical partnering conference in the world.

Delegates from all parts of the clinical trial value chain come to Partnerships in Clinical Trials to quickly identify, engage and enter into strategic relationships that drive their clinical trials successfully forward as well as take part in the 60+ sessions and workshops geared to focus on several topic areas of interest including but not limited to risk-based monitoring, strategic sourcing, emerging market, patient adherence, and more.

Shanahan talked to us about how to blend traditional mindsets with technology to get the goal of cleaner, faster data. According to Shanahan, you have to start by thinking about what the end product is going to be. “We need to begin with the end in mind.”

The accuracy of documents from a clinical research study is totally dependent on the data collection. So, the first step is to design a protocol that clearly states the objective of the study, and clearly defines the data that will be collected to support those objectives. According to Shanahan, ideally, you would use a multifunctional team to accomplish this.
