Clinical Operations Optimization is Featured at Partnerships in Clinical Trials

Applied Clinical Trials is sponsoring the Clinical Operations Optimization track at this year’s Partnerships in Clinical Trials conference taking place April 22-24 in Boston.

Partnerships describes the track as: “This track is designed for professionals in the clinical operations, site management, and patient recruitment field to improve operational practices.”

The Clin Op Op track is a great fit for Applied Clinical Trials, so we are thrilled. The first word in the title of our magazine and website says it all—Applied. The anchor articles, our peer-reviewed selections, are developed by the do-ers working in our industry and reviewed by the experts who also have worked their way up. Our readership, in print and online, is 25 percent project managers, people who are in charge of the day-to-day operations of clinical trials. The next largest group is executives, who most likely know what applied looks like on a day-to-day, as well as an overarching strategy. So we are really looking forward to sponsoring this track.

Today, optimization is a word getting a lot of play due to the statistics, which I’m sure you’ve heard, about the cost to develop one drug through trials to market authorization. Partnerships uses the word improve in the description, but I think optimization couples efficiencies with innovation, which is definitely an improvement.

These following six sessions are what represent a horizontal view of optimization in clin ops:
