Master Workshop: Position Your Site to Lead the Charge to the Future of Decentralized, Patient-centric Clinical Trials
Featured Speaker: Dr. Jeff Kingsley, CEO of IACT Health and COO of hyperCORE International
Siteless trials. Decentralized clinical trials. Hybrid models. Arguably, the COVID-19 pandemic has done more to accelerate the pace of change across virtually all industries, clinical trials being no exception and shows no sign of slowing. Join top industry executives from leading Integrated Research Organizations, a leading global CRO and one of the most innovative technology solutions providers to learn how trial sites should position themselves in the face of a rapidly changing site landscape. Attendees should expect to learn not just how trial sites can maintain their relevance as this trend towards more patient-centric business models and the use of advanced technologies accelerates but how sites can thrive by being on the leading edge of embracing the change.
