Metrics You Can Rely On

The visibility that underlies our methods serves to instill confidence in clinical trial operations. In accessing the trial meta-data, stakeholders can see how standard operating procedures (SOPs) are operationalized in the trial. The integration of clinical and meta-data within a single system delivers a more comprehensive picture of the overall conduct of the trial. The use of technology thus enhances quality control and project efficiency; but also makes the evidence of these artifacts easily manifest through the use of performance metrics, such as:

Site Activation

  • Cycle time to site qualification
  • Cycle time to first site activated
  • Cycle time to site activated
  • Regulatory pack approval rate
  • Percent planned sites activated

Site Performance

  • Cycle time from activation to first patient first visit (FPFV)
  • Site productivity (% meeting goals)
  • Screen failure rate
  • Patient accrual
  • Patient drop out rate

Data Quality

  • Cycle time to CRF data entry
  • Data discrepancies
  • Query response time
  • Source data verification

Close Out

  • Cycle time for query resolution
  • Cycle time from last patient last visit (LPLV) to data lock
  • Cycle time to site close out
  • Issue identification & resolution
