It’s clear that eClinical solutions benefit clinical research sites in optimizing their work and maximizing opportunities for remote trial management. However, a site’s eClinical toolset can also be leveraged to win sponsor RFPs as this new paradigm supports more efficient research and, in turn, offers more effectively run trials. As you consider how your team prepares for long-term remote trials and other advances in clinical work, look beyond its benefits to your site and consider how sponsors would benefit from the capacities you offer. Making the case for how your eClinical solutions set you apart from award competition is best done through RFP answers that address key areas of sponsor interest including:
Expanded Study Capacity
Clinical research organizations, even those with multiple sites, have a defined capacity for study management. This often means that sponsors need to partner with an increased number of sites to get the complete study done. Make the case that, by using eClinical tools, your site can offer multi-site management, better remote study recruiting and management, the benefits of digital documentation, and simplified audit oversight for the sponsor.
Mitigating risk is perhaps the most significant financial benefit your site can provide to a sponsor through the implementation of eReg. eReg automates several processes, which makes tracking easier and reduces the risk of errors associated with manual methods. Increased efficiency and improved accuracy can lead to better results and elevated sponsor satisfaction. Increased compliance has real financial benefits which should be outlined in sponsor proposals.
Improved Trial Site Visit Efficiency
A significant amount of sponsor time during a trial is spent on-site inspections to ensure all elements of patient safety, clinical data accuracy, and investigational protocol adherence. The digital records that eClinical solutions provided make preparing for inspections less time-consuming and potentially reduce the time inspectors are on site. This has very real financial benefits for sponsors.
Investing in eClinical tools has many benefits for a clinical research site – not only will they make your teams work better, but they can have a very real effect on your future trial awards.
