Which Metrics Should Clinical Trial Sites Promote to Sponsors

Data is an invaluable tool in the clinical trial toolbox—especially when it comes to dealing with your sponsors. Accurate and current data demonstrates to potential and current sponsors that your organization is capable of effectively organizing, running, and analyzing a successful trial—and delivering the results they need. But with all of the data you can show sponsors, which metrics will matter the most in advancing your sponsor relationships and become a selected site time after time?

Current Trial Site Performance Metrics

Metrics that show your current site performance help your sponsor determine your current capabilities and track record. These metrics include, but are not limited to:

  • Trials completed
  • Patients available, screened, enrolled, completed, failed screenings, and dropped out
  • Screening, enrollment, and retention rates
  • Percentage of contracts met
  • Current studies in indication

Showing a Clinical Trial Site’s Efficiency

While results cannot be rushed, a site that presents data indicating greater efficiency and less downtime offers an advantage. Here are some timing-related figures a sponsor might look for:

  • Cycle times: CDAs, feasibility, contracts, budgets, etc.
  • Feasibility turnaround time
  • Regulatory packet turnaround time
  • Time from initial budget to contract execution
  • Days spent at different stages of the process
  • Time from site activation to commencement of screening
  • Site activation to screening
  • Relate timing metrics

As you prepare your sponsor promotions, be sure to involve your site team so they can both be aware of the target metrics and can help track trends or pinpoint areas for improvement.  To learn more about promoting your site to sponsors, download our newest guide, ”How to Maximize Sponsor Relations & Opportunities with Data.”
