Clinical monitoring is a critical element of every clinical trial – and it can be one of the most costly aspects of your trial.
Much has been written about the use of risk-based monitoring (RBM) or risk-based quality management (RBQM). Remote monitoring and centralized monitoring have been promoted more recently as part of decentralized trial deployments.
So what are the right elements you should consider for your trial? You have a multitude of options, ranging from outsourcing your monitoring needs with a full-service RBM implementation driven by your CRO or partner of choice, or you could implement your own monitoring platform, integrating your study processes for use across your portfolio, or every aspect in-between.
If you are responsible for delivering clinical trials as a project lead, heading up clinical operations, medical or clinical monitoring, or driving your outsourcing strategy, you should understand the breadth of your choices.
