Linda Martin, President and Founder, KMR Group to Speak at Clinical Trial Risk and Performance Management Summit

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Technology has made it easier to collect and report all manner of clinical trial performance metrics. But in that sea of data, are companies focusing on what will move their organization forward?

Clinical trial leaders in every biopharma company are struggling with these questions. Some are ahead of others, but few have mastered the art of turning metrics into process perfection.

Come to Princeton Nov. 14 and 15 for the first-ever Metrics Champion Consortium Summit. This will be an exclusive gathering of the top minds in trial performance metrics, spearheaded by MCC Executive Director Linda Sullivan. The keynote speaker will be Ken Getz, Associate Professor and Director, CSDD, Tufts University and Founder and Board Chair, CISCRP, clinical trials guru, founder of CenterWatch and an MCC partner.

Linda and Ken and the roster of experts will guide attendees through the issues that are top of mind in clinical trials metrics today:

  • How is ICH-E6(R2) changing what needs to be measured? What are global regulators looking for?
  • How do metrics influence behavior? Is it rewarding firefighting or preventing problems? Does staff have the critical thinking skills needed to root out what needs to be changed?
  • Centralized monitoring. How is industry approaching key risk indicators and quality tolerance limits?
  • Getting to the root of the problem. Pros and cons of traditional analytic approaches: Is there a better way?
  • Predictive analytics. The next-level key to success. But how to get there?

Linda Martin, President and Founder, KMR Group will present on the Next Gen Benchmarking in Biopharma. Benchmarks have been a key component in effective R&D and clinical trial management across the Industry for decades. Recently, the Industry has embraced more complex and analytical approaches to drive performance improvements. These techniques, built on machine learning, modeling, and advanced statistical approaches move beyond the general benchmarks to develop more sophisticated measures, models, and capabilities. These new approaches unearth a number of optimizations, specifically in country and site selection for clinical trials.

The Clinical Trial Risk and Performance Management Summit is interactive. Attendees roll up their sleeves with speakers and fellow attendees as they tackle case studies that will bring clarity to the metrics process — and provide needed answers.
