Measure What Matters to Optimize Clinical Trials

Too much data and not enough actionable information can lead to poor decisions and potentially put a clinical trial at risk. To effectively measure and standardize clinical trial processes and timelines, it’s critical that research sponsors leverage the right performance metrics – those that add value. They can help prevent clinical research errors, cost overruns and threats to outcome quality. MCC members help each other avoid “reinventing the wheel.” Leveraging the power of their combined knowledge, members share best practices and metric sets that have been developed and vetted by clinical trial experts from more than 100 organizations across MCC’s network. In aligning how best to simplify and standardize the measurement process—for various aspects of clinical trials—MCC members help each other identify new ways to make metrics and their output easier to understand, analyze and put into practice.

Member Collaborative Groups

MCC Communities of Practice
Members share ideas and practical approaches to address challenges unique to each community.

MCC Metric Development Work Groups
Each MCC metric set is developed through structured discussions in collaborative work groups. MCC staff and subject matter experts work with MCC member representatives to develop metric toolkits that align with key performance questions.

MCC Implementation Q&A Groups
Members are provided the opportunity to ask questions and share experiences related to implementing specific metric sets or tools at quarterly web-based meetings.

“Ever since I joined the MCC half year ago, I have learned a lot from the workshop, expert seminar and all the tools and reference documents provided by MCC. I just want to let you know that I greatly appreciated all the efforts to put it together by the MCC. Your work is absolutely most valuable. Thank you!”

“Some of the best money I think we have ever spent as a department”

“What I appreciate about the MCC is that you get stuff done. It’s not just about talking and discussing. You’re tool oriented which is great.”
