Matching ClinOps Technologies to ClinOps Realities

(The ClinOps Technology Adoption Curve)


As a ClinOps leader, you are awash with an alphabet soup of technologies to facilitate Clinical Trials, including eTMF, IDC, AI, eTMF, CTMS, and IVRS. 

But all technologies are not created equal. Some apply to specific types of trials and sponsors, and some make sense for a 500 site study but not a five-site study. Most of all, different technologies apply based on where you are in the ClinOps Technology Adoption Curve.

Which technologies and applications make sense for your ClinOps team based on your studies and where you are in your evolution?

Listen in to learn:

  • What is the ClinOps Technology Adoption Curve?
  • How to determine WHERE you are in your evolution
  • WHICH technologies will have the most significant impact in the near term

You will leave with an initial draft set of initiatives and investments to guide your transition to the next level on the curve.

How CROs and Sponsors Improve TMF Management with a Shared eTMF

Join Agatha and DZS Clinical Services on February 17th, at 1 pm ET (10 am PT), when they will discuss how clinical trial sponsors and CROs can leverage a shared electronic TMF as a hub for collaboration and coordination of the TMF. Watch the replay.

The Trial Master File (TMF) is the repository for all essential documents supporting a clinical trial. But its role is going beyond a simple storage container for files, as CROs and Sponsors work together to manage not only the collection of TMF documents but also the review and inspection processes, both internally and externally.

During the webinar, Agatha’s Head of North American Operations, Ken Lownie, and Kari Brown, Director of Clinical Operations, DZS Clinical Services, will discuss:

  • The role of the TMF and how it is evolving
  • Why CROs and Sponsors need to work together to manage the TMF successfully
  • How the right eTMF enforces process coordination and collaboration
  • The key features of a modern eTMF application
  • How to build a shared responsibility model for the TMF

5 Steps to TMF Inspection Readiness

The Five Steps to TMF “Inspection Readiness” explores the real meaning of being inspection-ready and demonstrates why that goal is impossible without a more modern plan. 

Janine Penman, a clinical operations consultant with JPScientific Inc., and Ken Lownie, Head of North American Operations for Agatha, will explore what it means to be inspection-ready and take you through what you need to do to ensure your TMF content and data is ready whenever the auditors come. Questions answered:

  • What does the FDA requirement to be “Inspection Ready” mean?
  • How does an eTMF solution ensure Inspection Readiness?
  • What are the five key capabilities an eTMF must have to ensure Inspection readiness?
  • What does it take to implement an eTMF application?
  • How do you make the case for bringing in an eTMF application?

5 Tell Tale Sign You are Ready for an eTMF

Learn the five indicators that clearly signal your organization is not only ready for an eTMF but needs an eTMF to continue to conduct studies effectively. You will hear how other companies have analyzed their needs and decided in favor of – or against – an eTMF.

Agatha joined up with CenterWatch for the following webinar which you can now watch on-demand

Every life sciences organization managing a clinical study needs to manage the Trial Master File. But there are lots of ways to collect and track TMF content, from paper to shared drives to complete software systems purpose-built – known as an eTMF system. The question is, how do you know that your organization is ready for an eTMF?

In this webinar, you will learn: 

  • The five signs that clearly signal your organization is ready to move to an eTMF
  • The most important features and functions of an eTMF application
  • The best predictors of success with a new eTMF
  • How an eTMF can save time and money, and how you can calculate those savings * How to build support internally for an eTMF initiative.

    A Site Assessment Tool for Remote Monitoring

    Agatha sponsored the Proactive GCP Compliance Conference. Many dropped by our virtual booth for a chat about ClinOps technology, including TMF, Remote Monitoring, Quality, and Regulatory compliance.

    This session introduces a toolset for measuring the fit and readiness of a study site, which can be incorporated into the overall plan for transitioning to a remote monitoring model. Here is what the session covers:

    • The Six Dimensions of evaluation for a site’s readiness for moving to remote monitoring
    • A “Heat Map” model to focus attention on the most critical areas to address before moving to remote monitoring

      Bringing ClinOps Technology to the Clinical Site: Stories from the Frontlines


      • Ken Lownie, Head of North American Operations
      • Jill Heinz, Director of Research, Family Care Research/Injury Care Research

      ClinOps software and systems that address source file management, SOP documentation, and trial management have been adopted across sponsors and CROs, but less so at clinical sites. This reflects a justified hesitation to put an additional burden on clinical sites, who are typically short of the staff and budget needed to support new technology.

      But some sites HAVE adopted these kinds of systems and are enjoying the benefits of automation in terms of efficiency and compliance. In this session, we will explore the challenges that face sites and a set of strategies to overcome them. We will attack the topic from two sides, first through the lens of the site and second through the eyes of a software vendor.

      Join us for this session and leave with:

      • An understanding of how ClinOps software fits into the world of the clinical site
      • An example of how one clinical site manager brought in a full range of software solutions successfully
      • A list of the challenges she faced and the strategies she used to overcome them
      • A perspective on the state of the software systems and solutions available today

      Implementing Remote Monitoring: Navigating Technical & Organizational Obstacles
