Site selection and feasibility, like many aspects of our work has changed significantly. Not only is selection criteria becoming much more specific, but the trials are becoming more complex - this means a narrower funnel for sites who are being asked to perform more tasks within a trial. This is coupled with the fact that digital technology is also having a significant impact on the site selection and feasibility process. Sponsors and CROs are using complex programs to better and more accurately assess sites for selection, and site are beginning to utilize technology more and more to find these specific patients they need within their own databases, or when assessing feasibility in an often rapid manner. This panel will address this change and how it is impacting our industry, as well as how technology is altering how site selection and feasibility criteria are determined and tracked against potential patients.

  • Identification and understanding of how site selection and feasibility criteria have changed and will continue to change
  • How technology has impacted this process
