Prevent Database Delays by Maximizing EDC System Efficiency, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

In a clinical research industry that prizes speed and cost efficiency above all else, the importance of preventing EDC database delays is difficult to overstate. But how can data managers ensure they're equipped with the tools and the know-how to do so?

Xtalks Life Science Webinars

Join Muhammad Bilal, Senior Director of Clinical Data Management at Topstone Research, as he explores this crucial consideration in this webinar. Bilal will bring his years of data management expertise, as well as his fluency in the essential clinical trial technology bolstering research today, to this thorough discussion of how to avoid EDC database delays.

In this live presentation, he’ll offer viewers best practices, tips and tricks, background, and context, providing viewers with answers to crucial questions such as:

  • What are the key factors behind database setup delays?
  • What approach to database design is most conducive to optimal timeline management?
  • How can I maximize the efficiency of my EDC system to accelerate database setup?
  • Why is it important to create an extensive template library within the EDC system?

Bilal’s insight and expertise in the webinar will be bolstered by that of Jeffery Doten, Professional Services Project Manager at Medrio, a cloud-based EDC system used in many clinical trials at Topstone. Together, they’ll approach the issue of database delays from two essential perspectives: that of the data managers tasked with database setup, and of the clinical trial technology providers tasked with creating the efficiency and flexibility that researchers depend on during this process.

Early delays can set the tone for an entire clinical trial – it’s essential to avoid delays that can jeopardize study timelines from the outset and require you to spend the rest of the study working to catch up. This webinar will equip viewers with the insight necessary to stop EDC database delays before they start and keep their studies on the path to success.
