Building on the success of its long-running US-based counterpart, the SCOPE Summit for Clinical Ops Executives this year took place in Barcelona, Spain, on 17-18 September, 2019. The Conference topics deep dived into the challenges and opportunities for clinical research in Europe and beyond.
Comac Medical’s team took the opportunity to connect with experts and clients, and to keep a finger on the pulse of the industry. The two-day event gathered clinical innovation leaders, clinical ops execs, functional heads, category managers, and those responsible for the planning and management of clinical trials in Europe and the rest of the world.
The SCOPE Summit covered important issues in clinical trial operations including protocol development, global site selection, feasibility, site management, patient engagement, enrollment planning, patient recruitment, patient retention, improving site-study activation and performance, functional/full-service outsourcing and partnerships, new regulations and guidelines, Risk-Based Monitoring (RBM), clinical technology, big data and analytics, Real-World Data (RWD), Artificial Intelligence (AI), resource management, trial forecasting, and improving overall quality and speed of clinical trials. Comac Medical’s team seized the occasion to share best practices and discuss the new era of analytics-driven and patient-centric trials with leaders from pharma, specialty pharma, biotech, vendor companies, and academic research centers.
