Patrick Flanagan, CEO of Veristat

Whatever the Outsourcing Model, What’s the Best Way to Manage it?

The reality with clinical outsourcing is that it’s extremely people dependent. Once relationships are sourced and pharma settles on governing and economics, the relationship moves down to different levels into the project teams. Roles and responsibilities in hand-offs become a challenge and often cause delays. This is where some of the biggest pressure points come from.

Everyone is under huge financial pressure and this tension can drive negative behavior, causing flare-ups. This session addresses the POV from Clinical operation heads on what they really want from their external teams and both CROs and sponsors discuss what can be different for 2016 and 2017.

The other panelists include:

Moderator: Jeffrey Kasher, PhD Founder, Patients Can’t Wait
