Real-Time Patient Recruitment Metrics for Clinical Trial Success

By BBK Worldwide on Thu, Mar 6, 2014

It’s a no brainer that applied metrics are invaluable for more accurately projecting patient recruitment; however, many people assume that once a trial is underway, it’s no longer necessary to measure anything until all the study data are accumulated. That’s just not true. There is tremendous value  in the ongoing application of metrics, throughout the entire study cycle, so much so that we sometimes find it hard to imagine how anyone can conduct a successful study without metrics. But we’re not talking about numbers for numbers’ sake. It takes a great deal of expertise to know which measurements to take and how to interpret the findings.

Something has changed.

. . . Schminnovation

By Matt Kibby on Wed, Jun 12, 2013

The ascent of the buzzword “innovation” in our industry conferences, articles, and blogs has been meteoric. Not sure about you, but for me it has become so mainstream and overused at this point that the word is now a popular cliché – something that is, in and of itself, indolent and predictable.

Andy Warhol once noted that, “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.” Well that was 45 years ago, and the future has arrived. Trouble is, I really don’t think that anyone’s attention span lasts even remotely that long.
