DrugDev Hosts New Complimentary Webinar, “The Evolution of Payments: It’s More Than Just a Transaction”
Make clinical trial sites and investigators want to work on your clinical trial by creating a timely, transparent strategy to track, analyze and forecast payments
As the leader in global clinical site payments with nearly $2 billion processed to 25,000+ clinical sites in 60 countries, DrugDev knows investigator grant spend is among the top expenses in clinical trials, yet, the ability for sponsors and CROs to properly track, analyze, and forecast this spend has been severely limited. This represents a significant increase in investigator site payment requirements beyond simply transferring funds from one account to another.
Learn how to solve these issues and more at a live webinar December 1, 12- 1pm EST. BioMarin Associate Director and Head of Analytics Brenda Medina and DrugDev President, Payments Stu Thiede will share best practices to track, analyze and forecast payments in a timely and transparent way to better support the needs of clinical trial sites and investigators.

Payments experts Brenda and Stu will discuss the following topics in addition to leading a Q&A session:
- Importance of data transparency and reporting

Stu Thiede explains, “Global studies are complex and present numerous challenges for the clinical operations team especially when it comes to investigator payments. In this webinar we’ll discuss how sponsors and CROs can significantly improve their game in managing country specific regulations, multiple site payees, aggregate spend reporting, VAT taxes, and cultural and language differences. The goal is to develop a payment system that keeps sites happy and engaged, expenses in line, and the study timeline on track.”
