Webinar: Why Biotechs and Small Pharmas Should Outsource Site Payments
Date: March 29, 2017
Time: 12:00-1:00 pm EDT
The webinar is complimentary
“Site payments are a complex process that demands significant time and experience to get right,” said Leslie. “In most cases internal teams, especially at smaller companies, don’t have the expertise or resources to focus on payments full-time –while CROs are more concerned with other aspects of running a trial. And site payments are too important to become an afterthought. If sites experiences frustration getting paid for its work they are unlikely to stay motivated and/or participate in another trial for that sponsor. At the webinar, we will learn how to avoid this trap and distinguish your organization as being committed to paying sites for their work reliably and on time.”
