As the clinical trial landscape evolves, the development of new products grows ever more complex. Sponsors are hard-pressed to scale their clinical trial operations when resources are fully tapped, protocols expand beyond the borders of any single country, and the web of external resources becomes challenging to manage.

Comprehend is partnering with Halloran Consulting Group to share industry trends in optimizing internal resources, and five best practices to maximize productivity, manage time and budget, and achieve actionable, accurate clinical Intelligence when working with internal and external teams.

Laurie Halloran, President and CEO of Halloran Consulting Group, will present the challenges and opportunities sponsors face when managing with limited resources. Sponsors must create strategic oversight capabilities and limit the redundancies from internal teams and vendors to achieve quality outcomes.


Comprehend will follow with five best practices based on a real-world case study of how a sponsor was able to increase trials and optimize their CRO relationship, without adding staff.
