Investigator Meetings are the lynchpin of clinical drug trials.
Pharma companies can only get the best ROI if investigators and their staff experience a well-organized, positive, and efficient meeting.
The higher their enthusiasm coming out of the meeting, the more effective they will be in enrolling patients for the study.
Conversely, a negative experience will inevitably doom the study to failure, wasting valuable time and resources for everyone involved.
Why Outsource Investigator Meetings?
- Investigator Meetings are much more complex than they may appear – requiring far more than site selection, menu planning, guest registration and bill reconciliation
- Time and labor-intensive tasks require special expertise
- Database management and changes for attendees continue up until the last moment.
- On-site duties would take internal staff out of the office for days – and often require comp time for weekends
- Coordinate A/V, Ground Transportation, and hundreds of other details – often in unfamiliar locations
- Hundreds of reimbursements for expenses to process
