ACRP DCT Budget Buddy™

Budgeting for decentralized clinical trials (DCT) at your site just got a whole lot easier. ACRP is proud to offer a new tool to help site teams plan DCT trial budgets.

Understanding potential budget pitfalls — and planning to avoid them — is critical for site success. Lean on the collective experiences and expertise of site professionals who have been there, done that, and offered to share.

ACRP’s DCT Budget Buddy™ helps ensure you’re asking yourself the right questions when preparing DCT trial budgets, with specific consideration for:

  • Planning
  • Technology
  • Patient Engagement and Management
  • Patient-Focused Technology
  • Data Management and Quality Control
  • Monitoring and Site Management
  • Regulatory Compliance

ACRP’s DCT Budget Buddy™ can be customized for each of your trials involving DCT elements, ensuring you always have a partner helping make sure your site is accurately and adequately compensated.
