Virtual ACRP 2020, Part I – Technology & Future Trends Track Replay

This package is a replay of the ACRP 2020 Virtual, Part I Program. It includes the following sessions:

  • Using SaaS (Software as a Solution) Methods in Research Operations Systems Implementation

At Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health we have worked to integrate technology and systems across research operations across multiple states and regional of our health system utilizing change management strategies and techniques for innovation implementation. We have implemented multiple systems for integration and interoperability. Systems within grants and contracts, HRPP, finance, human resources and our new CTMS. We have the utilized the SaaS (Software as a Solution) model very successfully and have gained substantial agility with very little customization required and out of the box and cloud based support. We have seen outcome measures that have reduced activation time by 39 days in one year, increased our grant portfolio and have seen our trial enrollments increase. Speaker: Leigh Burgess, MHA, MEd, MA, Vice President Research Operations, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health

    • Intersection of AI, Patient-Centricity and Ethical Considerations

The core competency challenges addressed here are leadership and ethical and safety considerations when using AI technology in clinical research. Our organization is part of a statewide Clinical and Translational Science Alliance (CTSA network). We review and collaborate on research trials with four major academic institutions, several independent healthcare systems and multiple academic-health systems inside/outside of Georgia. As part of the research knowledge and support (RKS) team we interface regularly regarding research ethics. A growing emphasis is harnessing AI potential while continuing to protect patient’s data and rights. To do this we need a diverse research team, versed in research competencies, technology, leadership, ethics and patient safety. We will briefly explain AI in a business environment, the progression into healthcare and clinical research with emphasis on continued, safe-ethical research conduct. Speaker: Karen Lindsley, DNP, RN, CCRC, CDE, Manager, Georgia Clinical and Translational Science Alliance (CTSA), Emory University; School of Medicine

  • Digital Twins in Clinical Trials: The Insight, Ethics and Opportunities

Digital twins enable pharma/medical devices companies to run faster, more efficient, and more powerful clinical trials. Get an overview of what digital twins are and how they are shaping clinical trials now and for the future. Speaker: Charles Fisher, PhD, Founder and CEO, Unlearn AI

  • Clinical Trials and the Future of Evidence Generation: CTTI’s Vision for 2030

From real-world data to mobile technologies and beyond, the clinical trials landscape is changing rapidly. Regulators are encouraging the use of innovative methodologies; data and tech companies are providing new platforms and tools; and with increasing access to new data sources, everything from recruitment to endpoints is evolving. In this session led by the multi-stakeholder Clinical Trials Transformation Initiative, join a conversation about the future of evidence generation, and the unique opportunities and challenges of the next ten years. Speakers: Leanne Madre, JD, MHA, Director of Strategy, Clinical Trials Transformation Initiative
