As the country starts to attempt to get back to normal, what about us sites? Are we able to get back to normal in an “easy,” three-phased approach? ClinX’s Al Peters and Christian Burns are going to discuss the past, the current, and the future as it relates to the site business model and what they are seeing sites are doing and could do as we move forward into the unknown.
Topics of discussion include:
1) The latest industry trends
2) Insights from sites responding to challenges with solutions
3) Enabling patient participation
4) Changes between client site and patient communication
5) Critical site budget changes
6) Sites are reopening, now what?
7) The future site business — where will we be in 10 years?
