Efficiently managing multicenter clinical trials is an essential capability of the modern research center. Complex protocols often require diverse subjects spread across a vast network of research sites – increasing pressure on the coordinating center to streamline operations, maintain oversight, and avoid compliance risks.
While the challenges of managing multicenter trials is unique for every coordinating center, they are often categorized into four common areas: Lack of workflow standardization, lack of visibility and collaboration, coordinator turnover, and the need for additional training and site support.
As technology solutions continue to transform clinical research operations, one of the key improvements we’ve seen is the ability for coordinating centers to reduce, or even eliminate, these critical challenges associated with managing multicenter clinical research.
Florence eBinders is the leading multicenter research platform harnessed by coordinating centers around the world to streamline multisite management. Our patented method for managing a network of research sites on a single digital ecosystem is empowering multisite trials for more than 4,500 research sites, investigators, sponsors, and CROs.
With Florence, every site receives their own fully equipped digital workspace where they actively manage all regulatory and source documents, workflows, and processes. The coordinating center is then able to see real-time insights into site progress, seamlessly exchange documents, and assign tasks and projects to individual sites and site staff.
