Conference Review: SCOPE 2018

Highlighting the recurring themes of Data, Analytics, Expertise, and Patient-centricity, 1,800 SCOPE attendees, among them many TayganPoint customers, recently congregated in Orlando, Florida not only to discuss new and innovative ways to move clinical research forward but also to donate 1,800 pentavalent vaccines through Greater Gift — one for every conference attendee.

As part of the conference, TayganPoint’s Jim Szakacs chaired a session on Effective Capacity Planning and Resource Management for Sites while Geert VanHove from bluecrux, a TayganPoint Alliance Partner, discussed Fostering a Committed Organization for Clinical Operations.  Numerous tracks, round-tables and discussions explored leveraging data into insight (moving from commodity to value) and how effective change could be realized in study conduct without the need for huge investments in Big Data.  Additionally, the urgency to drive Patient-centricity from buzz-word to actionable items with measurable benefits for the ecosystem of both patients and their care-providers was explored.
