ClearTrial Industry Expert to Lead Session at DIA Annual Meeting on Improving Accrual and Contract Management in Clinical Trials
Date:6/11/2009

Panel of leading biopharma executives will discuss how Earned Value Management can improve control over clinical development costs, payments, and accruals and facilitate compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley at the DIA 45th Annual Meeting in San Diego.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 11, 2009 -- ClearTrial (www.cleartrial.com), a leading provider of clinical trial software for clinical trial operations planning, budgeting, and outsourcing, announced today that Kristin Lucas, Senior Director, Clinical Services, will chair a cross-functional panel of clinical finance and operations experts in discussing "Improving Accrual and Contract Management with Earned Value Management" at the DIA 45th Annual Meeting. Held at the San Diego Convention Center, June 21-25, 2009, the meeting will bring together the biggest names from industry, regulatory, and academia to discuss the issues affecting global drug discovery and development.

Given the unprecedented challenges facing biopharma companies, the ability to accurately measure the performance of clinical studies and better manage cost and schedule components is becoming even more critical. Earned Value Management (EVM), a widely accepted practice in many industries, has gained significant momentum in clinical development based on its ability to:

*Accurately calculate accruals based on when work is actually performed
*Quickly determine if studies are on budget by task, provider or resources
*Effectively track project performance and timelines to determine project health
*Facilitate compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley

Lucas brings more than 15 years of experience in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry to the meeting, with extensive experience in clinical trial budgeting and contract management. Before joining ClearTrial, she led the Financial Administration division for the Clinical Business Management department at ICOS Corporation (an Eli Lilly company), where she worked on the blockbuster drug Cialis®. At ICOS, Lucas was responsible for establishing best practices in the outsourcing, management, drafting, and negotiation of site and vendor agreements, as well as the development of a clinical budgeting/modeling application for lifecycle planning, budgeting and in-licensing opportunity assessment. Prior to ICOS, Lucas spent seven years with Genentech, where she was responsible for the negotiation, positioning, and pricing strategy for managed care contracts.
