TrialNetworks reported that ARIAD Pharmaceuticals, Inc. streamlined clinical trial site selection with a 75% response rate from potential sites located in 15 countries for a pivotal Phase II oncology study, besting the gold standard response by 25%. ARIAD chose to implement TrialNetworks Feasibility Survey because the online app makes collecting structured information from potential or existing sites quick, efficient and pain-free. In addition, Feasibility Survey integrates with other apps in the TrialNetworks platform to ensure a seamless transition from feasibility to site activation, training, document management, and the entire study startup process.
The majority of feasibility surveys are conducted inefficiently – often using paper, standard office spreadsheet programs or, at best, broad consumer survey software – typically yielding illegible, illogical, delayed and incomplete responses. This places a significant burden on the sponsor and CRO study teams to manually track non-responses, chase domestic and global sites to fill in missing or incorrect answers, and attempt to analyze responses across multiple versions of inconsistent formats.
Feasibility Survey solves these challenges by enabling sponsors to deploy secure, intelligently designed and easy-to-use surveys which guide study coordinators through survey completion, ensuring all questions are appropriately answered. Response options are formatted as clear, interactive fields (e.g. multiple choice, ranking tasks, free text, etc.) and can include text or video to guide respondents and encourage completion. Email reminders, custom alerts and detailed reporting provides sponsors with transparency into the survey progress so they can follow up efficiently with key sites yet to respond.
