GuideStar® SVP Leads Webinar on Managing Clinical Research Programs

Deerfield, IL – GuideStar Clinical Trials Management and Bio-Optronics recently co-sponsored a webinar about how to manage a research program as a successful business. GuideStar’s Senior Vice President of Research Operations, Dr. Rhonda Paz, led the presentation and shared best practices based on more than 25 years of leadership experience in clinical research.

During the webinar Dr. Paz specifically discussed six key areas to evaluate when measuring the success of a clinical research program:

  1. Staffing and organization
  2. Trial portfolio mix
  3. Pre-award processing
  4. Post-award management
  5. Compliance
  6. Metrics to measure program progress

Nearly 200 research professionals from academic medical centers, community hospitals and health systems, medical practices and pharmaceutical companies attended the webinar. This type of turn-out demonstrates that research program leaders across the board are looking for ways to make their programs more efficient and increase revenues by applying best practices from business management.

GuideStar’s experience shows that operational excellence leads to strong clinical trial programs and will continue to offer educational opportunities focused on best business practices that apply to research.
