Health Decisions to Address Adaptive Patient Enrollment at Achieving Operational Efficiency in Clinical Trials 2010

CEO Dr. Michael Rosenberg will discuss how continuously adapting enrollment during studies prevents delays and setbacks

Dr. Michael Rosenberg, CEO of full-service contract research organization (CRO) Health Decisions, will explore adaptive techniques for ensuring timely enrollment of clinical studies at the first annual Achieving Operational Efficiency in Clinical Trials conference, held October 6 – 7, 2010 in Brussels, Belgium.

Entitled “Adaptive Enrollment: Outlining ways to prevent delays and trial setbacks by managing with real-time information during the study,” Dr. Rosenberg’s presentation will include the following topics:

  • Understanding why enrollment is the critical factor in determining study success and why it is such a pervasive challenge
  • Defining systems and information types needed to effectively and efficiently manage a trial in real time
  • Identifying opportunities to improve on-time enrollment statistics from the current 10 percent industry standard to 80 percent
  • Assessing ‘agile enrollment’ vs. current ‘best practices’ to uncover novel adaptive solutions
  • Using performance metrics to continuously track site-specific limitations and quickly resolve recruitment setbacks
  • Uncovering the ways in which adaptive monitoring can optimize patient retention

“Adaptive Enrollment” takes place Thursday, October 7 at 15:30 (3:30 p.m.) CET, initiating the portion of the conference dedicated to anticipating the surge in adaptive design use and assessing the implications of operational efficiency. The full event program is available online at the Achieving Operational Efficiency in Clinical Trials website.


Achieving Operational Efficiency in Clinical Trials was developed to bring clinical operations executives together to explore the newest and best solutions to today’s operational challenges and to provide heightened perspective about strategies that work. The conference’s first-ever meeting will be held at the Thon Hotel Bristol Stephanie in Brussels, Belgium October 6 – 7, 2010.

“Adaptive design is steadily gaining credibility in the drug and device development industries, but its core principles are just as impactful when applied to study operations, if not more so. This is especially true for patient enrollment, regardless of study size, complexity, or therapeutic area. By leveraging timely flows of key information to continuously improve the operational variables driving enrollment, setbacks can be avoided or surmounted, resulting in faster, more efficient studies with more reliable outcomes.”
