In the 1970s, post-approval studies were rarely performed. The 1980s saw a slight rise when the FDA began to require post-approval research as a condition for the approval of certain drugs. Fast forward to 2014, when a full 13.7% of total R&D costs was spent on conducting post-approval studies. What fueled this explosive growth in post-approval research in such a relatively short period of time? And – critically – what are the ramifications of that growth?

ROI Initiative: A Technology Solution for Investigator Payments

  • 12 Jan

Managing investigator payments faces specific, well-known challenges. Current systems are fragmented and manual, and in most cases are not transactional or financial-based.

The result of continuing with current processes is the inability to manage the complexity of the contract and budget terms that are negotiated and paid throughout the course of a clinical trial. Current document management systems (e.g., CTMS and other homegrown systems) are based on non-financial system information that doesn’t manage or account for the accuracy of payments made.
