We work with our clients to define the right technology-enabled risk management processes, key risk indicators (KRIs), quality tolerance limits (QTLs), and assessment/categorization tools that enable risk-based approaches across the company, program, and study levels. These processes allow for earlier detection and mitigation of risks, proactive decision making, and cost-saving operational efficiencies.
At the sponsor, program, and/or study level, we perform a risk assessment with the key stakeholders and vendors to identify the critical risks, thresholds, and mitigations for the clinical trials and new virtual options using an efficient, pre-configured risk assessment and categorization tool (RACT). We outline the risk management strategy and clear risk triage and communication processes in an integrated quality and risk management plan (IQRMP) and update functional plans as needed. We also develop and implement a risk-based monitoring (RBM) strategy/framework that fits into the risk management process.
Our deliverables include:
- Integrated Quality and Risk Management Plan (IQRMP)
- Risk Assessment and Categorization Tool (RACT) alignment across all vendors and stakeholders
- Key Risk Indicator (KRI) Library development and customization per study
- Risk-Based Monitoring strategy and framework development and implementation support
