Deerfield, IL (February 10, 2015) — Two key executives from Advanced Clinical, a full-service global CRO, functional outsourcing, and staffing provider, will be speaking at the 2015 SCOPE Summit for Clinical Ops Executives at the Hyatt Regency Orlando hotel in Orlando, Florida on February 24-26, 2015.

Julie Ross, Executive Vice President, CRO will contribute on a panel discussion titled “Mastering Budget Negotiations and Achieving Cost Savings”. The session takes place on Wednesday, February 25, 2015 at 11:15AM EST and the panelists will discuss the impact of stalled contract negotiations on the clinical trial process, as well as strategies and considerations for working through negotiations between sponsor, site and CRO to reduce costs and lead more efficient trials.  

“Effective budget negotiations during the contracting process can have a significant impact on cost and study start up,” say Ross. “The presentation will address different perspectives on cost management, in addition to talking through how planning, budgeting and communication affects change orders.” 

Susan Seroskie, RN, Executive Vice President, Functional Services, will co-present a presentation titled “Improving Outsourcing Partnerships”. Taking place on February 26, 2015 at 8:20AM EST, the presentation will highlight how strong service provider oversight and healthy relationship management makes the difference between success and failure in clinical trial execution.

“I am delighted to present both the sponsor’s and the service provider’s views on improving outsourcing partnerships,” says Seroskie. “We will take a deep-dive into the critical components necessary to build a successful partnership, such as relationship management, infrastructure, how to empower the functional teams, as well as the importance of open, honest communications and building trust between partners.”
