Best practice research findings detail how clinical operation leaders shrink study times, reduce costs, improve study quality, and move development-stage products more rapidly toward the marketplace. Research metrics, process insights and executive interviews probe three operations required for high performance: 1) recruiting high-performing investigators, 2) clinical investigator relationship management systems, and 3) best practices in communicating the value of clinical trials to potential investigators.
