Your Needs

Monitoring performance, evaluating a study’s health, tracking biospecimens and assessing results has become increasingly challenging in today’s evolving clinical testing landscape. Common issues like missing samples, incorrect specimen collection, kit expiry and deviations from the protocol can impact clinical trial execution – and jeopardize regulatory compliance.

Sponsors are also finding that they need a higher level of reporting and monitoring in their clinical trial process to accommodate procedures like conditional shipping, conditional testing or monitoring of the randomization table, without the expense and delay of ad hoc requests.

Recognizing the opportunity to address these clinical trial challenges, Covance has designed an efficient, straightforward process to help sponsors understand the current status of their studies, sites and trends with an innovative solution for standard and custom reporting.

Optimize the overall health of your study and build efficiencies into your process with Personalized Study Performance Management. Before your testing starts, our experts work with you to determine your needs, evaluate your protocol and set up a strategy for increasing clinical trial transparency – from sample tracking to site performance and result analytics.

You decide if you want to be involved in reviewing the alerts and flags, or, leave the entire analysis and review process up to us. Regardless of your choice, our automated, consistent monitoring process is fully customized to your study’s needs.
