Achieve high-quality EDC development through a comprehensive approach that involves more than technical proficiency.

Does preparing for a smooth implementation make you feel overwhelmed? No matter how much you accomplish, is there never enough time in the day? You are not alone. OmniComm Systems will be your partner and provide you with key tools to help ensure your organization has the expertise and resources necessary for a successful EDC implementation.

The majority of today’s EDC providers focus solely on technical proficiency when it comes to earning certification in their respective EDC solutions. While technical proficiency is indeed essential, research suggests that it is only one part of a three-step equation. Adding organizational support and operational readiness provides a holistic approach. We offer a three-pronged structure designed to help ensure that the right people are in the right roles to enable quality work from start to finish, and determine efficient processes and procedures are adopted to help support and sustain continued growth.

In this webinar, we will delve into the risk factors likely to impact a successful technology implementation and learn how to mitigate those factors. You will be surprised to learn that there is a method to successfully implementing an EDC system. Whether you are a novice, intermediate or expert EDC user, this webinar will be beneficial.

Register for our webinar to understand the knowledge and resources available to help you become an expert study builder in a leading EDC solution.

There will also be a live Q&A at the conclusion of the presentation.
