Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 7th Annual

Clinical Trial Forecasting and Budgeting:  

Innovative Budgeting and Contracting for Cost-Efficient Trials
January 24-25, 2017 | Hyatt Regency Miami | Miami, FL


The need for accurate trial forecasting, budgeting, and contracting is continuing to grow as costs continue to rise and pressure to do more with less increases. Developing strategies for better financial planning, budgeting, and contracting can reduce these pressures and lead to streamlined, cost-efficient trials. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Seventh Annual “Clinical Trial Forecasting and Budgeting” conference shares best practices and case studies on building more effective budgets and contracts as well as innovative strategies in communicating and negotiating costs with vendors and CROs.

INTERACTIVE BREAKOUT DISCUSSION GROUPS

Concurrent breakout discussion groups are interactive, guided discussions hosted by a facilitator or set of co-facilitators to discuss some of the more poignant questions facing the industry. Delegates will join a table of interest to them and become an active part of the discussion at hand. It is an informal, yet informative, format that allows attendees to learn from each other and make some new contacts. To get the most out of this interactive format, please come prepared to: share examples from your work, vet some ideas with your peers, be a part of group interrogation and problem solving, and, most importantly, participate in active idea sharing.
