One of the most commonly asked questions I get from my new research site clients or partners is "when can we start screening for our new study". The answer is always "right after your site initiation visit and that can be anywhere from next week until three months from now". In this video I explain and try to alleviate some of you new research site owners' anxiety. Hope this helps.
In this video, Chris Sauber and I discuss in depth strategies for how to expand your principal investigator network for your clinical research company.
Site Management Organizations (SMO's) evolved over the past several decades from small research sites to nationwide research networks. Unfortunately many developed bad reputations and Sponsors as well as CRO's have shied away from using the, This video explains why, and I also get into some other topics such as how to obtain studies for your company and more.

Research sites should always be looking towards expanding their physician network when it comes to their clinical research business. In this video, Chris and I give 3 actionable ways any research site owner can begin doing immediately!
I have done many videos of this sort in the past but have usually focused on strategies for paying Principal Investigators. In this particular video, I discuss some creative ways to reimburse your sub investigators that you end up inevitably working with at your clinical trial sites. What are some of the ways you have compensated sub investigators?
It is natural for companies to want to expand. I believe that we as entrepreneurs are always looking for ways to increase our market share. Unfortunately, too many research clinics try to grow too big too quickly, and we end up with failed companies. I have countless viewers that email me that they would like to launch their own Site Management Organization (SMO). Not only do SMO's have bad reputations, it is my personal opinion that you should start off with one clinic and only expand when you have to, or when the market dictates. In this video I answer a viewer question in regards to their site expanding out of necessity-they simply ran out of real estate in their existing office. I go through some of the challenges, and explain how to perhaps make the process a bit easier. Let me know your thoughts.
Sponsors and Contract Research Organizations (CRO's) are beginning to track metrics such as the length of time that it takes for sites to react to study needs. Although these reports are slowly entering the field of research, they are expected to affect every research site.
