Making Metric Collection Obligatory in Clinical Trial Contracts

Medical Writing Team

Establishing robust metrics at the start of a study, and systems to monitor them in an ongoing manner, should be integral to all work that a Clinical Research Organisation (CRO) performs. There is an expectation from clients that metrics will be used to monitor progress or lack of progress, including deviations from the planned schedule. However, these metrics are sometimes not defined clearly at the outset and often not incorporated into clinical trial contracts. A lot of metrics need to be “balanced” between what is controllable by the CRO and what is controllable by the sponsor. Therefore, the metrics that are incorporated into a contract need to be carefully chosen. Ideally it should be a small and accurate set of performance metrics that will meet the customer’s needs and enforce efficient information flow – it being a breach of contract not to provide and review the metrics.
