Quality Management Perspectives


This article details some of the findings from our white paper exploring the best practices for developing a comprehensive quality management approach that supports RBQM methodologies, and reports practical quality measures used to evaluate the overall benefit and impact of such an approach. Upon release of the regulatory guidance in 2013, Covance created the operational processes and implemented Xcellerate® technology for risk-based monitoring. Following the positive results of this initial pilot phase, Covance transformed this risk-based monitoring approach into a comprehensive, end-to-end RBQM solution. As more studies have implemented Xcellerate, more measurable proof was sought to quantify the efficiency and quality benefits generated by RBQM. The metrics we report in this study work well to compare studies executed with and without the RBQM approach. In addition to quality metrics, we have identified a number of efficiency metrics that should be positively impacted by RBQM. Effective and proactive central risk monitoring should reduce time needed for on-site monitoring. Effective tools for central data review should reduce physician's time, enhance medical issue detection, and improve patient retention during the trial. A robust solution for risk and issue management should accelerate issue resolution and decrease issue aging. Further, the overall data quality oversight should enhance accuracy and timelines of data collection, hopefully resulting in a faster database lock. The Covance team began evaluating efficiency metrics by considering the impact of Xcellerate® Risk Review in assessing the reduction in time spent on-site monitoring. Considering 129 studies that took place over the past five years with at least 500 monitoring hours recorded, a 38% reduction was observed in time spent on-site monitoring with mega-trials and 34% without mega-trials. With such a substantial reduction in time discovered, the study team considered time spent on-site in activities outside of site monitoring. A small reduction of 7% in site management was observed, verifying that the sneak a peek at this web-site. 38% reduction in site monitoring time is not significantly offset by other activities. Considered together with the reduction in the time spent on-site monitoring, the observed reduction in the overall site management time is significant and important for the industry. Sponsors that embrace RBQM will utilize site management resources more efficiently which should promote increased study quality through the benefit of additional efficiencies. To assess the impact of RBQM on study quality, we considered a reduction in critical and major findings from the site oversight quality control (QC) visits.


Solutions rannge in functionality, however, with the use of automation capabilities they typically have followed by companies selling in Europe, Canada, Australia, and other markets. For these surveys: AzCH-CCPmany conduct surveys of a adequacy of corrective actions and any trends which require further investigation.

Last week, Gélinas introduced a motion to the standing committee on public accounts to have Ontario Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk do a complete review of the situation and it passed. "How could it be, years after years, KPMG does an audit of the university and they tell them everything is good and then eight months later we're $200 million in debt?" she asked. "How could you explain this?" Gélinas said she was pleasantly surprised at the support she received, even from some on the government side of the legislature. "I think (Conservative) MPP Toby Barrett said it best when he said 'I had no idea this was happening in your community,' and they voted in favour of sending the auditor to Laurentian University to get to the bottom of what happened financially," she told CTV News. There have been a lot of calls for an inquiry in the wake of so many people losing their jobs but Gélinas said this will get the community the answers it needs faster, and her audit will be made public. "The auditor general is an officer of the Legislature and being an officer means she comes with a ton of power," she said. "She has the right to enter a premises, whether she's welcome there or not; she has the right to have access to documents whether they are private or not; she has the right to ask questions and people have to answer." "She will be able to tell us if those are good, bad or terrible decisions that they've made," she added. The auditor general has not said publicly when she and her team plan to arrive but Gélinas said it will be soon. She said the auditor general's report would take months, as opposed to years for an inquiry. Gélinas is not the only one that wants the situation investigated. Retired homicide investigator Craig Davies said he has been talking to anyone who believes they are owed money by Laurentian and plans to hand his findings over to the auditor general's team. Davies, the son of the former Regional Municipality of Sudbury Chair Tom Davies, said he just couldn't sit by and watch. "I am a retired person, a concerned person who has a lot of time on my hands and I was concerned about the situation as many people are at Laurentian University," he said. "It's one thing to talk about it but I come from a background where if you have the ability to do something about it, then you do it." He said it was the elimination of the physics program that specifically motivated him to get off the couch. "We are literally changing the world and the physics lab at Laurentian is the home lab for the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNOLab), not only that but it also looks after the radiation technician program," Davies said. "It's a travesty with what they've done with these people." "All we want is the truth. We're not accusing anyone of anything. We just want to hear the truth and we haven't been told that yet." The retired investigator said no one is saying there's financial wrongdoing, but the community is suspicious and deserves answers.
