Effectively Integrate Financial Forecasts with Study Performance to Improve Trial Timelines

May 2-3, 2018
  • Philadelphia, PA

Join us this May at CBI’s 10th Annual Clinical Trial Budgeting & Forecasting conference to identify solutions and best practices for ensuring accurate and effective budgeting, forecasting and management of clinical trials.

With increased pressure on earnings, financial predictability and accurate reporting, along with the shrinking tolerance for variance between forecasted and actual budget, it is more important than ever that your organization utilizes predictive methodologies to reduce amendments, increase forecast accuracy and improve trial timelines.

Collaborate with your trial counterparts to bridge the gap between clinical finance, operations and project management and address each player’s role in managing top variance causes including outsourcing, delays, trial complexity, unexpected events, globalization and more.

Featured Topics Include:

  • Maintain forecast models by monitoring costs, aligning team roles and responsibilities
  • Leverage forecasting tools to recalculate payments and budget reconciliation
  • Explore accrual methodologies that different bio/pharma companies use for accruals
  • Gain real-world insight on how companies have overcome challenges of reforecasting, system implementation and site negotiations
  • Discover common misconceptions and realities of clinical site budgets and contracts to gain a deeper understanding of roadblocks and challenges
  • Consider methods above and beyond KPIs to uncover underlying issues with Sponsor/CRO relationship
  • Discuss various systems used by finance and operations teams and discover best practices for sharing data across multiple systems

Previous Attendee Acclaim:

The conference offers a chance to hear about pharma finance from all levels. The sessions range from creating accruals to high level management of finance departments.

Just the right level of financial knowledge shared for a clinical operations professional. I felt like I was “seeing behind the curtain” for forecasting, budgets and accruals.
