The data gathered at investigative sites during clinical trials is the backbone of the pharmaceutical and medical device development process. Without it, assessing the efficacy and safety of therapies would simply be impossible. Whether they are linked to a medical practice, part of an academic medical center (AMC), or operate independently, investigative sites are an important resource.
Managing the investigator payment is one of the most challenging aspects of running a clinical trial. Major factors considered by pharmaceutical and biotech companies for investigator payments are therapeutic area of interest, duration of the trial, clinical phase, and patient enrollment.
