"As the clinical research community continues to commit to improving clinical trial operations, we're beginning to see how applying the best technology has to offer can benefit patient care and disease research," said Shree Kalluri, CEO and Founder at Forte. "When both standardization and modernization are applied, trial focus can be re-shifted to prioritize participants and on the research itself, versus spending an abundance of energy on operational frustrations. Lines of communication between sites and sponsors are also made more transparent and clearer, giving stakeholders the ability to track progress in near real-time. With Forte's collaborative-centric technology, site-and-sponsor communication becomes more productive, consistent, and participant- and research-focused."
"Forte and its Onsemble event have transformed the way this industry collaborates, improving patient care by focusing on the technology that organizes and powers clinical research science," said Tesheia Johnson, COO at Yale's Center for Clinical Investigation. "For us, it's about building and sustaining a community that can leverage a technology- and data-focused clinical research approach that will change lives."
New Platform Features In the Wednesday keynote, Kalluri shared Forte's 'inverting the focus' vision: shifting from single-trial-focused research to a site-wide approach for success. As part of Forte's commitment to be the best-in-class technology partner for clinical research, the company is unveiling several new platform features designed to support trusted data aggregation, exchange, and analytics, making the same information available for all stakeholders in order to improve site-and-sponsor collaboration:

"Networking with others in this specific space makes the Forte experience that much more rich and satisfying. Knowing what is possible with this system is invaluable, and getting that direction, with honest assessments of the challenges and successes with those who have already gone through the process, makes anything seem possible, and not as scary," said Sandra Johnson, OnCore Administrator at Medical College of Wisconsin. "Knowing I can reach out to hundreds of users all across the country who can help out with questions or challenges I'm facing, and know them from meeting them at these conferences, it's like I have a whole new giant team at my fingertips.
"Having attended numerous Onsemble conferences, these have really evolved over the years. With the leadership sessions and unbelievable willingness of institutions and leaders to share their initiatives, approaches, lessons learned for leveraging Forte products and services, this conference achieves the right balance of theory and practice that are often missing in other programs," said Beth Harper, Workforce Innovation Officer at the Association of Clinical Research Professionals. "Kudos to the Forte team and community for continuing to bring value to transforming clinical research!"
