ABSTRACT

A technically strong team defines the identity of any functional service provider in the clinical programming arena. However measuring this strength is a rather tall order and hence elusive. The number of years of experience has become the sole indicator of quality even if as a fallback. And in that, companies tend to sometimes settle on numbers like 3 or 5. In emerging markets like India, where clinical research is still in its nascent state, this poses a challenge since clinical trial programming is not yet a widely known field and hence availability of experienced resource is limited. The challenge is to provide the same quality provided by experienced programmers with available resources. This paper will discuss a few methods that have been effectively used to bridge the gap between expectations and availability to provide high quality deliverables with the available programming pool.
