Budget Development and negotiation for clinical research trials is too often a tedious barrage of back and forth redlining, frustrating calls and emails, and confusing payment terms. In this session, the experts at PFS Clinical and PharmaSeek will share their budgeting secrets, break down the process, review effective and efficient negotiation, and demonstrate the common pitfalls through the use of case studies and real-life examples. The use of coverage analysis, its effect on budget development, and consequences of inappropriate billing will also be discussed.

The benefits to your site for implementing a thorough Budget Development process include:

  • Higher budgets for clinical trials
  • Increased positive revenue flow 
  • Avoiding common money pitfalls
  • Quicker turn-around times for budget and contract finalization
  • Audit protection in the form of proper coverage documentation to avoid double-billing
