Systematic Progress Management

EP-SOGO manages projects by assigning its staff responsible for promoting or managing the enrollment progress in each branch. Before starting clinical trials, EP-SOGO checks and reviews the enrollment plans devised by CRCs responsible for the sites (clinical trial enrollment plan). During the enrollment period, EP-SOGO leverages its in-house system to identify candid ate information or tasks in a timely manner to check the progress.
In addition to the day-to-day enrollment management, EP-SOGO takes the most suitable measures whenever necessary to fasten the enrollment.
When supporting multiple clinical sites, EP-SOGO regards the clinical trial as a critical project, and a project leader from each branch cooperates with support staff of the headquarters who has extensive CRC experience to implement "Study Start-up", "Subject Enrollment", and "Close-out Management" of the trial.
