Why The Shared Investigator Platform (SIP) Was Created

This is the second post in a series on the TransCelerate Shared Investigator Platform (SIP). For background information on TransCelerate, see the initial post in the series.

Very few doctors serve as clinical investigators (approximately 3%), which means many investigators work with multiple sponsor organizations. Each sponsor organization has its own site-facing IT systems and business processes, meaning that these investigators need to remember which URLs, login credentials, and processes to use for which sponsor/study – on top of their patient interactions and other administrative duties.

Adding another level of complexity, any one investigator can easily be working on multiple studies for a single sponsor, and each of those studies might use a different combination of site-facing systems and processes, depending on how long they have been running and whether they are being managed by the sponsor or a contract research organization (CRO).

The Sites Subcommittee of TransCelerate decided to address the burden of clinical trial administration placed on site investigators by creating the SIP.
