REPORT DEFINITIONS

  • Principal Investigator: These physicians assume ultimate responsibility for a clinical trial at the designated investigator site. In addition to performing and overseeing the medical interventions detailed within the trial protocol, principal investigators' responsibilities include, but are not limited to, patient inclusion/exclusion assessments, adverse event reviews and serious adverse event reporting.
  • Supporting Investigator: These physicians operate under the supervision of the principal investigator at each trial site. Supporting investigators may perform any, or all, of the medical interventions detailed within the trial protocol.
  • Compensation Limit: A self-imposed, annual limit placed on the amount of money that a sponsor can compensate a physician or investigator

KEY QUESTIONS THIS REPORT ANSWERS

Promote Transparency by Building an Accurate Investigator FMV Calculation

  • How do life science companies calculate FMV despite lack of formal regulatory guidance?
  • While every trial's calculation process is unique, what are the three common elements that will lead to true, accurate investigator FMV and compensation?
  • Which factors do most surveyed companies consider when determining investigator compensation, and why?
  • What criteria do companies use to select the right investigators and sites? How should they balance investigators' professional credentials and clinical experience in the decision-making process?
  • How can companies clearly outline trial responsibilities and increase accountability within trial teams?
  • How can companies prepare for trial delays when using academic institutions?
  • During the feasibility stage, what questions should sponsors ask sites to ensure that they receive an accurate picture of site capabilities?

Establish an Investigator Payment Schedule and Keep Trials on Track

  • How much are principal investigators and supporting investigators paid per visit, on average? How do these rates change depending on therapeutic area?
  • What are the benefits of a payment structure and milestone payments?
  • Which payment schedule is optimal for sponsors and investigators?
  • How much should companies expect to budget for direct costs throughout product development? (e.g., IRB fees, patient recruitment, testing and lab fees, pharmacy set-up)?

Organize a Successful Investigator Meeting Within Budget

  • What are companies' primary goals for an investigator meeting?
  • What key factors should companies consider to organize a successful investigator meeting?
  • How can companies balance online technologies and traditional approaches to boost investigator meeting attendance and involvement?
  • What strategies can companies use to accurately budget for investigator meetings and avoid surprises?
  • How should companies effectively allocate their investigator meeting budgets to cover specific costs (e.g., food, lodging and transportation)?

Table of Contents

CHAPTER BENEFITS AND METRICS BREAKDOWN

Chapter 1: Calculating Clinical Investigator Fair-Market Value (Author: Ryan)

The exact formula a company uses to calculate investigator FMV is not as important as establishing a process in the first place. This chapter offers benchmarks on the most critical factors to consider while calculating FMV calculation and determining investigator compensation. This chapter also shows benchmarks for compensation limits and average payments for principal investigators and supporting investigators in eight common therapeutic areas: cardiovascular, CNS and neurology, diabetes, gastroenterology, endocrinology, infectious disease, oncology and urology.

Chapter Benefits

  • Establish a process to calculate FMV that fits company needs.
  • Consider subscription services to fill in budget estimates.
  • Document historic physician payments to build a cost database.
  • Consult Medicare procedure reimbursement rates, then add overhead costs.
  • Customize physician payments based on individual office visits.
  • Weigh investigator experience and certifications when assessing capabilities.
  • Plan adequately for delays when using academic institutions.
  • Establish clear accountability by outlining PI and staff responsibilities.

Chapter Data

17 charts detailing how life science companies calculate investigator fair-market value (FMV). The chapter contains process diagrams for establishing an FMV process, as well as benchmarks for clinical trials across a number of key therapeutic areas.

  • Diagram showing elements of a standard investigator FMV calculation
  • Percentage of companies considering specific factors to determine investigator compensation (US, Europe, Asia)
  • Infographic showing how to customize trial budgets using cost benchmarks
  • Diagram showing FMV calculation process at a large medical device company
  • Average investigator compensation for trials in these nine therapeutic areas:
    • Arthritis
    • Cardiovascular
    • CNS and neurology
    • Diabetes
    • Endocrinology and metabolic disease
    • Gastroenterology
    • Infectious disease
    • Oncology
    • Urology
  • Annual compensation limits for principal investigators

Chapter 2: Structuring Clinical Investigator Contracts and Pass-Through Costs (Author: Ryan)

This chapter focuses on payment structures and processes surrounding clinical investigator compensation. It explores popular strategies and tactics used to pay investigators as well as the different ways companies contract with investigators. The chapter also examines common milestone payments, the number of payments made to clinical investigators and withholding rates. Finally, Chapter 2 provides ranges and averages of direct costs that investigators often pass through to sponsors.

Chapter Benefits

  • Pay per patient visit to capture the cost of procedures and physicians' time.
  • Establish compensation limits to ensure physicians are paid fair-market value.
  • Use milestone payments to track trial progress and manage expectations.
  • Build accurate budgets by planning for direct costs.

Chapter 3: Planning and Building Budgets for Investigator Meetings (Author: Natalie)

This chapter delves into the critical aspects necessary for focused and engaging investigator meetings. To guide companies through these recommendations, this chapter presents investigator meeting budgets by both trial phase and reimbursed items. Interviewed executives offer ways to build budgets and to simplify reimbursement processes. These meetings are an opportunity for companies to train and engage physicians before a clinical trial begins. To avoid regulatory censure, companies should ensure that accommodations for these meetings are modest, and the meetings themselves driven by scientific discussions. To prepare, event planners should build itemized budgets by calculating the cost per attendee. As a result, the number of participants will largely influence meeting budgets.

Chapter Benefits

  • Use cost per attendee metrics to build precise budgets.
  • Review key factors - geography, timing and culture - to drive attendance.
  • Project phase impact of attendance on travel, lodging and food budgets.
  • Prioritize meeting convenience for attendees.
  • Weigh pros and cons of online meetings.

Chapter Data

21 charts detailing investigator meeting costs and budgets.

  • Average number of investigator meeting attendees (by company and by phase)
  • Percentage of companies reimbursing investigators for meeting costs, by item
  • Average total budget for investigator meetings (by phase and by company)
  • Average investigator meeting cost per attendee (by phase and by company)
  • Investigator meeting budget allocation (by percentage), by cost item
  • Average cost per item, by phase
