Cross Company Issue Tracking - the case for issue synchronization
You are using Jira on a day to day basis to manage your operations. Things are neatly organized. But what happens when you have to work with your partners, customers or subcontractors? You need to revert to phone or email to exchange information. Maybe you can integrate your systems such that issues raised in one Jira can be resolved in the next.
Francis Martens (from iDalko) will present some of the challenges and opportunities issue synchronization bring to the table.
Jira for Complex Clinical Trial - WU Med School - Preview Summit Presentation!!!
Managing a clinical drug trial is a complicated endeavor, filled with complex recording, scheduling and reporting requirements. The effort becomes more convoluted when the trial involves multiple drugs from multiple manufacturers. Though tools and methodologies are readily available for single drug trials, approaches to multi-drug trials are generally a cobbling together of tools and methodologies that may not be optimal.
Fortunately Jira is an ideal tool for managing more complex clinical trials. In this presentation, we will show how Jira was tailored to track the full path of a multi-year, multi-drug clinical trial. Leveraging Jira workflows and automation, a solution was crafted to track all stages of the trial, handle issue and schedule creation based on required protocols, and provide traceability.
Come on out to hear Jessi Smith, a WUMED Senior Clinical Research Coordinator and Michael March, Head of Atlassian Services at Isos Technology present “Managing a Dual Drug Clinical Trial with Jira”.
