PPD is optimizing research with decentralized strategies using PPD® Digital, our solution to growing global digitalization and virtual trial requirements. We offer flexible trial solutions across the digital spectrum to increase patient access and improve the patient experience, resulting in time efficiencies and data quality enhancements. Our solutions fit the trial to the patient, rather than the patient to the trial.
The DCT solutions manager is responsible for executing the site and patient strategies on for decentralized and/or digitally enabled trials. In this role, you will assist with the development of the study management plan, work cross-functionally with internal project teams and external vendors, and serve as primary project contact with virtual sites. As solutions manager, you will oversee all site and digital patient documentation, assist with helpdesk setup and device management for the trial, identify quality issues within the study and participate in proposal development.
The digital implementation manager is responsible for the technical and operational aspects of the electronic clinical outcomes assessments (eCOA) and digital enablement (DE) projects, to achieve the successful completion of eClinical software builds for our clients. In this role, you will serve as the liaison between the client and PPD to facilitate the flow of information and provide the client with project updates. You will coordinate activities of all PPD functional departments (data management, clinical programmers, testers, global clinical supplies, etc.) and external vendors (translation, technology, copyright holders, etc.) involved in the project. There are multiple levels of this manager role, including senior and principal levels for more experienced staff.
The digital project specialist functions as a junior project manager (PM) on digitally enabled trials. In this role, you will support the project during implementation by managing internal resources, partners (eClinical technology) and external vendors (translation, instrument copyright holders). As the project specialist, you will coordinate training needs and identify legal, financial and operational risks in accordance with company and client considerations. This role allows you the opportunity to develop skills to move into a digital implementation manager role.
The digital programmer works directly with project team leaders on programming activities relevant to digitally enabled trials. In this role, you are responsible for designing and building digital solutions such as eCOA, Televisit, eConsent, remote consent, and patient engagement. Acting as a subject matter expert, you will customize materials for each trial as outlined by the study plan. You will research and leverage resources to resolve study issues and manage increasingly complex tasks through the development and application of new knowledge and technology.
The digital testing engineer functions as subject matter expert for testing methodologies required for digitally enabled trials. In this role, you will attend design meetings to understand technology requirements and provide analysis on the testing approach and content for the technology being deployed on the project. You will lead test planning, documentation, test execution, error reporting, analysis and error verification, in addition to regression testing and end-user training and documentation.
