2015 Client Appreciation Party

We had a wonderful time at this year’s client appreciation cocktail party, which took place on the 4th of November at Palo Alto’s University Club. Some 120 guests enjoyed wine, nibbles (the miniature street tacos were a favorite), and fun party games. Top prize winners took home a Fitbit and two Caran d’Ache pens.

Thank you to everyone who attended and to all the partners who continue to help Idem grow!

The eConsent Explosion

Following the release earlier this year of the FDA’s draft guidance on the use of electronic informed consent in clinical investigations, several of our clients are actively working to improve the patient recruitment process for clinical trials. Some are transitioning to an eConsent process. Others are streamlining the ways that potential participants receive recruitment information.

Idem is excited to attend this month’s ClinPulse panel, which is focused on:
• How will eConsent affect the patient experience?
• How will it streamline clinical trials?
• What will become best practices?
• What regulatory requirements are in place or coming down the pike?

We hope to see you there!
