In this episode, we tackle another important aspect of clinical research finance, specifically, coverage analysis for US based clinical trials.
At the beginning of any clinical trial, coverage analysis is generally required.
The process of performing coverage analysis can be rather overwhelming for someone performing this activity for the first time or not as frequently.
To get us introduced to the concept of coverage analysis and what it entails, I invited Kelly Willenberg to the show.

Prior to starting her firm in 2009, Kelly worked for over 12 years at Vanderbilt University Medical Center where she established the enterprise wide billing compliance program and served as the first Director of Billing Compliance.
She also served as the Director of the Clinical Trials Office for the Cancer Center managing a Community Oncology Research Program.
