The Financial Summary Dashboard provides an overview of Budget, Actual Expenditures and Forecasted Expenditures on monthly, quarterly and yearly bases around different events or activities – like equipment for site setup, subject screening and subject visits during the trial. Summary cards provide an at-a-glance view of the planned budget, actual expenditure and forecasted expenditure for the study of interest being across the selected countries and sites.

Spend Analysis Dashboard

The Spend Analysis Dashboard is used to evaluate trends in expenditure for different categories like Site Standard Cost and Patient Cost. It also displays the expenditures on sites of interest and the expenditures incurred within each category at that site. This is a stack chart which shows the percentage of expenditure incurred in each category on a monthly, quarterly and yearly basis. The analytic also shows the average cost per subject with a line chart.

Site Summary Dashboard

The Site Summary Dashboard indicates how the site of interest is performing with respect to some (configurable) key metrics. It also shows how the site is performing with respect to the country average for each of the defined metrics. The Site Summary Dashboard is comprised of two distinct components. The first component show the basic details of the site (address, CRA name, activation date, etc.). This is followed by the Site Summary Overview which is a table displaying the site performance and country average against the list of key metrics.
