The Challenge

Drug trials, especially for biotechs can be challenging. You might not have enough know-how or assets to run efficient trials. And bigger CROs might not give you the priority that you deserve. To top it all, you want to execute the trial in a cost-effective manner.

A CRO designed for biotechs

  • Cost-effective trial execution leveraging onshore-offshore model, and Bangalore (India) location - potential for 40%-60% savings
  • Accelerated execution and seamless Scaling
  • Capabilities include Project Management, Study Setup, proprietary CRF Designer tool, Data Management & Statistical Analysis, Trial Management & Monitoring

Project management to keep your trial on track

  • Map out the trial timelines from the first patient in to database lock
  • Up to date on trial progress with a dedicated project manager
  • Real-time trial tracking and addressing trial issues as they happen with constant communication between stakeholders
  • Cost management to keep the trial on budget

Study setup. Protocol design, CRF design, and Study Build

  • We can help in proof-reading the protocol and making sure that it is programmable
  • We have templates that can get you started with CRF design in an efficient manner. We can also make sure that it is CDISC-compliant
  • Once CRFs are finalized, we can build up your study in a 2-3 week time frame (depending on the complexity of the study)
  • Use our proprietary CRF Designer tool to collaboratively design and finalize the CRF’s in accelerated fashion

Effortlessly design your study with our propreitary CRF Designer

  • With drag-and-drop functionality, it's easy enough for a project physician to design the CRFs!
  • Start off the trial right with CDISC-compliant CRFs
  • Share, collaborate, and finalize the CRFs
  • Share read-only versions of CRFs with the database programmer and trial sites.
  • Use the portal as a training tool for the CRAs and trial sites

Data management and Statistical analysis

  • This is the core of what we do, our goal is to get you submission-ready data from day one
  • We are EDC agnostic, we support all popular EDC systems (Medidata and Oracle Inform, etc)
  • We will set timelines for your project and stick to them - protocol finalization to first patient in, data cleaning metrics for sites, and finally last patient into database lock - we will map all these out at the trial start
  • Real-time dashboard, periodic data cuts/analysis, and final database lock. All follow quality metrics set forth at the trial start

Clinical Trial Management and Monitoring

  • Remotely monitor trial data, and resolve data issues in a timely manner
  • Train the sites on the study, and keep their training up to date
  • Troubleshoot site issues and collect data seamlessly
  • Keep an open line of communication with the sites and resolve problems before they happen
