Full-Service Site Networks Maximize Efficiency and Precision in Clinical Trials

Site selection is becoming increasingly challenging – sites are saturated with studies, clinics are asked to divide their time between standard patient care and clinical trial responsibilities, and study protocols are ever-more complex. Finding and selecting sites again and again, for each new study, sacrifices your valuable resources. Using a full-service site network saves time and maximizes efficiency, allowing your team to focus on what matters most: patient care and highest-quality data. However, based on my experience, only some full-service site networks offer the full suite of services that make a real difference.

Key Factors of an Excellent Site Network

Optimal full-service site networks offer the highest level of efficiency and accuracy for your clinical trials in a number of ways; I highly recommend considering these factors when selecting a site network to partner with. First, consistent, reliable data collection is achieved through an extensive, standardized training program and dedicated patient files, meaning reduced entry errors and missing data for your study. Further, dedicated quality control personnel ensure thorough trial oversight and clean, quality data. In addition, patient recruitment and retention tools customized for each study reduce delays. Project managers with local regulatory knowledge provide expertise and extend productiveness.

Communication and Teamwork Provide an Edge

At Bioclinica, we think of our site network like a close-knit community. We look forward to our regular meetings, when we get a chance to connect. This consistent, face-to-face communication means that we continually learn from one another and solve problems across sites. This familiarity and collaboration result in issues being addressed immediately and effectively.

Research as the Focus

Also, look for a dedicated, full-service site network that concentrates exclusively on research, unlike “broker” services that rely on sites that are often also engaged in regular clinical care. Staff members in dedicated site networks are experts at clinical research and allocated specifically to conducting research, their total focus. Because they do not need to divide their time between research and daily clinical activities, sites can optimize the daily clinic flow. Staff members also are frequently better able to engage with patients owing to their understanding of specific patient needs during clinical research, providing superior patient care.

Access Across Continents

Clinical trials today need global reach: access to sites in multiple countries and specific patient populations. Following the progress of a seasonal illness like the flu, for example, requires sites on multiple continents as well as pinpoint locations across the map. With a geographic spread throughout the United States, Europe, Latin America, and Asia, ours is the most diverse global site network available. For more than 25 years, Bioclinica Research Network has been a global connection for clinical trials, with databases and online communities around the world comprising more than 1.4 million potential patients.

Streamlined Process. Superior Results.

Fundamentally, site networks streamline and simplify the process of clinical trials, ensuring that your valuable effort is not duplicated. Site networks provide a single point of contact, clear communications, and quicker site identification. At Bioclinica, we go beyond the basics with a laser focus on research as well as vetted global site networks across four continents. We use standardized processes and controls from study start to database lock, which can provide a significant contribution to your program’s success.
