In our last article with Medrio, we discussed how being first to the pharmaceutical market is essential, as first-movers usually acquire significantly greater market share. That’s why it’s important to work with a contract research organization (CRO) that guarantees fast timelines and simultaneously mitigates the risk of errors. When deadlines are met and things proceed quickly and accurately, there’s a clear competitive advantage (something that can be difficult to obtain in this industry). For these reasons, you should choose a CRO that seamlessly integrates a clinical trial software, such as Medrio, to meet deadlines quickly while also fitting your budget.  For proof, look no further than the PharPoint Research and Medrio team.

At PharPoint Research, we’re focused on getting clients to market efficiently by providing high-quality clinical trial management services. Since 2010, PharPoint Research has been using Medrio as our preferred system for Phase I and II electronic data capture (EDC) because of Medrio’s smooth clinical site integration, affordable price, and fast timelines. These qualities, combined with it’s user-friendly and intuitive interface, make Medrio’s EDC one of the best tools in our shed.

PharPoint’s clinical staff agrees that Medrio is user friendly. Our director of clinical operations delved into more detail:

“Medrio’s design facilitates easy adoption by sites who are new to EDC studies or are migrating from another system. Navigation is intuitive and the different data views help sites understand how data is being processed. Medrio’s home page status displays allow sites to view outstanding queries or easily pinpoint which forms are ready for the Private Investigator’s signature.”

Survey Says: PharPoint and Medrio Work Great Together

Recently, PharPoint and Medrio sent a survey to clinical sites and data managers that examined how PharPoint’s experience, combined with Medrio’s user friendly software, is leading to efficient timelines and happy repeat customers. Most of those surveyedGraphs agreed that Medrio is intuitive and has fast startup times.

Those surveyed came from a wide variety of ages between 20 and 65, most of whom have been using Medrio for under one year.   When asked to describe the best aspects of Medrio, survey participants most often replied that it is easy to use, easy to learn, and user friendly.

The data demonstrates how successful the partnership between PharPoint Research and Medrio has been for Phase I and II studies. By being an accredited Medrio partner, PharPoint is able to build databases in house, which contributes to our fast timelines by cutting down on study database startup times.  There is no clunky software, and there is no need to hire a programmer for the software setup. This, along with our clinical experience and flexibility as a CRO, leads to faster timelines and repeat business.

How PharPoint and Medrio Achieve Phase I Success

Electronic Data CaptureAt PharPoint Research, we set ourselves apart from the competition by consistently meeting tight deadlines for our customers. Several years ago, we faced the challenge of finding an affordable, high-caliber electronic data capture (EDC) solution for our early phase research. After reviewing many systems, PharPoint chose Medrio as their EDC provider for Phase I studies. Nearly five years and numerous studies later, we continue to use Medrio because of their rapid study start up and responsive customer service.

PharPoint’s Phase I Success

It is widely recognized within the pharmaceutical and medical device industries that there is a distinct competitive advantage that comes with being first to market. Every month of lead time ahead of a competitor is meaningful, as first-movers usually acquire significantly greater market share in the long run. As such, clinical research sponsors seek to expedite the clinical trial process as much as possible, and they look for contract research organizations (CROs) that can complete studies rapidly while maintaining accuracy.

At PharPoint, a North Carolina based CRO, we set ourself apart from the competition by consistently meeting tight deadlines for its customers. Handling studies across all phases and therapeutic areas, PharPoint utilizes Medrio to support our rapid Phase I operations. Medrio’s simple, fast, and affordable electronic data capture (EDC) software meets strict regulatory standards and fits within limited Phase I budgets.

Working with Medrio

Several years ago, PharPoint faced the challenge of finding an affordable, high-caliber EDC solution for their early phase research. Custom-developed software and on premise data hosting were simply not an option. After reviewing many systems, PharPoint chose Medrio as their EDC provider for Phase I studies. Nearly five years and numerous studies later, PharPoint Research continues to use Medrio because of its rapid study start up and responsive customer service. “PharPoint consistently works with Medrio across Phase I studies because of their flexibility and talent for meeting deadlines on short notice,” says Moya Hawkins, Director of Data Management.

Intuitive Design, Outstanding Support

Cumbersome EDC software often results in slow and inaccurate data collection, which is why it comes as no surprise that most CROs rank intuitive design as a top concern when searching for the right EDC solution. Listening to the customer’s needs, Medrio has developed an easy to use EDC platform that does not require extensive training or technical expertise. Moya sees the difference: “Medrio’s detailed training program reduces the learning curve and ultimately saves time when onboarding new team members and site users. As a partner with Medrio, we also value the ability to design entry screens and custom edit checks to sponsor specifications.”

Medrio’s fluid learning transition is built on a deep understanding of our customers’ needs. They understand that many of their clients work beyond the typical 9 – 5, which is why their highly responsive customer success team, located at our headquarters in San Francisco, is available to help customers any day of the week. They have invested a great deal of company resources into their customer support infrastructure because they believe customer needs come first. Moya appreciates Medrio’s customer focus: “Medrio’s dedication to customer support allows us to finalize a contract and get a study partitioned in less than 24 hours. No other EDC company has been able to deliver the same turnaround time without loss of quality.”
