With a 92% business repeat rate, PharPoint Research has an excellent reputation in effectively managing and staffing clinical trials. One of the areas that has made us unique as a contract research organization (CRO) is our ability to identify and focus on the areas where we are truly exceptional, and partner with other trusted clinical trial service providers to perform services outside our core expertise.
This self-aware approach to staffing clinical trials has allowed PharPoint Research to grow into a dynamic and strategically focused full-service CRO that excels at providing the following clinical services:
Focusing on these core competencies has produced a model of efficiency that benefits any organization. Specifically, this model brings value to sponsors by providing a tailored team, mitigating the risk of unexpected delays, and lowering cost.
Different than your average CRO
PharPoint considers every sponsor’s needs to be unique and deserving of personalized attention. With extensive, global experience in all phases of clinical development, including patient registries and program strategic consulting, we offer sponsors a wide range of therapeutic area expertise. Our devotion to client satisfaction is demonstrated by our holistic and responsive management of each clinical trial, tailoring our team as the needs of the sponsor and the study evolve.
PharPoint begins new relationships by listening to a sponsor’s likes and dislikes from studies previously run by other CROs. This allows PharPoint to match our project managers with the sponsor’s preferences and offer suggestions on how we can incorporate PharPoint best practices to eliminate issues that occurred with previous CROs.
The most frequent complaint we hear is in regards to the previous CRO’s resource management strategy for assigning “experts” to a particular study.
Sponsors often express how larger CROs attempt to only use in-house personnel to deliver all of the services required to support their clinical development rather than building their service offering around the actual in-house expertise. This approach leads to service providers that are “masters of none”.
PharPoint’s best-of-class team building approach to staffing clinical trials provides sponsors with a team of veteran personnel, each of whom are accomplished in their field and possess a wealth of experience working in our sponsor’s therapeutic area of research.
PharPoint Research drastically reduces delays that may otherwise impact a sponsors ability to complete their trials on time by working through partnerships to provide services outside of our core service offerings.
As a part of our partner vetting process we ensure that our partners have a similar business philosophy and approach to excellent client service, and are properly resourced to manage unexpected study challenges that could otherwise adversely impact study timelines.
Our deep bench of experienced personnel and partners allows PharPoint Research to deliver scalable studies to meet evolving requirements, including potential spikes in workload requirements. Over the years we have worked with our established vendors/partners on many studies, and have excellent working relationships that can handle the needs of any size trial. This provides time savings without loss of quality or expertise.
PharPoint Research reduces sponsors’ costs by working with our partners to create a best in class team of experts without the administrative overhead. PharPoint Research only pays for the hours used to support a particular study, allowing for the efficient use of limited resources and reduction of life cycle costs. These reduced costs are passed through to sponsors without a premium. This is one of the many reasons why PharPoint’s quotes for clinical studies are lower than the average CRO.
