PharmaSeek 2018 Highlights
PharmaSeek continues to be a leader in our industry as a resource for new study opportunities for sites. This past year has also afforded us an opportunity to produce extensions of our knowledge base in the form of routine blog posts to help educate others in the industry. We still strive to be among the best at expediting study start times and we were able to keep that mission alive by creating new ways to accomplish this. We have seen the development of several new service lines that can help ease the responsibilities of our clients and take some of the day-to-day burdens off their shoulders. This expansion in services has us very excited about the year to come.
We feel that knowledge-sharing and education are an important part of what we do, and blogging is a great vehicle that allows us to do that. More importantly though, we hope it gives you, our readers, a better idea of who we are and what we’re passionate about. If there are any topics you would like us to cover, we would love to hear from you!
Setting contract terms that can benefit all parties that are involved will always be an oscillating process; both sides want to win. However, there can be points in negotiations when terms are introduced that your organization must stand firmly against. This blog helps give insight on contract negotiations by outlining what contract terms should be non-negotiable to any given organization. From contradictory terms to unequitable relationships, this blog is helpful because it points out different areas that can impact an agreement’s efficacy.
Small sponsor operating budgets typically play a part in site selection becoming a more competitive practice. Turning your site into a more desirable one is essential today, as the site selection process becomes more competitive. This blog is essential because it gives concrete tips on how sites can improve their feasibility practices and stand out amongst other sites.
New Service Lines
PharmaSeek has successfully launched a handful of new service offerings in 2018 including (but not limited to): contract review and negotiation, budget review and negotiation, feasibility and pipeline management, along with financial services, including PS Pays. PharmaSeek’s goal for 2018 was to expand its service offering for sites to allow the site staff to focus on patient care instead of the administrative functions of clinical trials. Additionally, PharmaSeek has launched a new service for sponsors, called Protocol Cost Savings Analysis. In a nutshell, this service offering allows for sponsors to experience a significant reduction in research and development expenses by allowing for efficiencies to be had during protocol development. All these services help accomplish our end goal of streamlining the administrative elements of clinical research sites and sponsors, so we are excited to be able to offer these new additions to our clients.
Looking forward to 2019
In 2019, we are excited to celebrate our 25th year in business. As we approach this milestone, we aim to expand and to educate our clients about the value of our service offerings, all while remaining committed to our original service offering: study identification for sites. We are excited to expand our company vision while continuing along our path of streamlining tasks for sponsors and sites.
