What Do You #InsistOn From Your CRO? We Asked Attendees At DIA

What Do You #InsistOn From Your CRO? We Asked Attendees At DIA
28 June 2017

When it comes to working with a CRO, what do you insist on?  With the potential to help sponsors take new drugs and devices to market, we think it is an important question to ask. So we chose the hashtag #InsistOn as a conversation-starter and as our booth theme at DIA 2017, June 18-22 in Chicago.

What better time to ask drug and device developers what they consider most important when working with a CRO than at DIA, drawing 8,000 professionals in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device communities from more than 50 countries around the globe?

From customer focus to expert guidance, greater flexibility, milestones met, promises kept and, our own philosophy of ‘Shared Work, Shared Vision’, we asked attendees to rank in order of importance what they #InsistOn from a CRO partner. Perhaps not surprisingly, all of these attributes ranked high. However, the highest ranked were expert guidance and customer focus (averaging 4.8 and 4.7 on a scale of 1-6, with 6 the highest), followed by milestones met (4.6); greater flexibility (4.5); shared work, shared vision (4.5) and promises kept (4.4).

With three decades of experience directing Phase I – IV clinical development programs for emerging and small-to-mid-sized drug and device developers, across 3,700+ projects in multiple therapeutic areas, we have always held Synteract to the highest standards in collaborating with sponsors, offering expert guidance and insights to help propel clinical trials forward. Dedicated to bringing new treatments to market and working closely with our clients, we are committed to forming effective partnerships, sharing expertise and ensuring good communications to help bring tomorrow’s treatments to patients who need them, today.

These responses were refreshing to hear! What do you consider most important in working with a CRO? We would be curious to know.
