Medidata CRO Contractor®
Optimize Your CRO Relationships
Medidata CRO Contractor® provides clinical research sponsors the benchmarking data and analysis tools to optimize the critical relationship with their Contract Research Organization (CRO).
CROs are essential partners to pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device and diagnostic companies who rely on outside expertise in one, several or all of their clinical research functions. The basis of an excellent partnership starts with the right match between sponsor expectations and CRO resources, and is strengthened through effective working relationships.
Only Medidata CRO Contractor accesses CROCAS®, the industry database of thousands of negotiated outsourcing arrangements, putting data-driven analytic tools in the hands of research sponsors to optimally plan, budget and manage CRO contracts. By strengthening the information base for interactions, sponsors can develop and maintain a relationship that best supports the clinical research program, reduces study problems, unexpected management issues and unforeseen costs. Use of CRO Contractor can lead to critical time and cost efficiencies for the clinical development program—whether the sponsor is working with CROs for the first time or is a long-time CRO collaborator. Medidata CRO Contractor is the latest innovation in collaborative clinical trial budgeting developed from the original CROCAS CRO benchmarking product.
