Early Phase Clinical Trials Leader Unveil Their New Portal to Comprehensive Clinical Trials Data Management
Richmond Pharmacology today launched their clinical trials data management portal signalling the establishment of a new era in clinical trials data management at Richmond Pharmacology. Designed by Data Management professionals from the Pharmaceutical industry with the needs of the Pharmaceutical industry in mind.
“Outsourcing data management has become a practical necessity for many new and existing biotech and pharma companies aiming to operate in a cost and time efficient manner.”
Building on the success of Richmond Pharmacology Ltd. within the arena of Early Phase Clinical Trials, the company has made the decision to make their successful Clinical Trials Data Management Division accessible for those who are looking for a stand alone Data Management Provider.
Richmond Pharmacology Ltd have for many years undertaken data management and its associated services as part of the full service offering Richmond Pharmacology provides, as part of the Early Phase Clinical Trials Research conducted at their two hospital based Clinical Trails Centres.
As the only CRO to have received MHRA Standard and Supplementary Accreditation for two hospital based Clinical Trial Centre’s, Richmond Pharmacology has a track record and supporting accreditation to ensure peace of mind that sponsors are choosing a gold standard provider for their clinical trials needs, whether that be full service clinical trial conduct or stand alone data management, analysis and reporting.
The decision to make Data Management and its associated services a stand alone offering was taken based on increasing demand from within the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry for this service. As a result Richmond Pharmacology Ltd have grown their Data Management Division to incorporate experienced staff with a pharmaceutical background to ensure their offering is in line with client expectations. The division is led by Director of Data Management Kjell Pennert, who himself has over 20 years of experience in senior positions within the industry.
“Increasingly one hears of sponsors receiving a disjointed service and this is often due to the fact that one or several components of the data management service is outsourced to various countries, rather than being incorporated under one roof.”
Pennert joined Richmond Pharmacology Ltd. in July 2008 to develop the data management division of Richmond Pharmacology and ensure it is well placed to offer the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry what they want. Pennert stated “Outsourcing data management has become a practical necessity for many new and existing biotech and pharma companies aiming to operate in a cost and time efficient manner.”
He added, "Too often data management providers believe one size fits all. However this is not the case and the impact this belief may have on new drug development could be of huge cost and consequence to the emergence of new medicines.”
Pennert commented, “Treat each client big or small, like your number one priority and you cannot help but succeed in providing a first class service that lives up to the expectations of study and outsourcing managers.”
Pennert went on to say “Increasingly one hears of sponsors receiving a disjointed service and this is often due to the fact that one or several components of the data management service is outsourced to various countries, rather than being incorporated under one roof.” “Outsourcing is essential yet one must be mindful that saving a few dollars here and there by placing work in different countries could end up costing millions of dollars in the long run.”
At RPLDataManagement, study and outsourcing managers will find a service that fits their needs. As you would expect of any good Data Management provider, RPLDataManagement offer a full service offering that can be adapted to individual needs. A bespoke service no matter the size of the workload, nor the phase of IMP’s development, coupled with RPLDataManagement “all under one roof” approach ensure a service unrivalled by other providers.
Pennert stated “The focal point of our business is to simplify the provision of data management services by providing a cost-effective one-stop solution for the biotech and pharmaceutical industry, both small and large to maintain a current, competitive and cutting edge Data Management Platform."
This new service will be launched to coincide with RPLDataManagement’s attendance at the ACDM Annual Conference 2009 “Mapping the Future”, held at Whittlebury Hall Hotel, Northamptonshire, UK on 9-10 March.
