Designed to enable biopharmaceutical sponsors and CROs to optimise their use of clinical technology, Good Products’ new consulting division offers remote and on-site expertise throughout North America and Europe.

Implementing and managing clinical technology can pose a variety of commercial and operational challenges for sponsors and CROs.

These eClinical solutions include EDC, IVRS/IWRS, CTMS, ePRO, document management and digital signature solutions, as well as newly developed technologies including patient communication using cell phones.

eClinical technology experts in North America and Europe offer independent advice as to which solutions will work within companies’ individual structures and how technology should be implemented to increase efficiency and effectiveness within clinical research programmes. Additionally, Good Products offers guidance on deploying new technologies to complement existing workflows, and can advise on changing business strategy and working practices to increase the value of new and existing technologies.

Benefitting from experienced consultants, operating companies and CROs can gain practical advice on areas such as data integration, optimising workflows, developing company-wide standards, auditing and reporting on clinical technology, choosing best-fit solutions and working with external vendors. The consulting division also offers assistance in formulating sales and marketing campaigns for clinical technology vendors looking to gain the edge in promoting their software and services.
