This initiative is designed to increase the chances for clinical trial volunteers to find studies for which they may qualify through a collaboration of pharma companies and CROs. More than 20 major biopharmaceutical companies and CROs have been working toward participation in the Referral Plus initiative where each company has agreed to share its enrolling studies with each other and refer participants who disqualify from their own studies to other participating member studies using an automated geo-therapeutic matching algorithm. “We know only 5% of participants who respond to a recruitment ad will enroll into the study they applied to for a number of reasons, including geography, inclusion/exclusion restrictions, medications, etc.,” says Lisa LaLuna, senior VP at ePharmaSolutions. “Through the geo-therapeutic matching algorithm, we can automatically match the 95% of participants who disqualified for one study into other studies they might qualify for and be interested in.” { For more information, visit ­ Cegedim Delivers an Integrated Cloud Solution Cegedim Relationship Management has released a new integrated solution in partnership with Concur.

Revised industry association codes, coupled with more stringent transparency laws across the world, have caused life-sciences companies to increasingly monitor and disclose their financial relationships with their individual stakeholders. Since the reporting evolves at a nominative level, identifying each covered recipient is critical.

The data management and reporting service collects all expenditure transactions, and links them to a single customer view. AggregateSpend360 then generates reports to satisfy unique compliance requirements through pre-built templates according to each regulation. { For more information, visit ­ MedNet Solutions has introduced the latest version of iMedNet EDC, which provides a flexible, intuitive, and affordable cloud-based eClinical platform ideally suited to sponsors and CROs.
