DEERFIELD, Ill.—Advanced Clinical, a clinical development organization providing contract research, functional service provider, strategic resourcing and quality and validation services, announced in late June that it has joined Align Clinical CRO, a new industry standards group dedicated to making it easier for sponsors and contract research organizations to work together during clinical trials.
“Align Clinical CRO’s mission is directly in line with our goal of delivering a better clinical experience to sponsors. As a member of this powerful industry collaboration, we will help develop and drive new technology standards that will improve operational delivery of clinical trials,” said Julie Ross, president of Advanced Clinical.
Align Clinical CRO aims to develop and support the adoption of open technology standards that make it easier for industry sponsors and CROs to collaborate and execute clinical trials. Founded by Veeva Systems and leading CROs, the group’s first standard for operational data exchange will define the data and structure that technology companies can implement in order to consistently and easily exchange clinical trial data between CROs and sponsors. With more efficient CRO-sponsor data exchange, these standards will reduce clinical trial start up time and operational costs while improving data integrity and service delivery.
The Operational Data Exchange Standard is expected to be published for public review and input later this year.
