Contract Research Organization

Drive efficient clinical trials and efficiencies in research with Microsoft Dynamics 365

Contract Research Organization: Overview and challenges

Contract Research Organizations (CROs) offer clinical trials and other research support services to their sponsoring organizations – pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, government institutions, foundations, and universities. All these sponsors contract with CROs to outsource trials without having to maintain a staff for these services.

So, what are the issues that are keeping CROs awake at night? Like any other niche organization, CROs have their own industry-related challenges.

  • Manage data: CROs deal with huge volumes of data that requires proper management, maintenance, security, and order.
  • Data security: CROs are concerned about keeping their clinical data private.
  • Resource management: CROs work with numerous teams – medical and administrative staff, clinical operations groups, information management crew, medical writers, and Quality Assurance teams. To deliver maximum productivity and profit, all these departments require smart management and collaboration.
  • Accounting challenges: CROs have to accurately predict and estimate their third-party costs associated with a clinical trial and rethink their R&D spends in case of trial cancellations
  • Quality standards: CROs must fulfil quality assurance and quality control requirements to be able to conduct clinical studies. They must also follow Good Clinical Practice (GCP), local regulations, and other guidelines

To address these issues, CROs need smart resource management and budgeting solutions that can track project management, cost calculations, billing, invoicing and more, helping these agencies to keep to the budget, meet deadlines, and deliver quality services.
