Is your current CRO under-performing? Sometimes things don’t go as well as planned. All the while, your study must continue to deliver. Changing CROs mid-project can be a risky proposition. On the other hand, not switching CROs may present a greater risk to your project depending on a number of factors.
Under-performance can mean different things to different people. Whether it is timeline issues, quality of the work, high staff turnover, or unanticipated additional costs, your project can be at risk very quickly. If the under-performance is due to a root problem within the CRO, it may be time to make a change. Sometimes changing a function will fix the problem, and other times you may need to change providers completely. From the beginning of a project and throughout, it is smart to define how you will measure your CRO performance relative to expectations.
Upsilon Global engage with you, in confidence, to prepare replacement CRAs and/or a study management team, to take over the trial from your current CRO on an agreed date. We will provide you with replacement CRAs and if necessary a Project Manager, allowing you to prevent lost time and at minimal expense.
