Monday, June 25, 2012
Patient Recruiters International (PRI), a provider of direct patient access solutions for patient recruitment, has opened its new Southeast Asian office in Bangkok, Thailand.
The strategic location gives PRI central access to India, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan and Indonesia. PRI Asia is located within minutes of four international hospitals that service over 3 million patient visits per year and nearly 1 million medical tourists for tertiary care and rare diseases.
“We are excited to begin our direct presence in Asia by offering clinical site selection, site management and patient recruitment services through our office in Bangkok, Thailand,” said Larry Risen, president of PRI. “Bangkok possesses world class international hospitals with a high volume of…patients. The economics of conducting clinical trials in Thailand and other Southeast Asian markets is very favorable: the quality of research is good and the clinical sites are ICH/GCP compliant. This location is ideal for investigator meetings and workshops for clinical sites throughout Southeast Asia.”
