QuintilesIMS has been awarded the 2016 Eagle Award from the Society for Clinical Research Sites (SCRS) for the fourth consecutive year. Presented during the annual SCRS Site Solutions Summit, the site-nominated award recognizes CRO and biopharmaceutical sponsors dedicated to building positive relationships with research sites through leadership, professionalism and integrity.
“We are honored to bring this award home again by focusing on what really matters to sites,” said Cynthia Verst, president, Clinical Operations at QuintilesIMS. “This award once again recognizes our focus on enhancing our site relationships and delivering best-in-class site facing operations. I would like to thank our talented teams, as well as the sites and clients with whom we partner, for their support as we work together to help our customers drive healthcare forward.”
"QuintilesIMS' commitment to site relationships has been demonstrated in their repeated placement as a finalist or winner of the CRO Eagle Award," said Christine Pierre, president of SCRS. "The bar continues to rise as CROs develop processes that support site sustainability and we applaud all of the Eagle Award finalists."
In advance of the Site Solutions Summit, SCRS members and clinical research site professionals globally were invited to vote for the CRO and sponsor they felt demonstrated a strong commitment to site partnerships. Criteria also considered for this award included patient safety, timely enrollment and effective communication to optimize study success.
