CROs ICRC-Weyer and Allied Clinical Management have entered into a strategic partnership to form MEDIS Research Group. The partnership will enable the two CROs to combine clinical research experience and provide complete service solutions across all stages of the clinical development process.
The decision to form MEDIS Research Group came after observing a shift in the market toward consolidation in the industry over the last few years. ICRC-Weyer and Allied Clinical Management, both based in Berlin, have been working together on several clinical trial projects, with Allied Clinical Management handling trial conduct, site management and monitoring, while ICRC-Weyer delivers “back-office” services such as clinical data management, biostatistics and medical writing.
MEDIS Research Group are already in discussions with clinical research services providers, such as clinical laboratories and medical communication experts they have worked with in the past, to join the group and complete the range of clinical trial services from protocol design to writing the final clinical study report.
The two companies have developed and implemented SOPs to streamline their collaboration processes. This ensures one main contract with each client and one contact person to guide each client’s clinical trial project from beginning to conclusion.
