MCC Joins Avoca Quality Consortium’s Effort to Provide Quality Service Management
WCG has brought the Metrics Champion Consortium (MCC) into the fold of the Avoca Quality Consortium (AQC), a partnership that will help accelerate the implementation of quality management and compliance best practices in trials around the world.
With the recently announced integration, AQC members will now have access to the benefits offered by MCC, whose members collaborate on standardized performance metrics and related tools for trial optimization. A single platform virtual knowledge center will be released for members in January 2022, according to WCG.
“Our combined work will result in a fully integrated, logically organized, comprehensive catalog of clinical trial metrics. This will help drive standardization across the industry and, in turn, move us toward greater clarity and efficiency,” Patricia Leuchten, founder and CEO of WCG Avoca, said. “Ultimately, implementation of improved measurement programs that have a focus on outcomes will lead to higher quality in clinical trial execution across the industry.”
AQC is comprised of more than 160 site organizations, pharma and biotech companies, clinical service providers and CROs that work together to bring quality in trials to the forefront. Members of the consortium have access to more than 500 tools, templates, dashboards, process documents and leading practices related to quality, risk management and inspection readiness in trials.
