Criterium, Inc. is a full-service, contract research organization that offers a unique mix of high-quality clinical research services, real-time data acquisition and management, and personalized communication processes, to manage a trial from initial planning to approval, on-time, and on-budget. Founded in 1991, the Criterium team provides a wide range of therapeutic expertise, top-quality clinical development services, and efficient processes to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical-device industries. We are project management experts!
Criterium’s staff have the ability to handle large-scale clinical projects from site recruitment to patient enrollment, from study initiation to study closure, and from data acquisition to data reporting – all while providing the personal attention that can be lacking in larger CRO’s. With fewer levels of management, Criterium’s staff is able to respond quickly to a client’s request and initiate action in real time, without having to consult a committee. Without compromising the quality of data, Criterium’s staff centrally manage studies, allowing CRAs to manage more sites, more efficiently; Criterium monitors can manage twice the number of sites that traditional monitors can handle. They are all trained to FDA, ICH and GCP guidelines. Criterium’s experienced and established staff gives all projects, regardless of size, the focus and attention they require.
At Criterium, who we are, what we do, and how we do it are centered on our service reputation: an uncompromising "Always Delivers" attitude in everything we do. Get To Know Us!
FULL SERVICE CRO
Criterium provides full clinical research and development services to Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, and Medical Device companies in prospective Phases I-IV, Therapeutic Equivalence studies, patient registries, observational and retrospective studies and preference, satisfaction and resource utilization surveys. Our translational science model allows us to provide expertise and innovative solutions for the rapid design, implementation, management and completion of complex cancer trials using the consortia model.
We focus on organizing, cleaning and managing clinical trial data for any clinical study environment. We provide a centralized clinical trial data management environment that allows a compliant, standardized methodology for processing, validating and presenting real-time information to clinical trial management and monitors.
EDC (Electronic Data Capture) is one of the tools that Criterium uses to acquire and process real-time clinical data. Because clients have different needs and budgets, and often choose the EDC vendor for their studies, our sophisticated data management staff has experience with a variety of EDC vendor systems. The common factor in all these systems is that our workflow maximizes the facility of receiving real-time data so we can provide accurate and timely decision making information to clients.
Our TeleDiary™ brand of ePRO is Criterium's original IVR (Interactive Voice Response) service that collects data directly from patients. In conjunction with our IVR and evolved IWR services, Criterium provides real-time data tracking for patient recruitment, registration, randomization, patient diaries, and CTM management. The advent of IWR (Web Board Reporting) allows entry of information using computers on the most prevalent bring-your-own-devices (BYOD), i.e., Android and Apple smartphones and tablets. Remote data management using either stand alone or integrated IxR (IVR and/or IWR) and EDC combines the process of collection, correction, and database locking, as well as a metadata audit trail not possible with paper CRFs or patient diaries. IWR (Wed Board) reporting includes smart phone or tablet component providing further convenience for all trial collaborators to securely access real-time data via the web. Criterium has been implementing technology in clinical trials since 1991.
Through the coordinated implementation of all these interconnected technology tools, Criterium manages clinical data every day for rapid data editing, timely decision making, and on-time release of the final deliverable – usually a final study report. Our extensive use of real-time systems also allows us to manage field staff and control costs of clinical studies worldwide.
