Mission Statement: To furnish accurate clinical information by providing quality recruitment, quality care and quality data in an expedient manner.
ActivMed Practices & Research is a registered, woman-owned company operating in Massachusetts and New Hampshire since 1994. Our staff has experience working in the field of clinical research. The CEO has 24+ years of clinical research experience, and her staff and physicians all have two to 22 years working in clinical trials. We have four sites located in Methuen, Mass., Beverly, Mass., Lawrence, Mass., and Portsmouth, N.H.
Our company offers a multispecialty, free-standing research facility with experienced research physicians and psychiatrists. We use highly trained coordinators and private physician practices. Our providers are dedicated to providing exceptional treatment to their patients following good clinical practice.
We are committed to assuring that all clinical trial protocols are performed with the utmost attention to detail. ActivMed can participate in phase 2, 3, 3b and 4 clinical trials on an inpatient and outpatient basis. New for 2020, we are proud to be certified as a Virtual Trial Capable site through VirTrial.
Our area physician providers have active practices in northern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire, which provides us access to more patients; therefore, we pride ourselves on our ability to quickly recruit subjects for our trials. We work full-time at our job and that makes all the difference.

Our physicians have been involved with clinical research and together they have more than 35 years of experience practicing medicine and have private practices in the local community. Areas of physician specialty include dermatology, neurology, family practice, pain management and general medicine.
ActivMed trains our highly motivated staff to excel in patient care as well as all aspects of clinical research. All clinical staff are HIPAA-, GCP-, IATA- and CPR-trained and recertified every two years. Each of our four locations are CLIA waiver-certified. Each coordinator is encouraged to take the ACRP national certification exam, while ActivMed covers the costs of the exam. Currently we have two CCRCs on our staff in these offices as well as a SOCRA- certified CCRP. All our coordinators have a medical background with clinical experience, such as nursing, laboratory, nutrition, medical doctrine, medical assisting and bioscience. Each coordinator is tested yearly on their clinical skills.
Documentation of training is recorded in our staff training logs and office SOPs. Research experience in years expands from two years to 22 years. Quality is of the utmost importance to us; therefore, most of our staff have completed Clinical Research Quality Management training through the Quality Management Institute.
ActivMed is in central/southern New Hampshire in the city of Portsmouth. Being situated between the Maine and Massachusetts borders allows us to draw patients from all of the surrounding area. Our patient base covers a diverse population based on age, gender and cultural backgrounds. Recruitment is accomplished using one-to-one communication, established databases and local marketing campaigns.
We can use central IRBs and have a standard three-to-five-day turnaround time for contracts.
