Center Overview

Family Care Research is a dedicated research clinic located in the fastest growing city in the Northwest- Boise, Idaho. Family Care Research conducts Phase II-IV research studies.

Family Care Research’s sister company Injury Care Research was conducting research for 10 years specializing in analgesic and musculoskeletal indications. When sponsors began approaching asking if Injury Care Research could conduct studies outside of those indications, owner Jill Heinz, decided to expand the reach of Injury Care Research and opened Family Care Research in 2018 to extend the reach and capabilities of quality research in the Treasure Valley.

Family Care Research is dedicated to assisting pharmaceutical and device companies find new therapies to help patients better manage their healthcare. We are dedicated to providing cutting edge therapy that can assist in managing patient’s acute and chronic medical conditions today and for a lifetime.

Family Care Research recognizes that competent and ethical clinical research coordinators are the core of successful clinical trials. We ensure all staff undergo and maintain comprehensive training in GCP/ICH, IATA and HIPPA regulations. All coordinators have extensive experience with numerous eCRF and eDiary systems. To ensure quality we also have a comprehensive internal audit and QA program.

We also understand that quick study start-up and rapid recruitment is key to successful trials. We have a 72-hour turnaround time for regulatory documents, and clinical trial agreements are typically executed within seven days. We do not need a finalized CTA in place to complete regulatory documents. Strategically competitive and consistently high enrollers, we are known to be effective in our approach to clinical trials. Our recruitment efforts are successful by conducting thorough database reviews and utilizing TV, radio, print, and online media. We are also known for our strong community ties through health fairs and alliances with various local foundations and clinician referrals.
