Site Management

Ergomed uses a unique approach to ensure that we maximse the management of the site relationship.  Our approach as established over 20 years ago by our company’s founder, Dr Miroslav Reljanovic, who was previously a Principal Investigator. Ergomed’s assessment and knowledge of the experience of physicians and nurses, investigator facilities, pharmacy and laboratory services significantly improves the access to and the availability of appropriate patients. Our Site Management model is an integrated part of our approach to the management of clinical trials.

Through a network of Site Coordinators serving sites across the globe, this enables us to  offer higher ‘patient-per-site’ ratios in comparison to other CROs. Our team provides continuous and ongoing site support that allows us to achieve enhanced patient recruitment rates whilst maintaining high quality data. Early and meticulous site evaluation in the feasibility process is critical in ensuring accelerated recruitment.

Our unique Site Management Support Solution allows us to offer:

  • Faster recruitment
  • More patients per site
  • Enhanced data quality
  • More timely data entry
  • Fewer data queries

Study Physician Support

 

Ergomed has established a Study Physician Team – a highly specialised group of MD’s that deal with the supervision of complicated or demanding therapeutic or diagnostic trials/procedures. All of our MDs that are part of the Study Physician Team have extensive previous clinical practice experience as well as experience in clinical research and drug development.

The presence of our experienced clinicians improves the training and compliance of the local investigator, which therefore increases recruitment rates and while helping to lower dropout rates. Our Study Physician Team has proven to be highly effective in trials with demanding protocols and procedures and ensures motivation of the principal investigator and site staff.

Our Study Physician Team assists with:

  • Study specific site training
  • Representing the Sponsor’s clinical interest at the sites
  • Maintaining good medic to medic relationships with the on-site physicians
  • Supporting investigators in appropriate patient selection
  • Encouraging the sites to seek new study subjects to enhance recruitment
  • Sharing of best practices as experienced at other sites and studies
  • Swift resolution of all potential medical issues
