Health Decisions, a full-service clinical research organization (CRO) specializing in high-efficiency adaptive solutions, welcomes Argentina-based CRO KLIXAR to its Agile Clinical Network—a newly launched community of research partners formed to eliminate the information gaps and prolonged timelines inherent to complex global studies. As a network member, KLIXAR will share key resources, best practices, and partnership opportunities with Health Decisions and like-minded CROs who have embraced Agile Clinical Development—a methodology which combines adaptive design with adaptive operations to cut trial timelines and increase transparency—as the key to efficient multinational trials.
To become a certified network partner, KLIXAR completed rigorous training in Agile Clinical Development techniques using Health Decisions’ internal system. Available externally for the first time, the training system covers every aspect of Agile trial management with an emphasis on impactful yet easy-to-implement adaptive operations. This training is mandatory for all Agile Clinical Network partners and ensures adherence to the stringent standards and guidelines demanded by global trials.
“We welcome the opportunity to partner with a leading U.S.-based CRO to ensure the highest quality deliverable for our sponsors,” said Enrique Gaubeca, Managing Director at KLIXAR. “Our alliance with Health Decisions will enable us to broaden our customer base while providing unparalleled efficiency and transparency to pharmaceutical companies in Latin America.”
In addition to continuing education in Agile Clinical Development and opportunities to collaborate on adaptive solutions for clinical operations and design, the alliance gives KLIXAR access to Health Decisions’ high-efficiency data management systems, biostatistics expertise, medical writers, advanced data collection tools, and real-time reporting capabilities. In return, Health Decisions has gained the opportunity to expand its Agile philosophy to the Latin American market by becoming aligned with KLIXAR’s infrastructure.
“Our expanded presence in Latin America offers numerous advantages for running clinical trials: a large population, a high percentage of treatment-naïve patients, qualified medical personnel, and well-established regulations,” said Rick Farris, Chief Operations Officer at Health Decisions. "We look forward to working with KLIXAR and all our Agile Clinical Network partners to raise the standards of efficiency for global clinical trials. By producing rapid, accurate results for our sponsors regardless of geographic boundaries, we hope to shape the future of drug development and improve the quality of health and living standards worldwide.”
