HealthCarePoint BlueCloud Enhances Collaborations Between Institutional Review Boards and Investigators to Help Site Sustainability
HealthCarePoint (HCP) announces its collaboration with independent institutional review boards (IRBs). The announcement follows a meeting held at the 2015 Drug Information Association conference in Washington DC, where ethical review committees agreed to identify collaborative opportunities to minimize – and ultimately eliminate – redundancies that investigator sites and healthcare professionals experience when the same professional, experience and training (PET) credentials are required by multiple IRBs, sponsors, clinical research organizations and other industry stakeholders.
Over the past few years, HCP, and other industry stakeholders like Quorum, IntegReview, Chesapeake, Salus, MaGil, Sterling and dozens of other organizations have been exploring ways to use BlueCloud collaborative networking technologies to minimize redundancies created by proprietary siloes that make it more difficult for investigator sites to do business with and maintain long-term sustainability with IRBs, sponsors, clinical research organizations, universities, governments and others in the industry.
As collaborative momentum builds across the world, HCP continues to work closely with global industry leaders – including independent and institutional IRBs, universities, governments, private and not-for-profit standards organizations – that believe industry sustainability begins with creating common, seamless collaborative networks. This will maximize subject human protection and get products to market faster by eliminating waste generated by redundant siloed processes required from healthcare professionals and investigator sites.
