Comprehend Launches Trial Risk Detection and Management for Mid-Size Clinical Research Organizations

CROs utilize Comprehend to be more competitive, improve efficiencies and adhere to ICH E6 (R2)

Redwood City, Calif., September 25, 2018 – Comprehend Systems, the leader in Clinical Intelligence software, announced today a new offering for mid-sized CROs to standardize on a risk platform to address their sponsor needs. CROs are operating in a highly competitive and complex business environment. An increased volume of data, condensed milestone times, greater regulations around quality and standards, and new requirements in managing risk, put a heavy burden on CROs. Comprehend has helped sponsors systematically reduce risk and speed clinical trials, through best in class analytics with continuous data aggregation, and is now putting these capabilities to work for mid-sized CROs.

“After collaborating with our CRO partners to understand their challenges and needs as they serve their sponsors, we created a new offering that helps them meet sponsor requirements for risk management and clinical data analytics. With Comprehend, mid-sized CROs now have a competitive advantage to win more business while also improving internal efficiency. We are excited to partner with the mid-sized segment of the industry to help them meet their organizational objectives,” commented Rick Morrison, Founder and President of Comprehend Systems.

Comprehend’s new offering allows smaller to mid-sized CROs get started with a packaged set of analytics and data monitoring that integrates with their risk management programs for sponsors. This offering is purpose-built for detecting and managing risk in the study conduct phase of a clinical trial. It takes advantage of Comprehend’s industry-leading Clinical Intelligence Platform, which provides a single cloud-based solution with powerful data aggregation, real-time monitoring, and team collaboration capabilities to report on:
