DP Clinical Puts Its Confidence in Comprehend for Strategic Shift

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., August 12, 2019DP Clinical, Inc. and Comprehend Systems, Inc. are joining forces to transition the Rockville, Maryland-based CRO from spreadsheets and EDC reports to a system that aligns study teams with visual data analytics, automated KRI monitoring with alerts, and fully-auditable task management workflow.

After lessons learned from using another statistical solution from a different vendor, DP Clinical conducted a new search with a more extensive evaluation process, which led them to Comprehend. “We’re confident that Comprehend will deliver for us and our clients,” says Devinder Poonian, President and CEO at DP Clinical. “Comprehend is taking an active role as a partner in training, enablement, and system implementation. Our team is very excited about the additional analytical capabilities the Comprehend solution will provide.”

Comprehend also scored points with the CRO for scalable pricing that can accommodate federally-funded projects.

Initially, DP Clinical is deploying Comprehend’s Centralized Monitoring solution for an important global study to reduce patient risk and improve site performance. “We anticipate great improvements in our ability to allocate site visitation resources more effectively and to identify and address issues as soon as they arise,” Ms. Poonian says.

“Sponsors who use CROs should rely on them for state-of-the-art solutions that improve clinical trial processes,” says Comprehend’s General Manager, Brett Flinchum. “We’re excited to partner with DP Clinical to reduce risk for their clients in a dramatic way, using the latest advances in data science.”
