The power of the Trusted Process®

The Trusted Process® is a metrics-driven methodology that we’ve developed to manage every aspect of your clinical studies. Our proprietary four-step approach delivers results faster, while still guaranteeing data integrity and reducing operational risk and variability.

  • Average study start-up time four weeks faster than industry average.1
  • Patient enrollment completed as planned.
  • Database lock faster than industry average.1

1. PlanActivation®

Our strategy for success begins as soon as we receive your request for proposal. Our therapeutic experts set about creating a fit-for-purpose study-delivery strategy. By combining a quality-by‑design approach with a robust feasibility evaluation, we develop a solid strategy for the delivery of your protocol.

2. QuickStart®

After selecting INC Research as your delivery partner, we kick off the selected services by leveraging best-in-class project management practices. Our experienced project teams translate the strategy into comprehensive plans, while working to understand your priorities.

A week-long “camp”, attended by your team and ours, reviews every aspect of the project. We agree goals, build study ownership and clarify responsibilities. This reduces cycle times and the potential for future strategy revisions. The team leaves with an aligned vision and a mutually agreed upon plan that accounts for the project milestones, deliverables, key risks and their response plans. The result? On average, your study launches four weeks earlier.

3. ProgramAccelerate®

This is the moment the project moves into top gear. Momentum builds as study sites come online and begin contributing to robust enrolment and data generation. The project team focuses on delivery by overseeing the project activities and managing risks. Day in, day out, we monitor the project’s performance, resolving issues as they arise, while keeping you in the loop.

4. QualityFinish®

The pay-off. As soon as the first enrolled patient completes the study, we begin the next phase of intense planning. We reassemble the project management team to review the deliverables and evaluate project performance – a unique approach that reduces operational risk, variability and cycle times. The outcome is a database lock metric that is faster than industry average.
