Sitero and CRIO have teamed up to offer clinical trial sponsors a model that provides electronic study start-up, recruitment, enrolment, and data management services.

The partnership will leverage CRIO's proprietary technology platform and Sitero's clinical expertise according to the firms, which said the plan is to allow sites and sponsors to efficiently manage all aspects of the clinical trial process electronically and remotely.

The scope of the partnership will cover recruitment, patient scheduling, data management, IRB & IBC services, eConsent, eRegulatory/eISF, eSource and patient stipends.

Sitero CEO Sankesh Abbhi predicted the combination would be of benefit to the drug trial sponsors with which the firms work.

“Our unified solution will allow us to execute our trials more efficiently and allow us to be a strategic partner to CRIO's site customers by providing data entry, query resolution and administrative support services that aim to free up research teams to focus on critical, value-added activities so they can bring treatments to market faster."

CIRO CEO and co-founder Raymond Nomizu, cited growing market need for effective clinical trial and management solutions as the driver for the new partnership.

"Now more than ever, sites and sponsors need a solution to manage all aspects of the clinical trial process. Our integrated solution with Sitero offers tremendous possibilities for sites, sponsors and the industry to reimagine clinical trial execution."

For Sitero, the partnership comes a few months after the acquisition of Axiom, a provider of SaaS regulatory compliance solutions to IRB, IBCs and clinical and commercial research organizations.

According to CIRO, more than 2,000 clinical research sites are already using its eSource platform to standardize the management of trial data. The firm also claims the technology has been used by over 800 sponsors in more than 6,000 clinical studies to date.
