GLEN BURNIE, Md., May 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Answering the need for global, site-focused enrollment support, Clinical Site Services (CSS), a leader in the patient enrollment industry, announces the expansion of its services to include global enrollment planning and implementation on a local, site-centric level.
"The extension of our worldwide presence is an important step that will allow us to assist sponsors with their global patient enrollment needs," says Chris Trizna, President of Clinical Site Services. "To date, we have been quite successful in delivering patient enrollment solutions to investigative sites and sponsors in North America; this expansion means that sponsors no longer need to seek out different patient recruitment partners for North American and Rest-of-World needs."
The CSS London-based office, headed up by industry executive Richard Anderson, will tap into professionals who have more than 20 years of experience in the life science, healthcare and patient recruitment industries. They will be able to implement patient enrollment and retention campaigns which are solely based in global markets, or as an adjunct to North American endeavors.
As with all CSS North American campaigns, the global programs will offer customized clinical research support and expertise. Through Local Enrollment Specialists, regional experts who have detailed knowledge of each country's regulatory provisions, CSS will provide site assessments, chart reviews, ethics committee submissions, local patient enrollment expertise, planning and implementation in more than 40 countries.
"This is an exciting new initiative. For the first time a patient enrollment provider can support sites at local level in over 40 countries," stated Richard Anderson, CSS Director of Global Patient Enrollment. "The teams will be working with the sites to help optimize their patient enrollment programs, maximizing enrollment and ROI."
All international endeavors will be centrally managed by CSS's project team.
"It all comes down to enrollment. Generating interest is important, but it's what happens after that," shared Trizna. "Sites are the only ones who can enroll patients. Successful sites consistently meet their enrollment goals. We are poised to support them with enrollment planning and implementation."
