All Clinical Research Solutions:
Our clinical research experts offer solutions to bring your product to market, regardless of where you are in your product’s lifecycle.
The path to project success begins with choosing the right model and methodology to anticipate and manage the challenges that could arise during the lifecycle of a clinical trial. In response to more stringent regulations, globalization, and ever-changing technologies, ProPharma can build and tailor the optimal operational model to support consistent quality delivery and maximize participant recruitment and retention while expanding access to diverse populations. We will work with you to develop strategic, flexible approaches that leverage technology, clinical informatics, and our global reach to maximize data‑driven decision making that drives safety, quality, and efficiency.
Clinical Operations Services
Clinical operations play a pivotal role in the successful execution of clinical research, encompassing the design, implementation, and management of Phase I to IV trials.
With the increasing complexity of clinical trials, driven by heightened regulatory guidelines, the pressure on clinical operations teams has intensified. While some organizations allocate considerable time and resources to this aspect, others opt to outsource their clinical trials to Contract Research Organizations (CROs) specializing in the specific field of research. These CROs offer comprehensive services, ensuring end-to-end support for the seamless execution of trials.
Our dedicated clinical operations team collaborates with you to optimize the design of your clinical trials, implement patient-centric approaches, and provide guidance throughout the entire clinical development lifecycle. Discover how our experts can assist you in the multi-phase development of your clinical operations.Explore Clinical Operations

Data Safety Monitoring Board
Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) services provide you with improved workflows, compliance, and communication to ensure the safety and integrity of your clinical study data.
PhoPharma’s team of medical consultants provide the option of safety data review (i.e., individual case safety reports and/or aggregate summaries of data) by a physician with experience in pharmacovigilance. The review and consultation include an assessment of the data and its significance to the conduct of the study. Our team then provides a recommendation for any actions to be taken, including reporting of aggregate data to the FDA as an IND Safety Report, requesting review by the DSMB, and/or changes to the Investigator's Brochure, Informed Consent Form, or study protocol.

Decentralized Clinical Trials
Decentralized Clinical Trials (DCTs) are studies that are designed for study visits, procedures, and data collection to occur outside of the traditional site setting. DCTs revolve around the concept of patient centricity, with the goal of making participation easier and more convenient for the patient, ultimately creating a larger, more diverse population to test your drug or device while ensuring patient comfort and safety. The increased flexibility of DCTs expands the geographical reach, improves recruitment and retention, and enhances the patient experience while providing Sponsors with reliable data.
We support DCTs by providing the opportunity for study visits to take place in a location convenient to the patient, such as their home or office, supported by our team of employee GoClinical Clinicians who are trained in GCP and protocol-specific procedures.
It can be overwhelming to determine how to deploy a decentralized approach, so incorporating home visits into your protocol is often a great place to start. ProPharma can support home visits as part of a hybrid or completely virtual trial design. Home visits allow for greater flexibility in your study design and reduce the burden of participation on the patient by designing processes that fit into the patient’s life, rather than asking the patient to fit their life into the trial. Allowing simple procedures to be performed in the patient’s home, also reduces the burden on the site by allowing site staff to focus on recruiting and enrolling patients and more complex procedures.
Employee Nursing Staff
ProPharma directly employs all GoClinical Clinicians (GCCs) to support your patients. Once hired, all GCCs are overseen by our Director of DCT Nursing and receive extensive training in GCP, IATA (Dangerous Goods), and protocol-specific procedures. This allows us to have direct oversight of all visits and ensures those visits are performed by known, high-quality clinicians with strong clinical skills and trial experience. GCCs are selected based on study requirements and range from phlebotomists, LPNs, and RNs. We are easily able to add GCCs based on location by leveraging extensive Global Talent Acquisition team and sister staffing companies, with over 25,000 qualified providers currently in our global database. Our approach reduces sponsor costs, removes unnecessary layers of vendor administration, and alleviates the challenges of finding providers with short notice through local home health agencies, significantly reducing the risk of missed visits.
Proprietary eSource Technology
GoClinical, our proprietary, 21 CFR Part 11 and GDPR compliant eSource platform allows for the collection of source data from home visits and electronically sends data for entry into the EDC. All source forms are designed per study to mirror the CRF and act as a guide for our GCCs performing home visits. This approach to source collection significantly reduces source turnaround times, reduces documentation errors, and improves PI oversight.
Experience and Global Reach
ProPharma has invested in hiring the best leaders within the Decentralized Clinical Trial (DCT) space to build out the most efficient operational strategy based on lessons learned from several years of past experience. As the decentralized approach grows in the clinical research space, it is becoming even more important for Sponsors to have a reliable partner that can assist in designing trials with decentralized approaches in mind. Our DCT leadership team has over 10 years of experience in the DCT space and can help your team design and implement the right DCT solutions for your trial. Whether you’re interested in hybrid or completely virtual clinical trials, our team of experts can help.
ProPharma has 27 offices worldwide spanning 6 continents, providing a truly global footprint to support your decentralized clinical trials. ProPharma has 20 years of experience supporting Sponsors from early development through commercialization, which allows for expert insight at any phase or function of your study and a streamlined approach from a single provider.
Decentralized Clinical Trial Visit Procedures
Our decentralized visits include critical procedures for your clinical trial’s success. Let our team of experts review your protocol or draft synopsis and consult with your team on what visits or studies could benefit from a DCT model. Our procedural capabilities are as follows:
