At ProPharma, we offer a unique approach to the traditional Clinical Research Organization (CRO) Full-Service Provider (FSP) model. As the world’s largest Research Consulting Organization (RCO), we provide tailored and customized FSP solutions designed to fit your precise needs. Our offerings are both cost-effective and quality-focused, ensuring that you receive the maximum value for your investment.
ProPharma offers a range of FSP models that can accommodate various requirements, providing specific therapeutic area expertise, operational expertise, and integrated processes and systems. Our primary goal is to identify the most appropriate outsourcing approach for your project, ensuring a perfect fit for your needs. Our expertise spans across clinical operations, clinical data sciences, biostatistics, safety, nonclinical, and medical writing, enabling us to assist our clients in developing comprehensive FSP solutions.
FSP Resourcing Solutions
The global shortage of resources is a crisis that impacts the entire pharmaceutical industry. Finding experienced talent has become increasingly challenging and expensive. Utilizing smart recruitment strategies that leverage both our clinical recruitment team and the resources of Planet Pharma, our access to talent is unparalleled. Whether you need to outsource an entire function or establish a small, focused team for a specific area, we can find you the best-in-class expertise to develop an FSP where others fail.
Portfolio Management with FSP
Accurately forecasting resourcing needs is always a challenge within the clinical trial domain. With over 20 years of experience in developing FSP solutions, ProPharma understands the need to make nimble adjustments as queries and responses from regulatory bodies frequently impact clinical timelines. As more than just a staff augmentation provider, ProPharma can help you in efficiently managing your portfolio of work and partner with your leadership to adjust your resource strategies as needed.

When you work with us, you gain access to a high-caliber team that analyzes your KPIs to optimize your existing operational environment and develops tailor-made solutions that fill the gaps to create exceptional results.
Our global team consists of Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) with diverse backgrounds across the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, and diagnostic industries. With our deep-rooted expertise across countless therapeutic areas, we can anticipate obstacles and develop strategies that fit our clients’ unique needs. Having a top-tier team of professionals allows our FSP infrastructure to move resources internally across clinical programs.
Time and Cost Efficiencies
The FSP model offers significant reduction in costs with greater potential to drive operational efficiencies over time. We enable companies to grow in infrastructure without the headcount burden & risks associated with HR costs & processes. Let ProPharma manage the administrative burden, so you can concentrate on the core tasks of the clinical trial, ensuring business continuity and driving efficiency.
100% Dedicated Teams
We not only provide FSP solutions but we also tailor them to your needs by engaging experts who are experienced across all phases of clinical development. At ProPharma, we know that a successful compound starts with assembling the right team, and we’ll build it with you. Our FSP model is a win-win functional solution because it fosters a partnership that brings together shared expertise & industry experience.
Hybrid FSP Solutions
In line with our flexible, customized RCO approach to providing solutions to the pharmaceutical industry, our approach to FSP is to always provide a thoughtful, tailored solution to your unique need. We carefully analyze the type and volume of work and provide you with the most logical, cost-effective model, whether it is FTE-based, unit-based, time & materials, or a hybrid approach.
In addition, when outsourcing a cohesive book of studies for full-service support, ProPharma can provide a hybrid FSP/FSO (Full Service Outsourcing) approach that provides the best of both worlds: end-to-end clinical study support that utilizes dedicated resources to ensure consistency and transferability of knowledge from one study to the next. With this model, you can have confidence that each study is approached with the same level of expertise and gain efficiencies through increased compound knowledge.

ProPharma's FSP solutions include complete ownership of the quality of work in support of clinical trials with multiple touchpoints for issue escalation including:
- Executive Leadership Oversight
- Governance Structure
- Joint Operating Committees (JOC) for multi-functional engagements
- Functional Governance Committees
- Operational Leadership
- Customized quality metrics with convenient read-outs provided in the form of dashboards or PowerPoint presentations
