Groundbreaking site benchmarking data proves that sites with more staff certified are more profitable than those with fewer staff certified.
· Clinical trial sites with greater numbers of certified staff initiated three times as many trials (20.9 on average) as those with fewer certified staff (6.9) in 2013;
· Clinical trial sites with greater numbers of certified staff averaged $1.6 million in study grants invoiced in 2013, versus $466,000 for sites with fewer certified staff; and
· Clinical trial sites with greater numbers of certified staff reported greater operating profit (18.2%) than those with fewer certified staff (13.9%) in 2013.
This data, which is the result of a joint site survey conducted by ACRP and CenterWatch, a leading provider of clinical trials information, was announced this weekend as part of the inaugural ACRP Site Strategy Forum in San Antonio, Texas, as part of the ACRP 2014 Global Conference & Exhibition.
