Following a six month long industry wide technology assessment, Advanced Clinical, (Advanced) has selected Triumph Research intelligence (TRI) as their RBM technology and services partner. TRI will be providing the OPRA platform for all of Advanced’s studies whose sponsors have requested a risk-based approach to monitoring with the objective of improving operational efficiency, quality, and patient safety.

Advanced has involved key sponsors in the vendor selection process and will start the RBM journey with a fully engaged partnership of sponsor, CRO, and vendor.

Triumph Research Intelligence is a Raleigh-based clinical technology company, founded in 2013 as the technology arm of the long established industry consultancy, Triumph Consultancy Services.

“We are excited to have chosen TRI as our technology and services partner. Their OPRA technology is well designed and has been enhanced through an intensive 18 month period of industry piloting and consultation with industry bodies and regulatory agencies. This, coupled with their comprehensive understanding of the RBM space and trial operations in general, gives us the confidence that together Advanced Clinical and TRI will provide the best possible overall RBM service solution,” said Julie Ross, EVP Advanced Clinical. “We didn’t take the decision lightly, and evaluated more than ten different vendors before selecting TRI as our full service RBM provider. It was important to us that we found a company who we could really partner with through this period of development and growth for our business and the industry as a whole, as well as a solution that would meet our customer’s RBM needs. Adopting OPRA is going to allow us to enhance the levels of oversight and insight to the trials we conduct which translates to a better clinical experience for our sponsors and the patients taking part in the trials we manage.”

“We are thrilled to have been selected as Advanced’s RBM technology provider and implementation partner. We are thoroughly impressed with Advanced’s vision for their company and the open and honest approach they have taken throughout the vendor selection process,” said Duncan Hall, CEO of TRI. "The design of the first RBM studies are already underway, and the Advanced operations team is great to work with. With their willingness to develop their capabilities through this period of incredible change in the industry, Advanced is demonstrating their forward thinking approach to this positive change, not only formulating but implementing such strategies for future success. We look forward to supporting them as a partner throughout the RBM journey while continuing to explore the possibilities of predictive analytics and big data in the clinical trials industry.”
