PCM Trials has announced the acquisition of EmVenio Research, according to a press release.1 Effective immediately, the acquisition strengthens PCM Trials' and EmVenio's abilities to recruit and retain diverse populations for clinical research studies, as required for regulatory approval. Following the acquisition, PCM Trials now has access to a site network that is focused on serving underrepresented patient populations in previously hard-to-reach communities and can work flexibly with sponsors to achieve their study goals.

"The acquisition of EmVenio is an important part of our company's overall strategy to further remove barriers for patients of all backgrounds and ethnicities to participate in clinical research, creating the most patient-centric clinical trial model," said Greg Austin, president of PCM Trials in the press release. "Our pioneering approach to using Certified Mobile Research Nurses who visit patients in their homes has already been shown to improve both patient retention and diversity in clinical trials and drive faster study completion. Now, with the addition of EmVenio's mobile research site network, we have the unmatched ability to provide additional convenience for prospective participants, empowering community-based clinical trial access."

EmVenio has activated 63 mobile sites across over 22 states in the United States plus 10 locations in the United Kingdom. Additionally, the community-based clinical trial site provider has contracted 25 studies across numerous therapeutic areas.

This most recent acquisition of EmVenio marks the second completed by PCM Trials within the past month. On January 10, the company announced the acquisition of Netherlands-based Clinical Trial Service (CTS), which solidified PCM Trials' ability and reach to successfully conduct global clinical trials.2

"We are thrilled to announce the culmination of EmVenio's and PCM Trials' efforts in creating the most comprehensive global capability for patient visits, spanning from traditional site settings to the comfort of one's home, and everywhere in between through mobile sites," said Thad Wolfram, president of EmVenio in the press release. "Our combined services prioritize minimizing burdens for research participation while enhancing the overall participant experience."
