Accelerate Study Cycle Times with Clinical Trial Software for CROs

In our post-pandemic world, contract research organizations (CROs) face more challenges than ever. With greater competition, market consolidation, and a growing emphasis on site empowerment, the CRO market is in a state of flux. Only those willing to be flexible as they apply learnings from the COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath are likely to come out ahead.   

One of the key takeaways from the COVID-19 pandemic applied throughout the clinical trial industry is to invest in mission-critical technology. Devana Solutions’ category-defining PROPEL platform offers improved site selection, real-time communication, and site collaboration. PROPEL provides process and performance transparency while automating workflows, accelerating cycle times, and reducing the overall workload for CROs and sites. 

Improved Site Selection 

PROPEL Site Query Functionality

CROs have long relied on manual, time-consuming processes to identify the most suitable sites for new clinical trials. With PROPEL, we’ve eliminated this outdated approach. 

PROPEL enables CROs to perform targeted queries to determine suitable sites for new trials. Find the most effective sites in real-time by digitally querying site capabilities based on therapeutic expertise, physical site facilities, investigator and staff certifications, and more. PROPEL automatically stores site and investigator performance and capabilities data to share with sponsors or use for future trials.  

With PROPEL, CROs can be confident in the sites they’ve selected when reporting back to sponsors with progress updates. 

Real-Time Collaboration 

When you have a clinical trial underway, it’s important to have a tool that makes it easy for you to share information with sites—and receive real-time responses. 

Forget endless follow-up emails, calls, and meetings. Instead, push out mass communications or individually tag relevant users or site teams, alerting them of new trial opportunities, updates, or queries. PROPEL’s threaded chat conversations allow CROs and sites to pose questions, share documents, and provide updates. Real-time feedback from sites, such as if there are too many inclusion/exclusion criteria or more realistic estimates for patient enrollment, can help CROs with sponsor bid defenses. Sites can also ask questions and share documents via the same channels—keeping everyone in the loop throughout the entire clinical trial process.  

With PROPEL, CROs also gain insights into other site organizations already using PROPEL, including two of the largest site networks and the largest site organization in the world. 

Performance Transparency 


PROPEL Site Activity Dashboard

When running clinical trials, you need to be able to track and analyze current and historical metrics. This is where PROPEL comes in. 

Tracking current and historical trial metrics with PROPEL’s dashboards and reports can help CROs win more sponsor bid defenses by quantifying past successes and showcasing real-time updates for trials currently running. Key data generated throughout the clinical trial process is automatically stored within PROPEL and can be accessed via custom reports and visualizations whenever needed. Know exactly how a trial progresses from site selection to completion with real-time data capture and analysis. Identify bottlenecks in terms of site responses, patient enrollment, and more so you can step in and provide targeted support where needed.  

Sharing the latest data anytime with stakeholders and sponsors is critical to accelerating cycle times and mitigating bottlenecks and risks.
