In short, Devana Solutions is bringing the clinical trial site to the patient. 

Today, Devana Solutions is pleased to announce IMA Clinical Research has made the commitment to adopt the most innovative site operations and analytics platform in the clinical trials industry, Devana PROPEL. “Partnering with Devana Solutions aligns with IMA Clinical Research’s centralization strategy initiated to improve efficiency within our network and accelerate study startup, supporting our mission of advancing the development of novel treatments to patients in need,” said IMA Group CEO & President, Mark Weinberger, Ph.D., MPH. 

With a rapidly growing network of traditional site locations, over 100 satellite sites and a database of over 300,000 patients, IMA Clinical Research represents the ideal client-profile to adopt Devana PROPEL Enterprise. “We are thrilled to welcome IMA Clinical Research onto our PROPEL platform,” commented Barry Lake, Devana Solutions’ CEO and Co-Founder. “They truly are a perfect fit for our technology which uses the power of the cloud to bring the expertise of clinical trials professionals into the diverse community site locations where IMA Clinical Research excels. Their broadly distributed site network allows millions of genetically, socially and racially diverse patient populations in urban centers and underserved locations to access clinical trials as a care option.” 

Patient access to clinical trials and research professionals leveraging advanced technology shouldn’t be limited by geography. They won’t, thanks to cloud-based platforms like Devana Solutions PROPEL and IMA Clinical Research. Stay tuned for a steady stream of new Devana Solutions client-partnership announcements in 2022!
