Parexel expands patient access to clinical trials through
BOSTON and Durham, NC, June 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Parexel, a leading global clinical research organization (CRO), today announced the launch of its Community Alliance Network, a new program integrating more clinical research in community health care to better serve patients and thereby create new opportunities for greater diversity in clinical trials. SVC Health®the leading healthcare solutions company, and Javara, the leading integrated research organization, joined the network as inaugural members, opening the door to community-based research sites and increasing access to new patient populations to support the conduct of trials for Parexel’s biopharmaceutical customers.
“For too long, clinical research has been siled into small pockets of the healthcare system,” said Clare Grace, PhD, chief patient officer at Parexel. “Not only has this therapeutic innovation slowed down, it has also limited patients’ access to clinical research as a care option. Giving patients more opportunities to access and participate in clinical research – through their doctor’s office, in CVS MinuteClinics® within the designated HealthHUB® or through traditional university sites or hospitals – is a crucial and strategic decision. Parexel is leading the way in giving access to the 95% of patients not currently participating in research to design patient-centered clinical trials.
Over the past 10 years, Parexel has built its Site Alliance network with over 500 top clinical research institutes and 21,000 principal investigators in over 20 countries with diverse site staff and patient populations across all therapeutic areas. The company’s Community Alliance Network builds on these efforts through alliances with healthcare and research organizations that have close relationships with patients who previously had little or no ability to participate in clinical research.
“The traditional research delivery model does not effectively connect the majority of patients to clinical trial opportunities as part of a patient’s routine healthcare experience, and therefore only a small percentage is currently aware of the research as a potential care option,” Jennifer said. Byrne, CEO of Javara. “Parexel’s Community Alliance Network aligns perfectly with Javara’s mission to advance access to clinical research as a care option by connecting with patients through the healthcare organizations and physicians they already know and trust. It is a privilege to join this program as an inaugural member to further bridge the gap between clinical research and clinical care and bring trials to those who need them most.
“By joining the Community Alliance Network, we can continue to bring healthcare solutions to consumers within the communities where they live and work,” said Tony Clapsis, SVP and General Manager of Clinical Trial Services, CVS Health. .™. “Through our community presence across the United States, we are able to expedite access to clinical trials and, at the same time, help address long-standing recruitment and diversity issues. “
