Advarra Clinical Research Network
Connecting the Clinical Research Ecosystem
Leveraging a standardized, seamless integration between sites, sponsors, and CROs to solve longstanding process and workflow challenges while improving patient centricity and bringing treatments to market safely and efficiently.
The Need for a Connected
To successfully reimagine the way we exchange data and communicate as research stakeholders, we need to align on the fact that there is a chasm in the sponsor-site tech ecosystem. Site technology has evolved to provide full operational, regulatory, and data management for clinical trials, but often lacks interoperability with similar sponsor systems.
As a result, research sites are asked to use trial-specific, sponsor-mandated technology, resulting in duplicative, inefficient workflows. A recent study sponsored by Advarra and the Society for Clinical Research Sites (SCRS) found:
of sites prefer to use at least some of their own technology solutions to manage and conduct industry trials
of sites currently use at least 4-6 sponsor-mandated systems per study
of sites spend more than 15 hours per week interacting with sponsor systems
of sites reported existing sponsor-provided eClinical solutions designed to enable site-sponsor connections actually increased their burden
The Impact of Today's Disconnected Landscape:
in lost opportunities as a result of each day of trial delay
increase in study startup timelines in the past 10 years
of all clinical trials will experience delays
time spent on administrative care detracting from patient care
Progress Through Collaboration
At Advarra, we believe a new approach – designed to promote connectedness, reduce system proliferation and costs, and create new efficiencies – is essential for the future of research. But we know the situation goes beyond just one vendor or one piece of technology— it will take an industry-wide effort.
Introducing the Site-Sponsor Consortium
This unique collaboration of leading research sites, life sciences companies, standards bodies, and industry organizations aims to leverage standards and seamlessly connect site-sponsor technology, addressing key inefficiencies currently experienced across the clinical research ecosystem.
Research Sites, Sponsors, CROs, and Industry Organizations
I’ve seen many collaborative initiatives over the years, but lack of site input or consistent standards has prevented any attempt from truly having the impact they promised. With their close partnerships across academia and industry, I believe Advarra is well positioned to take action.
What I believe makes this consortium unique and positioned for success, is its mission towards creating holistic efficiency by ensuring all impacted parties have a voice to drive solutions.
Successful collaboration across all stakeholders requires standards that provide a common language. By leveraging CDISC standards, it’s possible to amplify the full value of data to bring safe and effective therapies to patients who need them.

It’s Time for Sites to “Bring Your Own Technology” (BYOT)
The Bring Your Own Technology philosophy will produce synchronization between sites & sponsors, which improves both care & clinical outcomes.
