Atlantic Research Group Selects Comprehend Clinical

As part of its strategy to expand its services for global biopharmaceutical companies, contract research organization (CRO) Atlantic Research Group, Inc. (ARG) has implemented Comprehend Clinical for clinical data insights. A cloud-based platform offering the ability to generate analytics, dashboards, visualization and reporting from any data source, Comprehend Clinical enables ARG to improve clinical operations, increase trial effectiveness and enhance study team collaboration.

For the past 10 years, ARG has provided a range of services to agile and emerging biopharmaceutical companies. The company partners with sponsors in all aspects of the trial strategy, planning and execution – including all data management required to bring therapies to people who need them. ARG recognized an increasing number of its sponsor customers struggling to access and integrate data locked away in various systems and databases.

“In today’s competitive market, the sponsors that can easily analyze, report on and work with their biggest asset – data – will have a significant advantage. But they are all facing the costly and complex challenge of integrating systems to make that data accessible and useable,” said Hunter Walker, Chief Technology Officer, Atlantic Research Group, Inc. “Comprehend Clinical is the only tool available today that takes the pain out of the integration process and makes it easy for sponsors and CROs to delve into clinical analytics in a way that improves study performance and execution.”

ARG had already integrated Comprehend into its infrastructure and relies on the system to reduce costs by ensuring that clinical operations and study execution are as efficient and error-free as possible. The ARG human resources team also uses Comprehend data and analytics to measure staff quality and productivity and power a metrics-based incentive program.

Using Comprehend Clinical, ARG has already achieved productivity improvements and a measurable reduction in the number and difficulty of sponsors’ support requests. ARG study teams are impressed with Comprehend’s intuitive interface, easy setup and configuration and self-service support for sponsors.

“ARG is continuing to drive the industry forward, not only through its impressive portfolio of services and range of experience, but with its strategy around data integration and analytics,” said Rick Morrison, CEO and co-founder of Comprehend. “Like ARG, more and more innovative sponsors and CROs are recognizing that data warehousing solutions and one-off integrations fall short of delivering on the complex needs of today’s research sponsors.”

A related webinar hosted by Applied Clinical Trials will take place on April 24, 2014 at 12:00 pm EST. The web event will feature ARG CTO Hunter Walker leading discussion around ARG’s case study on the implementation of Comprehend’s SaaS-based clinical analytics solution. Paul Bishop, Managing Partner and co-founder of ARG will discuss the company’s overall strategic business vision to leverage data and technology, specifically how ARG leveraged analytics as a value added service for Sponsors. The ARG executives will be joined by Ben McGraw, Vice President of Marketing, Comprehend.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
