Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 21, 2012
Quorum Review IRB is announcing an innovative subscription-based pricing structure. Subscription pricing will eliminate most challenges associated with budgeting for IRB oversight of clinical trials. The result of using Quorum’s subscription pricing will be studies that operate consistently within budget without the delays and hassle of amending budgets.
Budgeting for clinical trials can be complicated. It is difficult to predict the number of amendments that will occur or the amount of participant recruitment material that will be needed. This proactive pricing structure removes the guesswork in today’s clinical trial processes. “Some of our clients get caught in a cycle of budget amendments and task order revisions,” says Cami Gearhart, Quorum’s CEO, “with this new pricing model, an accurate budget can be established up front.”
Under Quorum’s subscription pricing clients simply pay a recurring monthly fee for each active site. The subscription fee includes unlimited amendments and recruitment services. Quorum’s optional safety mass mailing service may be included for an additional monthly fee per active site. This pricing option is available only to studies spanning 13 months or more in the field.
As the first and only IRB offering such a structure, Quorum is taking the industry lead in supporting their customers who use budget-based metrics to meet performance milestones. This latest innovation is a reflection of Quorum’s commitment to be the IRB to whom researchers turn -- when performance matters.
