A dedicated team from the required functional areas and a project manager as a single point of contact are assigned to each project. These teams work in a cross-functional manner such that the entire clinical trial process is controlled and integrated from the initiation of the research sites to the delivery of the final clinical summary reports. For example, starting with development of the protocol itself, statisticians, programmers and data managers are included in the review cycle to insure that the appropriate data are captured and the analysis is carried out as specified.

This integrated team is comprised of individuals who take ownership of their assigned responsibilities and a leader, the project manager, who coordinates their efforts and is the liaison between the team and the client. This effectively led coordinated proactive team insures that key milestones and project time lines are consistently met.
