We are CRO Consultants. The medical & clinical research space has unique challenges to make sure a project meets its endpoints. We specialize in finding, forming & training teams, especially in rare disease space & research projects in Latin America. Specifically, we solve enrollment problems with a concierge approach, including logistics, site performance, developing KOLs, conducting surveys, & bringing the right feedback as insurance for the results sponsors need in a patient-centric world.

There are several obstacles to make sure a project gets done:

  • Understanding the leadership of your team
  • Engaging the right players that influence a project's endpoints
  • Providing the right communication tools for the best performance, including the communication flow between Sponsors, CROs, Investigators, physicians, study coordinators, staff, suppliers, vendors & other partners
  • Ensuring good training
  • Identifying challenges through good feedback
  • Creating projections & strategies for pre-market milestones
  • Providing clear management objectives
  • Following proper procedures, monitoring & compliance

When problem solving to uncover why your plan is not working, or when making sure your plan is having success, you want the all of the patient centric programs in place. This can be from proper logistics management to understanding cultural issues or handling special populations, to vetting your team, or improving training.  Farmacon can plan & execute a tailored solution to get the job done.
