Types of Research for the Pharma Sector

For medical and pharmaceutical industries we’ve mainly carried out the following types of studies.

In clinical trials we facilitate the job to medical and health personnel, dealing with the task of contacting the patient, both in the recruitment process and in subsequent follow-up (longitudinal studies ...).

We are experts at recruitment of specific patient profiles, based on the inclusion criteria required by the laboratory.

In follow-up surveys, we contact the patients in order to evaluate the effect of the medication and the development of pathology.

We save medical team from this jobs optimizing costs, for example by reducing incentives.

We have the capacity to carry out multinational studies because we have interviewers who speak multiple languages.

These studies are aimed to obtain consumption data from hospitals based on the information managed in the hospital pharmacy. It quantifies both the domestic consumption of the hospital (administered to inpatients) and the dispensing of drugs to outpatients.

The head of Hospital Pharmacy is normally the person who provides the information, although in some cases he can delegate to the deputy Pharmacist.
