Clinical trial and research sponsors are valued partners who bring important support to studies conducted by CDH research teams. Collaborations and open communication with sponsors are crucial to a successful clinical trial program.
The Office of Research Support/Institutional Review Board at CDH assists researchers in the complexities of clinical research. We strive to improve quality of care and patient satisfaction by facilitating clinical research studies that are relevant in an ethical, caring, compliant, collaborative environment.
The Office of Research Support serves as the liaison between sponsors and CDH research teams. We can:
- Process confidentiality agreements on behalf of CDH
- Develop and negotiate study budgets
- Serve as liaison between sponsors and legal reviews of research agreements
- Process subcontracts
- Process study-related invoices to sponsors
- Handle research billing issues, Medicare part A letters, study payments to vendors
In addition, CDH has clinical research coordinators and support staff to assist principal investigators with the logistics of clinical trials.
