WIRB-Copernicus Group has boosted its clinical trial management solutions business as it adds CTMS specialist Velos eResearch to its growing family.
The company will tap into Velos' internet platform solution, where it is able to streamline the management of institutional research by linking study status, patient enrollment, calendars, budgets, billing and electronic data capture by centralizing the management of research activities, the company said.
Under terms of the deal, Velos will continue to operate independently and will remain headquartered in Fremont, California.
WCG partners with 93% of the institutions—and 90% of the academic medical centers—that conduct research in the U.S., the company said.
“WCG is privileged to serve more than 2,800 institutions, and we are thrilled to empower them with technology solutions that will increase the efficiency of their research programs,” Donald A Deieso, WCG’s chair and CEO, said in a statement.
Last summer, WCG acquired KMR Group and Metrics Consortium in a deal that strengthened the company’s market insights and intelligence division.
