Medical Devices & Diagnostics

Clinical investigations to determine the safety and performance of medical devices and diagnostics pre- and post-market are of increasing importance. The design of these studies can range in complexity considering the classification of the device (Class II and III) and might require a range of approaches, from controlled, randomized and blinded clinical evaluations in a pre-market setting to non-interventional, real-world evidence and even retrospective designs as part of post-market clinical evaluation. Medical devices and diagnostics are often subject to continuous innovation and iterative development, and the Clinical Evaluation Report (CER) has become an essential regulatory requirement to document ongoing safety and performance throughout the lifecycle of medical device products. Understanding the goals of each clinical investigation is paramount in driving feasibility assessments to ensure the optimal country and site scenario.

Our Site Selection Approach

Site selection is a critical element of successful medical device and diagnostic development projects and programs. We base site selection criteria on four guiding principles proven to ensure complete enrollment according to predetermined timelines:

  • Predictability: The site should demonstrate a consistent track record of accurately forecasting patient enrollment, showcasing reliability in estimating the required numbers.
  • Enrollment: The site should exhibit a proven history of successfully enrolling the specified number of patients, demonstrating an ability to meet enrollment targets specific to device and diagnostic trials.
  • Retention: A hallmark of professionalism and diligence at the site is essential to ensure optimal patient retention, emphasizing the importance of staff commitment and procedural adherence.
  • Data Quality: The site should possess extensive experience, a qualified staff, and robust methodologies to guarantee the highest standards of data collection and management.
