IntegReview IRB and Verified Clinical Trials have developed a preferred partnership to stop dual enrollment in clinical trials and reduce protocol deviations while promoting safety. 
 
Research sites, CROs, and pharmaceutical sponsors will benefit from this alliance in an effort to stop dual enrollment in clinical trials and reduce significant protocol violations from occurring.
 
Verified Clinical Trials (VCT) is the leading North American research subject clinical trials database registry that not only prevents dual enrollment in clinical trials by research subjects but also helps avoid other significant protocol deviations in clinical research trials. By working together in a strategic partnership, VCT and IntegReview IRB have created a new workflow to improve and accelerate use of the VCT Authorization Form. Ultimately the process is designed to promote research subject safety and improve data quality. The new process employs VCT's research subject database at the research site level. The two companies have developed a research subject authorization form to be utilized by research site staff, when utilizing Verified Clinical Trials' services.
 
Verified Clinical Trials allows the research site staff to check multiple inclusion or exclusion criteria such as concurrent enrollment, prior compound exposure, half-life violations or current screening at another site immediately following consent and authorization form execution. IntegReview IRB offers a web-page on their company website for expedited review of the authorization form allowing easy access. This process results in both cost and time-savings.  Click here to gain access to the Authorization Form.
