PHILADELPHIA, PA — May 27, 2022 — Clario, a technology company that delivers the leading endpoint solutions for decentralized (DCT), hybrid and site-based clinical trials, today announced it has expanded its membership with The Avoca Group by joining its Avoca Quality Consortium (AQC). AQC is a collaborative that unites key industry stakeholders with the shared goal of elevating quality in clinical trials. As a member of AQC, Clario will work with sponsors and Contract Research Organizations, to continue to define and improve clinical trial quality.
“This is a huge opportunity for us to advance the level of quality in clinical trials,” said Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer, Matt McCarty. “We look forward to contributing our expertise while also learning from other member companies. Together, we can navigate industry challenges to deliver better quality solutions for partners and patients.”
The WCG Avoca Quality & Innovation Summit is the premier event that Avoca produces annually. This year, Dr. Johnson participated in a panel discussion with senior executives from Merck, Astellas, Eli Lilly and Amgen on Thursday, May 26.
“This session presented an opportunity for a conversation about how we as an industry define quality in clinical trials,” said Dr. Johnson. “Today, quality and trust must go hand in hand. This means, for example, we must consider the role that diversity and inclusion (D&I) plays in increasing trust in clinical trials. Testing a treatment on a diverse participant population is essential to achieving true quality data that can be trusted.”
