Clinical Trial Sites: The Rise of the Mega Network

  • Wednesday, April 10, 2024

Join this webinar for a discussion of recent trends in clinical trial site network consolidation.

The latest eBook, “The Rise of the Clinical Trial Site Mega Network” is the third installment in the “Scaling and Innovating” series by CRIO. In the first book in this series (published in 2019), CRIO predicted that clinical research site networks would continue to grow and consolidate the industry. In the second eBook (published in early 2023), the authors demonstrated a remarkable increase in the number and breadth of institutional investors. Finally, in late 2023, Raymond Nomizu and Colin Sholes co-authored the eBook “The Rise of the Clinical Trial Site Network,” which shared an analysis of data from the Sunshine Act and This analysis showed a sharp increase in the consolidation of private sites in the United States.

The speakers will share insights into:

  • An overview of the data analysis from the eBook
  • The increasing role of private sites and site networks in clinical research
  • Factors driving this consolidation of sites into larger networks
  • How this consolidation will impact clinical trials, and what this means for sponsors, CROs, sites and patients
