10 June 2021 | 6:00PM – 7:30PM Singapore Time

This Solution Provider Webinar is brought to you by DIA in cooperation with PRA Health Sciences

In this webinar...

PRA, as the original pioneers of the embedded FSP sourcing model, is now connecting these models with our project based CRO service model to create a customized, blended delivery solution that benefits our mid-size pharma customer partners.
The PRA embedded FSP solution enables the use of a consistent set of systems and processes across the clinical trial portfolio while allowing access to the scale economies more often reserved for larger Pharmaceutical companies. Whether your desire is to build a consistent, global operating model, establish a recognized global development presence or wish to retain your accountability to deliver your clinical trial portfolio, this solution offers a model that can address each of these important priorities. It’s a model than can grow and evolve with the customer as the customer grows and evolves with us.
This webinar will focus on The Evolution of the FSP/Embedded Model, and PRA’s experiences implementing successful blended FSP and CRO project based outsourcing strategies.
