Members of the Advarra team speak at research conferences throughout the year, interacting with folks from both the sponsor side and research administration side of the industry. Recently we spoke with a senior level individual at a leading device manufacturer—we’ll call him “John”—who explained that from his experience, when organizations integrate their research admin functions, it often leads to increased access to new research opportunities, allowing them to build a more expansive research enterprise.
He described a “Tale of Two Health Systems,” one with a centralized research administration and one without. John’s story taught us a few things, and we’re sharing it here in case it helps others in the research community.
