2019 Avoca Industry Report: Clinical Outsourcing
Each year, The Avoca Group surveys industry professionals to understand trends in clinical development, with a particular focus on outsourcing dynamics and relationships between research Sponsors and Providers. This report summarizes key findings with respect to outsourcing trends and key relationship indicators, including analysis of the influence of specific performance attributes on levels of satisfaction.
In this year’s industry review, Avoca examined how Sponsors and Providers think about and manage quality in clinical trials. This topic is a continuation of research first conducted in 2011, and longitudinal comparisons of key variables are noted, where applicable.
- While a majority of clinical outsourcing spend goes to Full-Service Providers today, that trend is expected to shift in the near future – especially among larger Sponsors.
- Sponsor perceptions of satisfaction with quality are highly correlated with their ratings of satisfaction with the value, relationship, and the overall work they receive from their Providers.
- While Sponsors tend to see the FSP model delivering more favorably on quality than full-service, Providers have the opposite view.
