Our Site Network Reduced Costs and Monitor Travel Time

Case Study #3

Phase II COPD Study


Our sponsor approached us about testing with limited resources and a unique travel schedule. They needed to conduct 8 pre-study site visits requiring 4 trips to South Carolina from Arizona for an upcoming COPD trial.


VitaLink set up a comprehensive travel plan for the sponsor to fly into Charlotte, NC and travel to Atlanta, GA to observe each of their potential testing sites and meet with PIs to discuss needs for the study. Site staff were all able to review information for pre-study site visits together and streamline sponsor input. The intense preparation by VitaLink and ability to communicate within our network allowed for faster and more organized training for all sites.


The 3.5 day trip allowed our sponsor to accomplish all pre-site visits necessary and all sites were chosen to participate. Thanks to the internal communication of VitaLink sites, what may have been 4 separate trips was condensed to save time, energy, and budget for the sponsor.
