CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., Oct. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Monitorforhire.com, the fastest source for hiring independent clinical monitors, has made its service even faster. The company has added a mobile portal, enabling registered monitors to receive and respond immediately to work requests via PDA or cell phone using http://www.monitorforhire.com/mobile.
Scott Freedman, president of monitorforhire.com says that adding the capability will further reduce response times, enabling sponsors to staff their trials more quickly.
"We've enhanced a well proven model, by making it a true on-demand system for contacting and hiring clinical monitors," Freedman said. "By adding mobile phone and PDA access, we have real-time capability to instantly connect and staff trials in 36 hours or less."
Time lost organizing and conducting clinical trials can be costly. Current estimates of the cost of bringing a new drug to market range from nearly $900 million to over $1.7 billion. Goldman Sachs predicts that pharmaceutical R&D spending will increase seven percent per year from 2004 to 2009, due in part to longer R&D timelines needed to bring new drugs to market.
"Sponsors are looking for solutions that help them speed the process of bringing new drugs to market," Freedman said. "This is one more way that monitorforhire.com is helping them to do this."
