Seattle, WA (PRWEB) September 05, 2013

Quorum Review, IRB, the industry leader in central IRB services, announces a strategic alliance with Consent Solutions, a developer of internet-based multimedia systems for informed consent in the clinical trials industry. Through the alliance, Quorum Review and Consent Solutions combine and leverage their extensive experience and knowledge to provide an improved informed consent experience.

The alliance demonstrates Quorum Review’s and Consent Solutions’ commitment to enhance the research process, especially as the healthcare industry increasingly adopts electronic data systems. Working together, Quorum Review and Consent Solutions provide an intuitive and effective electronic consent option that meets industry and IRB regulations and standards.

“Quorum Review is excited to work closely with an eConsent provider who understands our industry so well,” says Cami Gearhart, JD, CEO of Quorum Review. “We believe our customers will benefit from this alliance as the healthcare and human research industry move further toward electronic data management.”
