Sarah Boundy Wong & Vinny Podichetty: The CRO Selection Blueprint

Ep. 40

What are Contract Research Organizations?   For any Medtech company, working with CRO’s allow them to outsource work that would otherwise require significant capital to do internally.   CRO's let you avoid buying expensive equipment and hiring or training staff for a short-term project.  Having independent oversight is critical to ensuring compliance, keeping your clinical research trial on track and bringing your device to market faster.   For this reason, many companies hire a clinical research organization (CRO) to monitor, audit, and even manage their trial.  Medical device trials in particular bring complex compliance challenges, so having a CRO with specific expertise in this area can be tremendously beneficial.  How can you be sure you hire a medical device CRO that is committed to ensuring compliance and is as invested in your success as you are? 

In this episode of DeviceAlliance’s Medtech Radio, we speak with the Director of Regulatory Affairs at Inari Medical, Sarah Boundy Wong and Vice President Clinical Affairs & Market Dev. at JenaValve Technology, Inc., Vinny Podichetty.  Join us as we discuss the best-shared practices and methodologies for selecting a medical device CRO, where does one find CROs, the biggest selection considerations, and lessons learned from both of their professional experiences.
