Clinical Operations Division

At Concentrics, our staff has conducted over 800 projects in a wide range of therapeutic areas. We perform Phase II-IV clinical trials and actual use trials for Rx-to-OTC Switch programs in both prescription and consumer populations. Nearly 65% of our work is in the customized Phase IV area related to health outcomes, quality of life, new indications, claims, head-to-head comparisons, post-marketing surveillance, safety monitoring and long-term tracking studies.


Regulated Healthcare Market Research Division

Our Regulated Healthcare Market Research Division is talented in designing and conducting custom qualitative and quantitative research. Our research includes comprehension testing on labeling, patient brochures, instructions for use, patient leaflets and education. In addition, this group is responsible for designing and conducting studies for REMS (risk evaluation mitigation strategy) requirements, concept evaluations, attitude and usage, claims support, and product testing with consumers, patients, healthcare professionals and caregivers.


Rx-to-OTC Switch

With over a quarter-century worth of expertise, no service provider has more experience in regulatory strategy development, program design and execution. Concentrics has worked on more than 75% of the successful Switch programs and have excellent, working relationships with CDER, CDRH, CBER, NIH, CDC and CHPA. In addition to our regulated healthcare market research services we perform self-selection studies, special population studies, actual use and post-launch studies for Switch programs. We are experienced recruiting special populations such as consumers of lower literacy and those with special medical conditions.


Pre-Approval and Post-Approval Integrated Research

Our company is unique, in that we have two distinctly different and separate divisions within the same facility. The two divisions, Clinical Operations and Regulated Healthcare Market Research, operate independently when needed and often work together on studies that include both clinical and market research endpoints. This hybrid capability allows us to capitalize on early market insights, minimize timelines, and enhance commercialization efforts.
