What We Do
Health Decisions provides efficient, high-quality clinical development services for sponsors of women’s health products as well as diagnostics and medical devices for all therapeutic areas. We have assisted sponsors in conducting many individual phase 1 – 4 clinical studies as well as in supporting programs from pre-IND and pre-IDE discussions through successful NDAs, PMAs and 510(k)s. We are committed to understanding each sponsor’s needs and preferences and tailoring our services accordingly. Our pledge is to embrace your development and business goals and serve as an extension of your project team.

Health Decisions offers the flexibility necessary to collaborate with sponsors based on their needs and preferences, utilizing the complementary strengths of both parties. For some sponsors, Health Decisions has supported development from the formulation of regulatory strategy through marketing approval. Our clinical, biostatistical and regulatory experts enjoy early engagement and the opportunity to add maximum value to development programs. However, we also perform specific roles such as protocol development, biostatistical analysis or data management on a Functional Service Provider model. Health Decisions welcomes the opportunity to discuss your needs and tailor our service offerings accordingly.
Agile Trial Management and Operations
Health Decisions utilizes a proactive, data-driven approach to trial management and operations. This approach relies on timely performance metrics and continuous decision-making. Each Health Decisions project team develops a comprehensive project management plan for each study, identifying risks and specifying mitigations, Key Risk Indicators and triggers for intervention. Project teams track progress closely, intervene at the first sign of an issue and refine project and risk management throughout each study. The agile approach to trial management and operations consistently delivers high efficiency and data quality to sponsors of Health Decisions studies.

Health Decisions provides sponsors with flexible global reach enabling them to conduct a global study in the most favorable locations without incurring overhead costs from nonparticipating regions and sites. We provide global agility through a combination of data-driven central management from the US with the regional experience, expertise and insight of carefully selected resources in each country or region. Primary project management and lines of communication from Health Decisions’ global headquarters in the US keep the sponsor current on the study as a whole and the performance of all sites regardless of location. At the core of Health Decisions’ global coverage is a strategic alliance for women’s health clinical trials with European CRO Comac Medical. Comac, with headquarters in Sofia, Bulgaria, operates in 24 countries in Western, Central and Eastern Europe.
