ICON's Value Add

The model deployed by ICON was based around a dual focus of building a solution that would provide long term, continued service delivery improvements and cost efficiencies, while also managing the short term requirement to protect the portfolio and retain critical experience. ICON partnered with the client to ensure that goals were understood across the study teams and that an effective change management plan was put in place to de-risk the transition process. Once the transition was complete, we combined our expertise with that of our client partner to drive system, process and technology changes that enabled more long term improvements.

Case Study

  • The ChallengeICON was contacted by a mid sized pharmaceutical company looking for strategic Data Management support in Europe and Asia Pacific. The requirement was to transfer Data Management support from in-house resources to an external resource pool while maintaining experience and geographic capability. The transfer process was to be completed with zero interruption to an in-flight portfolio of more than 60 studies. There were clearly defined targets to improve delivery across a range of defined KPI’s over a three year term
  • The SolutionICON co-located resources next to key client hubs in Madrid, Sydney and Tokyo, whilst client staff transfers were facilitated in each location. As programmes within the portfolio transitioned to ICON, key client staff were provided the opportunity and encouragement to transfer from client to ICON. Additional back-up staff were made available from within ICON, and a change management plan was deployed to ensure continuity of portfolio delivery as the key priority during the transition period. A long term process improvement plan was implemented to drive KPI improvement over the term of the engagement
  • The Outcome100 staff deployed to the portfolio within the first three months, 40% of which were transferred from client to ICON. All study milestones and deliverables were met on time no disruption to the portfolio during the transfer process. >90% retention of transferred staff during the initial 3 year engagement. 50% reduction in database build cycle time over three years. 70% reduction in database lock cycle time over three years. Engagement renewed and continues seven years on. We transitioned significant elements of portfolio delivery to India
