Phlexglobal Partners with PRA Health Sciences to create the Global TMF Center of Excellence

Fit-for-purpose eTMF SaaS software and expert services strengthens PRA customers’ confidence that their Trial Master File is compliant and inspection-ready from plan to archive

Amersham, UK; Malvern, PA. — September 23, 2020 

Phlexglobal announced today the successful creation and implementation of the Global TMF Center of Excellence with partner PRA Health Sciences (NASDAQ: PRAH), one of the world’s leading global contract research organizations. By leveraging Phlexglobal’s industry leadership in eTMF technology innovation and authoritative expertise in Trial Master File best practices, PRA continues to ensure that its customers achieve and maintain lasting TMF compliance – in accordance with rapidly evolving regulatory mandates.

Given the increasingly critical role played by the Trial Master File for supporting Good Clinical Practice (GCP), audit and inspection preparedness, and streamlined submissions, PRA conducted a comprehensive, multi-round review of leading TMF providers and chose Phlexglobal after a competitive bidding process. Building and implementation of PRA’s fit-for-purpose TMF Center of Excellence solution commenced shortly after the project award was given in early 2019.

“Setting the standard for industry best practices, PhlexGlobal’s eTMF solution is designed for CRO and sponsor collaboration, which provides our customers with TMF visibility throughout the life of a project,” said Barb Hoff, Vice President at PRA Health Sciences. “PhlexGlobal’s TMF system is a market-leading technology that sets the standard for inspection readiness. The partnership with PhlexGlobal has provided PRA with valuable counsel and insights so that we are able to achieve the right alignment of people, process and technology to efficiently manage TMF health and enhance our business offerings.”
