Business Continuity across the CRO/Innovator Partnership during COVID-19

“Never let a good crisis go to waste” – Winston Churchill

The value of pharmaceutical research and drug development has become increasingly relevant in the public debate, while paradoxically the community of scientists and clinicians collectively pursuing therapeutic and vaccine strategies for COVID-19 have had to work in increasingly constrained environments – managing spatial and temporal workforce challenges, supply chain disruptions, and workforce healthcare concerns.  The reciprocity of mutual success within the innovator (pharma, biotech, academia) and service provider (CRO, supply chain) community has been highlighted during the COVID-19 crisis.  Presumed temporary changes in business strategy (work from home; remote study monitoring; flexible resourcing) to accommodate COVID-19 realities offer an opportunity to create durable “best practices” that will test status quo approaches to drug development and marketplace partnerships.  This presentation will highlight learning and experiences being realized in today’s CRO/Innovator environment, that will strengthen business continuity planning for future crisis events, and more importantly, provide new approaches of executing work at a lower costs basis (efficiencies), with expedited endpoints (speed), and ultimately with more timely delivery of novel medicines to patients in need (world health).
