Clinical Development Outsourcing Models (3rd Edition)


ISR’s Clinical Development Outsourcing Models (3rd Edition) takes a look at user experiences with seven different clinical development outsourcing models:

  • Preferred Provider
  • Fee-For-Service
  • FSP
  • Hybrid Full Service and FSP
  • In-Sourced
  • Compound or Program-based
  • Sole-Source

Participants were required to have active roles in outsourcing to be included in this study. The data in this report, therefore, assists users in understanding which models the industry is using and how they compare to each other.
