Medical Monitoring

Building your success with strategic insight, knowledge, and experience

Medical monitors are physicians who get to know your project intimately as they are often involved from the initial study design through to the study close-out. From strategic guidance to resolving detailed issues, TFS HealthScience medical monitoring experts have robust academic, clinical, and product development experience and are key to successful study execution.

Critical role, core knowledge

Working closely with the site, the project team, and the client, the medical monitor is the expert point-of-contact for each. They oversee the integrity of the trial.

Medical monitors are responsible for assuring that the rights and well-being of human subjects are protected, that the trial data is compliant with the approved protocol, and that Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and other regulatory requirements are fulfilled. Then, once the study is underway, they assure the quality of the reported trial data: that it is accurate, complete, and verifiable.

Strategies driven by results

TFS medical monitors have provided senior oversight for medicinal product and device trials, phases I-IV for more than 20 large studies in the last five years covering 800 sites and 8,000 patients, including studies in the following key therapeutic areas in which TFS maintains in-house medical monitoring expertise globally:

  • Dermatology, Immunology and Inflammatory Diseases

  • Hemato-Oncology

  • Ophthalmology

  • Internal Medicine

  • Neurology

Why is it important to include a medical monitor in your clinical trial?

Medical monitors add specialist knowledge to the study, collaborating with the team and stakeholders, clearly understanding the objectives of the protocol and keeping the focus on the trial success.
