“In creating the council, Vibrent Health incorporates the perspectives and needs of study teams of all sizes,” said Rachele Peterson, director of clinical research at Vibrent Health. “As a former director of research in a leading healthcare system, I have seen firsthand how the need for technology in the clinical research enterprise has grown. Clinical research is increasingly complex with the increasing number of stakeholders between sponsors, participants, study teams, researchers and regulatory requirements. The Board of Directors is a unique forum that invites clinical researchers to contribute to the important feedback loop that leading companies like Vibrent Health rely on to develop world-class solutions.
Board members come from a diverse group of healthcare and research organizations, including academic medical centers, Veterans Administration (VA), small regional hospitals, and health centers approved by the federal government, among others. They work directly with research teams and patients and offer a unique perspective on the technological needs of the research community.
