  • Avant Research is a network of private research facilities conducting Phase I through Phase IV clinical research with a focus on pharmaceutical, device and HIT trials.

     

    Our combined locations treat between 5,000-7,000 patients per week, and are dedicated to conducting the highest quality research.

     

    We combine medical expertise with a strong clinical research foundation to ensure that each project exceeds the industry's expectations.

  • Key Strengths

    Better Processes.  Better Systems.  Better Results.

    400,000 Patients and Growing

    Execute trials without the marketing spend

    With our 400,000 active patients representing 5,000-7,000 visits per week, centralized searchable databases and copyrighted proprietary processes, we have a proven track record of rapid subject recruitment, often without having to resort to marketing or tapping into advertising budgets.

    The Highest Quality Standards

    Quality, accuracy and completeness above all else

    We are dedicated to conducting the highest quality research.  Avant provides medical expertise with a strong clinical research foundation to ensure that each project exceeds the industries’ expectations.

    Consistency Across Sites

    And flexibility to adapt to sponsor's needs

    Avant has pioneered technology and copyrighted processes that allow us to run every Avant site with the same set of quality measures and controls. This "central command" approach also gives us the flexibility to adapt to sponsors' needs quickly. Sponsors gain from the efficiency of a single point of contact and single set of processes across multiple sites.

  • We Leverage Technology, Systems and Processes Across our Network of Sites

     

    • Dedicated research space, staff and equipment
    • All staff certified in CITI and NIH, including in-house centralized staff, who are available to assist on-site at all locations as needed
    • Avant ClipChart™ ensures highest level of consistency; Six Sigma initiatives ensure minimal defects
    • Collective 200+ years of investigator experience
    • Proprietary technology and copyrighted processes 
    • Comprehensive collection of diagnostic equipment, allowing us to accommodate even highly specialized trials
    • Centralized warehouse of backup equipment that can be shipped to any location within 16 hours, minimizing interruption in study progress and patient care

  • Our Company

    We Love What We Do.

    The Avant team blends experience at the highest levels of clinical trials and healthcare with the enthusiasm of new-to-research employees. Everyone on the Avant team is 100% focused on the success of our programs and our clients' success.

     

    Part of one of the fastest growing healthcare services companies in the country, Avant's solutions combine technology with proprietary processes and a keen understanding of the needs of trial sponsors, sites, and subjects.

     

    We have a consistent track record of delivering immediate and lasting business value for our clients and an expanding roster of highly satisfied clients. We feel we've grown the right way: through word of mouth, by unsolicited referrals, and on the reputation we work to earn every day.

     

  • For Physicians

    60% of patients want their doctor to be a source of clinical trials, and 72% say they would likely participate in one if their doctor were involved. So it's not surprising that physicians who offer trials are consistently rated higher than those who do not.


    From a business perspective, becoming a clinical trials investigator can create a revenue stream which – critically – is diversified in that it is NOT derived from government or insurance reimbursement.

     

    What's more, 95% of patients who participate in research studies have insurance. 

     

    Getting started in clinical trials on your own is difficult and time consuming, and managing trials in your practice effectively is even harder. It can take 5 years and $500,000 in start up costs to get your research site functioning.

     

    Find out how, for qualified physicians, Avant turn-keys trials for you – from start-up to studies, and everything in between – and takes on 100% of the operating budget. Or, learn about our a-la-carte services designed to cost-effectively get you started or improve your existing research program.
