Clinicians within primary care and in private clinical practice collaborate with Santium on test selection for minimizing differential diagnoses, improved treatment monitoring and outcomes.
Santium collaborates with clinical researchers and delivers instruments for measuring drug effects in clinical trials. We support medical affairs in monitoring adherence to treatment in observational studies, and quantify treatment outcomes used to justify the value of medicines.
Santium works with international policy makers, and their contractors, measuring effectiveness and outcomes of clinical treatments and their impact on patients’ and caregivers’ quality of life across a range of therapeutic areas.
Santium has a well established network of copyright owners and exclusive licensors, comprised of publishers, individual authors, academic institutions, non-profit organizations and industry-focused work groups. We utilize the network to deliver efficient and budget-friendly services. They utilize Santium to validate and/or promote their instruments.
A range of services providers from across industries aim to improve their value by utilizing Santium to obtain best suited data collection instruments, to build and validate new questionnaires, and to gather industry knowledge for unfamiliar markets. They include consulting firms, contract research organizations, technology developers, rater training, translation, marketing and other data collection companies.
Whether you’re instrumenting for routine clinical practice, inpatient treatment plan, a clinical trial, or an outcomes research study, we will help you find the right measures. We’re familiar with hundreds of scales; not only from a fundamental psychometrically-driven and utilities-based points of view, but also from a clinical research rating point of view. Different animals, we understand! We know – and will teach you – what to look for and how to critically evaluate a rating scale for your specific purpose. Even if you need training on particular test, we’ll recommend the perfect fit.
Let us do it. Save time and resources. We will support you with project planning, getting it off the ground, monitoring progress, data collection and analysis, and timely completion. Why use the team that is already tasked with other activities, stretch out their task lists and risk delay in completion times? All you need to do is to conceptualize what you want to do. We handle everything else, including vendors.
Your internal culture, nature of business, external regulations (if any), internal processes, and purpose for the work you want to do governs the way the work will get done. We know the methods of project management intimately well – we’ve been doing it well for thousands of hours. But we do not prefer one tactic over another. All we care about is what will work for your project, team, and your company.
Your business is our business when we work together. Open minds, open concept, open and candid communication, and tactical cohesion. We’ll value what you have to say. We’ll expect the same from you. That leads to a better alignment. There is much to be done, and we are here for the long haul.
We’ve been working with authors and publishers for over 15 years. We’re their conduit to unfamiliar users who need their tools. We do a lot of what a test developer does; we do a lot of it for them. We help make their intellectual property useful within specific user groups, and internationally acceptable. We acquire new tests, modify existing tests, validate them, license them, coordinate peer reviews, monitor use, and promote them. We have rooted relationships with owners of instruments that you use and others. We have no commercial interest in promoting instruments, and no competitive boundaries on what we can recommend to our clients.
It’s your project, and where you need us is ultimately your choice. We’ll pipe up and tell you what we think too. Certain projects are better managed on site, with face-to-face time with your team and immersion in your business and strategic plans. Others are equally efficient in being completely virtual. But in the end, you win!
