There are changes happening right now across Europe for medical device regulations regulatory authorities are asking for a lot more and a great variety of products. Also, there is a perception that the US regulatory process has become more difficult, and companies are acting by choosing to launch within Europe as it is perceived as a more predictable regulatory environment where they can work with CROs for a more local expert.

More than half of medical device companies are expected to hire additional employees to handle new business in the next year- teams are expanding indicating there is a huge delegate space to invite. Also, the lack of regulatory resources within organisations has prompted the move for smaller medical device companies to work in collaboration with CROs. 

Lastly, the global market for medical device outsourcing is predicated for growth over the next few years as brand owners increasingly transfer in-house manufacturing processes to third-party companies to streamline production costs and improve access to emerging markets. Service providers are meeting this demand by changing their models from functional to full service models instead.

Many organizations are currently outsourcing clinical trial activities to one or more contract research organizations (CROs). This strategy enables companies to leverage specialized expertise and take advantage of flexible resourcing throughout the conduct of a clinical trial. Outsourcing minimizes the costs of recruiting experts, building a team and maintaining an infrastructure. However, it can also add complexity as the organization looks to meets its compliance obligations regarding clinical trial documentation. The documentation referred to in Article 15(5) of Directive 2001/20/EC as the trial master file shall consist of essential documents, which enable both the conduct of a clinical trial and the quality of the data produced to be evaluated.1 This essential study specific documentation is also known as the TMF. As organizations try to minimize their reliance on paper files, the electronic TMF (eTMF) has emerged. A current industry initiative to standardize the organization of this content is known as the TMF Reference Model. This model is helping standardization efforts across paper and electronic systems. As companies implement outsourcing strategies, CROs and sponsor organizations look for a common foundation on which to build their TMF capabilities. The following paper outlines some of the challenges organizations face when outsourcing clinical trial activities to multiple contract research organizations and a strategy to facilitate partnering and management of trial information between sponsors and CROs.
