The Spirit of Radical Integration





Patricia Leuchten, Founder and CEO of The Avoca Group, asked people at a recent pharmaceutical industry conference to raise their hands if they felt their company was ‘pretty good’ − not great, just pretty good − at dealing with the risks inherent in the clinical trial process.

Leuchten’s passion, and Avoca’s mission, is for an industry that now struggles to manage risks and design quality into clinical trials to develop a more proactive mindset and overcome communication gaps in bringing life-changing products to patients. As she puts it, “It’s the difference between putting out fires and preventing fires”. Clinical trials are, of course, never free of risks, especially with increasingly complex therapies, trial designs, and operating models. They all contain elements of the unknown that no amount of preparation can completely erase. However, risks can be proactively identified, managed, and mitigated, and that’s where Avoca comes in.
