horreum — our medical distribution centres are critical to the success of your decentralised and hybrid clinical trials

By September 4, 2023September 12th, 2023No Comments

horreum, mdgroup’s innovative medical distribution centres, introduced in 2021, play a pivotal role in the success of decentralised and hybrid clinical trials. These centres are thoughtfully designed and operated to meet the evolving demands of the clinical trial landscape.

Medical distribution centres are game-changing for DCTs

Decentralised and hybrid trials fundamentally alter the supply chain. Rather than sourcing and sending medical equipment, lab kits and other supplies to an established number of clinical research sites, sponsors and CROs require the items to be delivered to many healthcare professionals conducting mobile health visits across various countries or regions.

Our centres enable high-quality, regionally compliant medical equipment and lab, nurse, and patient kits to be delivered to global healthcare teams quickly and cost-effectively. This ensures teams are equipped and ready to perform all protocol-required assessments, collect all necessary data and respond quickly to participants’ needs.
