Specialty CNM Service Offerings

A Centralized Network Model (CNM): A Group of Independent Sites Functioning as One Synchronized Entity

Since 1991, CSS’ parent company Criterium, has operated as a complete services CRO. While we maintain a site database registry of over 3200 individual listings of PI’s and study locations across multiple therapeutic areas, we also manage oncology consortia in specific therapeutic indications.

Because sponsors sometimes have preferred provider arrangements with CRO’s, and want to work with the consortia we have organized, our subsidiary CORE Science Solutions (CSS) provides a centralized network model (CNM) to CRO, biotech, pharma and medical devices companies.

Clients significantly reduce their time and resources needed to evaluate and qualify a site or Principal Investigator, because we only present sites that meet study needs. We assign a Project Manager to a study to assist with early centralized communication. This increases efficiency by reducing the time typically spent answering repetitive site generated questions – the increase in efficiency is significant.
