How Scimega Compares Where it Counts Most

Our unwavering strategic focus is to leverage our longstanding site relationships to secure exceptional levels of site engagement, leading to higher site and enrollment performance. This constant high performance is the cornerstone of our oncology trial success in Canada.
The majority of our work force have themselves been study coordinators with Canadian research centers, many of whom have worked along-side the Scimega team. And many of whom have participated in lessons learned & bring those valuable lessons at site level with them to Scimega. This results in a remarkably cohesive team with an in-depth understanding of what it takes to succeed, including applied knowledge of local policies, requirements, and particularities.
In our quest to promote Canada as a fertile region in which to conduct oncology trials, we must help guide our sponsors in making fact based or evidence-based decisions. This comes in the form of robust metrics compiled over a long period of time…in other words, reliable.

Proven Canadian Oncology Expertise for Your Phase 3 Study
Skill in navigating institutional and central/provincial regulatory pathways are critical when determining which sites are best suited to act as provincial or central applicant, a factor with considerable impact on activation timelines.
Site Contracts, Budgets Database & Metrics designed to expedite review and support our site payment process, archives information on the numerous agreements we have negotiated in the most recent 18-month period with valuable insights into sites’ typical areas of pushback and acceptable alternate language. Allows us to anticipate which sites are likely to push back and those inclined to expedite review. Key in trying to identify which site might be activated first.
Our template CTA is the product of over two decades of contract negotiations. Considered a key element to expediting the start-up process & maintaining site responsive throughout the course of a trial.
Vendor compatibility is guaranteed because we can’t live without it. 100% of Scimega’s business is focused on providing services for Canada in the context of international trials. Trials that involve at least one other CRO. As a result, our team has in-depth experience with multiple study teams, a wide-range of third-party study systems, tools and internal SOPs and processes, and our own SOPs are designed to optimize the synergy within a multi-vendor model.
We actively host and participate in joint governance committees particularly with Sponsors for whom we oversee more than one oncology trial. These committees track and assess higher-level risks to the trial and the Sponsor’s goals. They are governed by our MSA or a Governance Charter which is an operational document outlining the goals of the committee, its members, and the frequency of meetings. Frequency depends on the activity level of each individual study, and everyone’s level of comfort surrounding the associated study risks, and take place every 6 weeks to quarterly.
Permanent full-time, experienced oncology clinical trial professionals comprise Scimega’s entire study team. On average our CRAs possess 5 years of oncology experience and 6.5 years of clinical research experience. We do not hire consultants. Our employee turnover rate is lower than the industry which guarantees optimal continuity on projects we undertake.
