With ICRC-Weyer GmbH, yet another CRO has joined the growing community of life sciences businesses to engage in social media. The decision was made as a pro-active move to disseminate clinical research information to a focused audience. “We are planning on increasing our efforts on these platforms, especially in regards to discussion boards and special interest groups” says Simone Ahrens, a Managing Director & Director of Client Relations at ICRC-Weyer. “However, there is a lot more to share with the clinical research community, e.g. via academic institutions, and even to an audience that might not be directly related to the industry – yet. Social media networks such as Facebook and Google Plus provide the platforms to build and engage with these communities on a more personal level.”
The German CRO has chosen the services of Quadratek Connect due to Quadratek’s expertise in the fields of IT services as well as clinical research and online patient recruitment. The company also provides electronic data collection systems for clinical trials and real-time data visualisation for other software solutions within the life sciences and healthcare industries.
Alistair Bradbrook, Director at Quadratek Connect, says: “We are very happy to welcome ICRC-Weyer to our select group of clients from the life sciences industry. It is a great pleasure for us to support the CRO in its efforts to take a pioneering role within the clinical research community by building and maintaining their presence on the social media networks.”
Initially, the collaboration will focus on establishing a social media strategy which is the basis for the setup and monitoring of all profiles on the large social networks chosen by ICRC-Weyer. The CRO now has a presence on LinkedIn, Facebook, Google Plus and Xing.
