    Episode 26: Research Isn’t Only for Academic Medical Centers (how clinical trials can benefit your patients and practice)

    Dr. Naresh Gunaratnam talks with Dr. Chris Fourment, CEO of Clinical Research Strategy Group about independent GI practices can develop or improve clinical trials infrastructure, which increases their ability to participate in clinical trials and allows sustainability of research as a practice ancillary.















    Dr. Fourment says some practices face challenges in getting buy-in for research and referrals from all the group partners. Other groups are challenged by the path to growth of the research department both geographically and in terms of infrastructure. CRSG has a proven track record in gastroenterology practices and can provide a tailored support option based on individual practice needs.







    Join Dr. Gunaratnam and Dr. Fourment to hear how developing a sustainable and scalable infrastructure can allow practices to spend less time on management and more time honing the effectiveness of their research program.
