Jim Murphy, CEO of Greenphire, discusses the company's role in addressing the financial lifecycle of clinical trials.  Greenphire works with sponsors, CROs, and research sites to automate and simplify payment processes, provide patient services, and remove burdens for patients and site personnel.  The aim is to improve patient retention and accelerate clinical development by streamlining processes from traditional manual methods to digital solutions that address budgeting, grant payments, and patient reimbursements.  

Jim explains, "There are so many solutions that address data collection points in clinical trials. We're not one of those. We're a company focused on solving more of the business problems of clinical research. For example, we provide workflows that automate and simplify the payment processes from sponsors or CROs to investigative research sites. We provide patient convenience services that enable and support participants to maintain their journey on a clinical trial, giving them reimbursements, travel support, logistics, and even reminders of certain things they need to do."

"When Greenphire got its start, sites were paying with cash and checks, and there was a cash box at a typical research site. Somebody would have to get the key and open it up and hold the patient there for another half hour. It consumed a huge amount of time for the study team. It's something that they can do in 28 seconds now."
