Rating for Clinical Trials and Mental Health Care

Rating for Clinical Trials and Mental Health Care Provided by the Largest SMO in Japan

A clinical psychologist, who is a specialist of psychology, bears social responsibility and requires knowledge and techniques including interview methods as a high-level professional, as well as “humanity” and a “sense of ethics”. EP-SOGO provides a sufficient number of experienced clinical psychologists who practice extensively as professionals to support the medical front line.

Rating for Clinical Trials

EP-SOGO dispatches an “Clinical Rater of Neuropsychology Test” involved in clinical research and trial to medical institutions

Although clinical research and trial in the psychiatric or CNS field requires administering rating scales, many medical institutions struggle to secure doctors and specialists of psychology who can be the raters.
EP-SOGO’s raters have advanced expertise and skills, and are familiar with the industry and works related to clinical trials. You can utilize them to make the operation more efficient and solve various issues related to efficiency, speed, cost, and data quality on execution of sponsor-initiated clinical trials.

Administering Rating Scales with High Quality

EP-SOGO provides rater trainings individually or as a group on a regular basis for how to administrate rating scales. Our raters with expertise and skills, backed by EP-SOGO’s high-quality education system and experience, administer rating scales. This will help to minimize inter-rater variations . Also, because EP-SOGO’s trained raters visit clinical sites just on the day of rating corresponding to a clinical trial, the drug efficacy and effectiveness can be evaluated without bias against the subjects.

Patient Support at Medical Institutions
