What is PROVIDE™?

PROVIDE™ Information Support Services are a unique resource for the scientific community. As the curator of information on over 4,000 Clinical Outcomes Assessments (COAs), the PROVIDE™ team gives you access to COA information, and supply the instruments and translations you require in order to succeed in your study.

Additionally, PROVIDE™ directly manages 500 COAs on behalf of developers through the Distribution Service.

Our services support all aspects of COA licensing requirements from information on COAs, licensing, to availability of linguistically validated versions.

In 2019, the PROVIDE™ team based in France and in the USA handled over 12,000 searches from (non exhaustive list): pharmaceutical companies, clinical research organizations, eCOA vendors, academic researchers, physicians, associations, and international organizations.
