Early in her career, Rangel founded HUNT Services, a coalition of independent clinical research sites that she grew to the point of acquisition. Having managed that site network, Rangel is extremely proficient in clinical site operations. She also is an experienced global business development and operations executive with a 15-year history in the clinical research industry. Rangel recently served as Sr. Director, Global Business Development for Radiant Research/Synexus, the largest site network in the world.
"I'm thrilled to join the VirTrial team and to be part of a solution from a site perspective. Having been involved with a company that conducted over 14,000 trials, I know from experience that sites and patients are integral to the success of every project," said Rangel. "This is why VirTrial's vision is a hybrid virtual trial model, helping make clinical trials more convenient for patients and efficient for research sites," she concluded.
VirTrial acquired and customized a stable, award-winning virtual care platform and
customized it for clinical trial use to transform telehealth in the clinical research industry. VirTrial offers a post-approval management program that combines video, text, and email for clinical trial sites to easily, efficiently, and conveniently address specific patient and/or study needs. The platform can be used on any device and at any site.
The company vision is to replace 25-40 percent of standard clinical trial visits with virtual visits to create hybrid studies. This model is best suited for Phase III and IV studies.
