Rhea Anand, MPH. MS
Director Of Clinical Trials Operations 

Exposed to 10 years of experience in the healthcare industry, with a hands-down background in Phase I-3 -and PMS trials with medical device companies & Hospitals, I have successfully completed  years, running Clinical Trial Studies in 27 centers all over India, for a German Medical Device Organization in Cardiology. I have consolidated Contractual Research projects with pharmaceuticals, which allowed me to work on both prospective and retrospective studies ,Phase I and Phase II, in the field of Intensive Care Unit (Critical Care) & Cardiology. Being a core leader in  studies like Diabetic Retinopathy, RA, Constipation related, Biological sample stipulation, Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, Colorectal Cancer, NASH, and COVID-19 studies at multiple sites in the United States, I have helped build continuous quality implementation and initiated multidisciplinary decisions. 

 

Graduating from Monash University, Australia, built a solid foundation of research ethics within me. from Protocol development closely with the Sponsors/Investigators, Site feasibility check to Site initiation, Budget & Negotiations, Monitoring, and Ethics Committee regulations, I ensured smooth conduct of the study building my Project Management skills. I also hold a very diligent efficiency in terms of cross-functional communications to assure project timelines are met.

 

My core competencies have proven to be a great, enthusiastic team player, which provides 100% input to achieve the best of the outcomes. Since I belong to an Indian origin, my education from England and Australia has helped me diversify as a person, therefore adaptability & working with in-house and outsourced teams is my strong asset. 

 

Exercising important elements of a working system, as 70% of my job profile allows me to travel across the country, working with different team members in a different physical environment, it challenges my ability to analyze problems at each step. This strengthened my skills to diagnose problems quickly and more effectively as I confronted them all along. Having the passion for research and my energy and calming demeanor puts my team members at a great level of ease, to communicate, engage and collaborate in decision-making and goal achieving.

 

I look forward to implementing my  functional competencies in development and deployment of clinical solutions to support medical informatics, enabling delivery of patient care smoothly and advancing through Clinical Research Methods.
