BlueCloud Puerto Rico Mission Set to Bring Sustainability Outcomes to the Industry

To benefit the people of the region, BlueCloud and Puerto Rico Consortium for Clinical Investigation (PRCCI) collaborate to strengthen healthcare and clinical research standards.

BlueCloud by HealthCarePoint (HCP), a Texas-based healthcare and clinical research networking technology company founded by patient survivors began the collaborative effort to bring BlueCloud technologies to investigative sites for the purposes of clinical research readiness and economic opportunity for Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. With the support of the local Puerto Rican government, the cooperative of top academic and private research sites known as PRCCI, will act as distributor for BlueCloud Quality Management Systems and its DDIT mechanisms. The site network strategy will include the implementation of BlueCloud technologies which will enhance the educational opportunities, market visibility and quality of life for patients and clinical practitioners.

By joining the Global BlueCloud Network, PRCCI’s network of sites will be able to address:

  • Betterment of Puerto Rico’s population health – To keep up with privacy and regulations, Healthcare and clinical research professionals will be able to own their BlueCloud professional account where they can access their necessary protocol, training, career certifications and globally accepted standards of care from one, centralized and globally accessible location. Professionals and management can also opt to electronically share these documents for the purposes of demonstrating competencies. PRCCI will have dynamic access to the BlueCloud Education Network and its global providers of standards’ training and certification programs that professionals utilize to further their educational, certifications and globally accepted certification requirements and therefore better assist patient needs.
  • Promote Investigative sites within the PRCCI Site Network – Using BlueCloud Networking tools, PRCCI sites will be able to connect to global sponsors, CRO’s and universities to share and exchange professional and site-specific information and offer real-time site screening, improve study start up, increase study pipelines and ultimately help provide PRCCI site members with added sustainability.
  • Enable sponsors access to patient populations for clinical research purposes – Using BlueCloud Patient Mapping application, PRCCI will be able to demonstrate to sponsors and other organizations, the patient populations within each of the PRCCI network members for the purposes of clinical research development.
  • Bringing healthcare and clinical research innovation opportunities to patients in Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and PRCCI members – Patients will ultimately benefit with BlueCloud technology by expediting the product-to-market development process with Sponsors and CROs, thus enhancing access to more diverse populations.

Dr. Amarilys Silva, PharmD, PRCCI Executive Director, indicated that “BlueCloud Quality Management Systems are essential for PRCCI to bring additional capabilities such as standards of care to clinical practice and research. The BlueCloud technology will help us to maximize our options to connect with the global research ecosystem, enhance our local clinical research capabilities for the benefit of patients, the Puerto Rican economy and to support global innovation.”

“BlueCloud and PRCCI will help bring economic growth to Puerto Rico via global connectivity. BlueCloud’s global connectivity will enable clinical research sites in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, with a population of primarily Hispanic origin, to be identified by Sponsors, CROs and Universities to contribute to global clinical research and to increase representation of diverse populations in clinical trials. With industry stakeholders now being able to access the region and increasing clinical researcher training and capabilities, we are excited about the benefits patients will ultimately experience due to this effort,” stated Dr. Miguel A. Vázquez Padua, PhD, PRCCI Director of Operations and Business Development.

Al Pacino, President of BlueCloud by HealthCarePoint and Diversity Patient Advocate, explains – “BlueCloud Quality Management Systems are essential to improving the quality of patient care at the site level. Optimizing patient population and economic potential for Puerto Rico. By providing the necessary, sustainable infrastructure to connect sites to sponsors, CRO’s and universities to Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and PRCCI members in real-time we are able to improve the quality of life for the citizens of the region and furthermore continue our global mission to leave no patient behind. We are proud to help PRCCI’s mission to bring increased diversity to their sponsors and local economic growth to the region.”
