CEO & C0-Founder
While running a research site, Barry Lake became frustrated with the manual methods and inefficiencies of managing his trial pipeline and study startup workflows and the inability of any existing software to go beyond traditional CTMS to enable the capture and analysis of performance metrics to differentiate one site from the next. Finding no solution, Lake became CEO & CoFounder of Devana Solutions, whose “category-defining” PROPEL SaaS products help sites automate pipelines, manage study startup workflows and capture, analyze and report on site performance-metrics. In tandem with CTMS, PROPEL is fast becoming “mission critical” software for the world’s leading site networks. During COVID, Devana didn’t just talk about DCT, they built it. PROPEL Enterprise leverages the power of the cloud to allow centralized clin-ops professionals at site networks, CROs or sponsors to connect and collaborate with decentralized site-based clinicians, across the globe. Devana’s latest proprietary innovations include MATCH, set to be released in 2024 to drive greater efficiency in feasibility and site selection and across the continuum of study startup and trial execution by uniting all stakeholders – site, CRO and sponsor – on a common cloud allowing Devana to fulfill its critical mission of speeding therapeutic advances to patients in need.
