Colpitts Clinical has deep roots in the travel industry, and we are pioneers in dedicated clinical trial travel coordination. From our founding as a division of our namesake, Colpitts World Travel, to our new beginning as a Direct Travel company, we have played a role in more than 1000 clinical trials worldwide and continue to adapt to meet the ever-changing needs of clinical trial sponsors, CROs, sites and most importantly patients.
Colpitts Clinical is one of the only full-service travel and expense management providers dedicated specifically to seamless patient-centric planning and support for travel to clinical trial visits. Headquartered in Norwood, Massachusetts, Colpitts Clinical has offices throughout the United States, Canada, as well as offices in the U.K., and with Direct ATPI Global Travel offices throughout the world. Colpitts Clinical has the ability to deliver solutions customized to the needs of its biotechnology, pharmaceutical and CRO clients, while providing cost control for trials and ensuring regulatory compliance.
Backed by more than 130 years of travel industry experience we pride ourselves on exceeding the client’s expectations. We were one of the first to provide clinical patients’ care, beginning more than 20 years ago.
Our philosophy is to meet every challenge and exceed expectations throughout every phase of the trial – from site set up to financial reconciliation. We help eliminate barriers to trial participation and significantly increase patient retention through patient-centric services and personalized support. All logistics, from air ambulance charters to family friendly, long-term accommodations, are handled in-house by a team of GCP certified, HIPAA and GDPR trained, Colpitts Clinical’s Travel Coordinators, dedicated to each trial. The Colpitts Clinical team personally customizes every aspect of the patient’s itinerary, creating a seamless, low-stress travel experience throughout even the lengthiest clinical trials.
