Medical Writing

Industry-leading expertise

Our medical writing expertise spans a broad range of therapeutic areas and document types, from preclinical reporting through the drug development continuum to post-marketing and commercialization writing. 

Our writers develop documents from data sources in various analytic models for a variety of audiences, manage writing projects, and maintain consistency of style and message across multiple documents. They possess strong project management and negotiation skills and support projects with multiple customer contributors and external thought leaders. They drive timelines, organize and lead authoring meetings, and reconcile sponsor feedback across functions to create consistent, scientifically cohesive documents and minimize nonessential customer oversight.

As well as providing writing services for complete deliverables, we also offer flexible solutions for partnering with customers’ in-house writers to take on specific standalone document-related tasks, providing cost-effective solutions that remove the burden of routine medical writing tasks and allow our customers’ writers to focus on content development. 

All our solutions can be provided as part of full-service programs or as standalone solutions in a functional service partnership model.

We also have a strong quality review department that provides data integrity and editorial reviews for documents produced internally or those from customers’ own writing teams.
