CRPN serves clinical sites to ensure they have everything they need to perform quality clinical research - when they need it.

A great divide between healthcare and research industries lies in financial misinterpretation. Most of the healthcare industry does not speak the research industry's language of fixed contracts, legal agreements, and invoices. Rather, healthcare more readily understands adjusted fee schedules, insurance claims, and payer mixes. Consequently, new generations of physicians are discouraged from researching and clinical sites are closing permanently due to catastrophic financial dysfunction.

The Clinical Research Payment Network (CRPN) offers a financial solution that translates clinical research environments into business practices that are routinely accepted by the healthcare industry. As a result, CRPN empowers physicians and clinical sites to perform research without the current financial stresses of the industry. Our streamlined financial models also allow sponsors and CROs to focus on the proper management and quality of trials in lieu of cumbersome financial obstacles.


CRPN will empower efficient translational research by aligning the clinical research industry's financial compensation models with the needs of healthcare environments. Together, CRPN, its partners, and its members will bridge the financial gaps between research and healthcare environments, improve current and future patient care, and advance medicine as safely and efficiently as possible.  


CRPN’s concept was founded by Dr. Daniel Fox, who as a Director of Clinical Research with global pharmaceutical development experience, observed significant financial disparities between the clinical research industry and a healthcare environment. If we can resolve our industries' financial differences, sites no longer have to develop and maintain tailored clinical research billing systems, physicians will be paid timely and remain motivated to participate as active investigators, sponsors will execute, perform, and complete research in record time, and innovative therapies will ultimately translate to patient care with greater efficiency and quality. 


CRPN’s executive team comprises years of experience in managed care, clinical research, and demonstrated leadership:

Dr. Daniel Fox is a translational scientist with almost 20 years of scientific experience and over 15 years of  administrative leadership experience ranging from small biotech startups to global pharmaceutical program management. Daniel has successfully led and administered research operations in academic, industry, pharmaceutical manufacturing, sponsor, and clinical research site environments. He is also the co-founder, president, and current CRO of a 501(c)(3) autism nonprofit association.

Daniel holds a Masters Degree in Public Health and PhD in pharmacology and neuroscience from Southern Illinois University. He served as a manager and auditor at a military site during his post-doctoral studies to assess the safety and efficacy of pharmacological otoprotectants in drill sargent trainees. Following his post-doctoral studies, Daniel traveled to the east coast to manage small biotech development, ventured to the west cost to work in pharmaceutical manufacturing at the global manufacturing organization Catalent, and finally returned to the midwest where he administered clinical trials for the second largest multi-specialty clinic in the state. Daniel resigned as a director of research at a single site to focus full time on developing CRPN as the industry standard for clinical research business compliance, accountability, and professionalism.
