Patty Leuchten, CEO and Founder of Diligent Pharma, Receives 2023 Vistage Lifetime Achievement Award

We are thrilled that Patty Leuchten, CEO and Founder of Diligent Pharma, was recently honored with the prestigious 2023 Vistage Lifetime Achievement Award. This esteemed recognition, awarded at the Vistage Executive Summit, celebrates Patty’s remarkable leadership and unwavering commitment to achieve extraordinary results. Here, we explore the meaning behind this award, shed some light on the support Vistage provides, and hear Patty’s heartfelt thoughts on reaching this incredible milestone.

January 11, 2023 – We have just added three new Request for Information (RFI) templates to the Diligent Platform to enable clinical trial sponsors to qualify providers of IMP management services, mobile biomarker sensors, and mobile respiratory sensors. These latest RFI templates meet the requirements of global regulations and are based upon the most recent qualification standards developed by the WCG Avoca Quality Consortium.

Like the other service-specific RFI questionnaires in the Diligent Platform, the new RFI templates for IMP management, mobile biomarker sensors, and mobile respiratory sensors will be used alongside the Core RFI questionnaire to identify all the information needed for a comprehensive evaluation of these service providers.

“I was honored to receive this award and am accepting it on behalf of the talented colleagues who I have partnered with in our efforts to drive positive improvements in clinical trials. While I appreciate this lifetime achievement recognition, my work is far from completed. I look forward to and am excited about what we’ll accomplish next as a team.”
