Helping You Create a Healthier World by Engaging Patients and Supporting Sites
Your patient recruitment and retention strategy should flex to fit the needs of your study, not the other way around. Our Patient Engagement Services team will build a personalized solution from the ground up that meets the milestones and challenges of your individual clinical trial.
Our experts know that great recruitment and retention strategies must support sponsors, sites and patients while multiplying value and maximizing impact. Our global network of trusted investigators, high-performing sites and deep patient databases along with a myriad of customized services help accelerate enrollment, sustain retention and ensure your study starts – and stays – on time. And because clinical trials are increasingly complex and dynamic, your study will have a back-up mitigation strategy securely in place.
Reaching enrollment goals and maintaining retention are some of the biggest difficulties your clinical trial will encounter. Don’t let a weak strategy slow your study down. Work with the team that will build a strong strategy as specialized as your clinical trial.
Patient Engagement Strategies
Customized Solutions Sponsors Can Rely On
Your clinical trial deserves more than the typical cookie cutter approach to patient engagement. We balance the art and science of patient engagement strategy to create a customized, phased approach that will deliver the right results for you.
From a data-driven starting point, we implement the best technology and resources to locate patient densities, deploy experienced sites and report on KPIs. Then we go beyond the technology and roll up our sleeves to do the creative investigative work required to recruit the right patients. Once your clinical trial is underway, we continue to work to ensure that patients are retained, and sites are supported each day for the entire duration of the study. By mapping the site and patient landscape, we create a strategy that delivers support for both sites and patients to optimize the enrollment environment of your study.
Supporting Sites From Startup To Study Finish
Study sites and the patients they serve are your clinical trial’s most important assets. We make it our mission to ensure that sites have the best tools and resources to assist patients and streamline day-to-day clinical trial work, and this is why we always bring a site and patient centric approach to our planning and recommended strategies.
Based on your study and patient population we will work with you to deploy educational aides and patient recruitment tools that are appropriate for the country and specific site being engaged. Our CRAs on the ground work with the sites directly to determine which assets provided or available will best position that site for study success by creating that optimized enrollment environment. Also, because each CRA is empowered to resolve problems and execute site-specific strategies, your site receives personalized attention to help provide solutions for things like screening support, patient travel or patient recruitment.
Our strategy of working with our feasibility team to locate the best sites for your clinical trial and then providing those sites with the customized assistance, tools and resources they need positions your clinical trial for success.
Empowering Patients to Take Part in Your Study
The best patient recruitment and retention strategy for your clinical trial will accommodate more than just milestones. It will also factor in the patients behind the numbers. We build our strategies to provide the best possible environment, optimized for patient engagement and recruitment.
Every study is different and every patient population requires its own unique engagement and retention strategy. Our team begins by delving into the patient perspective so that your study’s strategy is customized down to the participant level. We proactively account for factors that may inhibit enrollment or retention such as illness symptoms, caregiver challenges or study concerns. Patient advocacy groups often play a key role by providing important information vital to proper strategy execution and consideration of patient concerns.
“The recruitment challenges were considerable, and we asked Pharm-Olam to double their enrollment numbers half way through the trial and still meet the original timelines. The team successfully met this challenge."
