Patient Centricity
5 Ways To Expand Racial And Ethnic Diversity In Clinical Trials

Between 2000 and 2020, nearly 80% of clinical trial participants were white. The underrepresentation of diverse racial and ethnic groups is not new, but we must do more to address disparities. Here are five strategies for action.

Commitment To Patient Centricity And Diversity: The Key Ingredients

A patient-centric approach results in trial participants who are more likely to both consent for and complete a clinical study. Read more about recent changes in industry requirements and some of the important patient-centric techniques and strategies that are gaining visibility across the industry.

Patient Recruitment
How CVS, Walgreens, And Walmart Will Improve Clinical Trial Recruitment

The patient access capabilities of all three organizations may change the way drug developers access patients while also solving the patient diversity problem.

How Call Centers Can Improve Patient Recruitment And Retention

Do you recruit patients for clinical trials? If the answer is yes, then how do you reach potential participants? Call centers can be a great resource for patients not only in the recruiting process but also throughout the clinical trial.

Minimizing Hurdles For Patients During The eConsent Process

The proliferation of both patient-centric and hybrid clinical trials has created a need for more individualized, simplified, accessible processes involving trial participants.
