The site feasibility process is broken. The average clinical trial coordinator spends 264 hours a year completing feasibility questionnaires for sponsors. Yet 80% of clinical trial sites still don’t complete patient enrollment on time, and 11% of sites selected for a study never enroll a single patient.
In addition to being inefficient and inaccurate, site feasibility is often repetitive. Sites fill out nearly identical information not only for multiple sponsors, but often for multiple studies from the same sponsor.
So how can we make feasibility less time-consuming and repetitive for sites and less inaccurate for sponsors? These strategies could help:
- Help sponsors and sites collaborate on the site feasibility process
- Use data to project patient enrollment more accurately
- Create a unified site feasibility platform that sites and sponsors can access
In this article, we’ll break down what sites and sponsors need from site feasibility and how a unified site-sponsor platform can address these needs and improve collaboration.
