Enrolling patients in clinical trials is both time-consuming and expensive. Between 2015 and 2016, the average cost for recruiting a single patient for a clinical study exceeded $6,500, while recruiting a new patient to replace a lost one cost an average of over $19,000. Patient recruitment constitutes 32% of clinical trial expenses, emerging as the primary cost factor in conducting such trials.

Delays in study timelines make these challenges even more daunting for sponsors of clinical trials. According to the National Health Services, over the five years studies in the United Kingdom have seen a 44% drop in participants recruited to commercial clinical trials. In an effort to overcome these shortfalls, sponsors are shifting their focus to patient-centricity. However, this can also be a challenge, especially when participants are dealing with therapies for chronic diseases, have intricate medical backgrounds, or have limited mobility.

Discover how patient enrollment and retention can experience better outcomes when these considerations are placed at the forefront of a study.
