Patient & Site Solutions Center
One of the most difficult tasks of conducting a clinical trial is the study startup process. That process includes a feasibility study to determine if there are sufficient patients to meet established inclusion and exclusion criteria, site selection, and patient recruitment.
Research has shown that as many as 85 percent of trials fail to meet enrollment timelines and 80 percent fail to finish on time. Additionally, 50 percent of sites selected to participate in studies recruit one or no patients.
Patient recruitment firms and technologies are available to help sponsor companies locate patients for studies. Technology tools such as eDiaries, text reminders, and remote monitoring tools can ease the burden on patients and increase retention rates. Additionally, there are technology tools that notify sponsor companies if and when a patient takes their trial medication. AI and machine learning solutions are also available to mine EHRs and EMRs to locate patients meeting inclusion/exclusion criteria, or to search sites to determine which ones are best suited for a trial.
