Clinical Trial Referral Networks
How It Works
While the number of clinical trials in Ukraine increasing and their efficiency and quality as well, patient recruitment and retention becomes more crucial.
The success of the trial depends on identifying the right patients for the study and their further engagement to invest their time and effort into drug development. Patient recruitment is considered to be one of the most difficult challenges and it is estimated that 80% of clinical trials do not meet their patient enrolment deadlines. hide
Besides, retaining patients is also a matter of concern, considering that the approximate dropout rate across clinical studies is around 30%. While the reasons for patient dropouts can vary and are often due to uncontrollable circumstances, in a lot of cases, dropouts can be predicted and thus prevented.
The above-mentioned challenges have led key players in the pharmaceutical industry to seek external support of specialized companies to expedite the patient recruitment and optimize patient retention processes.
We have developed multiple strategies to enhance patient recruitment and optimize patient retention in clinical trials using a patient-centered approach. A set of patient concierge services complements the service offering allowing easing the burden on patients and their caregivers during clinical trials as well as optimizes administration efforts of site staff.
