Patient Recruitment Strategies: New Methods for Scale-Up and Eliminating Redundancies

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Pharmaceutical, Patient Recruitment & Retention,
  • Wednesday, September 12, 2018

It’s common for sponsors to conduct multiple clinical trials with the same compound. It’s also common for each of these trials to be treated as a stand-alone project – each led by a new study team empowered to choose the same or different vendors. And while some of these common practices are born of necessity, they often result in a series of redundancies.

One area particularly susceptible to such redundancies is patient recruitment. Creating basic elements like study branding, naming, websites, and the generation of patient and site materials takes time and effort – but duplicating this time and effort across multiple studies is an avoidable drain on resources that stretch beyond the immediate study, impacting legal, medical, regulatory, and a litany of other teams.

The truth is, many of these processes can (and should) be shared among studies in a strategic, streamlined way. New thinking around organizing a recruitment structure at a compound or indication level is rapidly gaining attention across pharma R&D. The result of this type of planning is a scalable process that allows sponsors to add studies quickly, with more flexibility, improved recruitability of patients, sites, and HCPs, all while reducing costs and time.
