Sponsor of Choice

By Matt Kibby on Mon, Oct 30, 2017

In an age where patients have more choice about treatment options (just think about how the treatment guidelines have evolved for multiple sclerosis or rheumatoid arthritis in the last 10 years for example,) and more clinical trials are being conducted by fewer investigators, there has been a constant upward pressure on competition for clinical trial patients, even as sponsors and third party recruitment companies becomes more innovative and proactive in their approaches to marketing their trials.

The Power of mHealth in Clinical Trial Site Engagement

By BBKWorldwide on Tue, Mar 24, 2015

It’s widely reported that nearly 40% of sites fail to meet their enrollment targets and study timelines often end up doubling. Companies must look for new ways to optimize site and study operations, and capitalize on efficiencies through mobile technology to ensure optimal relationships with sites. Like the paper-based data collection methods of the past, paper-based site trainings and three-day investigator meetings are no longer enough to run successful sites and global studies. It is quickly becoming a mobile world and the Life Sciences industry must embrace and adopt technology that can help sponsors keep sites on track and on time.

The global operating environment for trials continues to become more competitive and complex. As a result, demand for new approaches and solutions to improve site engagement and patient enrollment has increased dramatically. Remaining at the top of the list, among the many other challenges sponsors face today is making sure sites have real-time access to the right study information and materials. Despite today’s increasingly competitive landscape, when the study community has what it needs to be and stay informed, the right patients enroll, and enrollment happens on schedule.
