Survey Reveals Site Perspectives on Clinical Trial Services

Posted by Elizabeth Gargill on Tue, Dec 1, 2020

What do doctors and nurses think about solutions designed to make clinical trials easier to conduct? Are they helpful? Do they alleviate burdens? And which ones do they prefer?

In this special Pharma15 Live! segment, BBK Worldwide® industry experts Matt Kibby and Aaron Fleishman discuss recent Study Voices survey results that shed light on this topic. They examine doctor and nurse perspectives on services designed to provide support in conducting clinical trials — including services for virtual, hybrid, and decentralized clinical trials.

“We were looking at whether or not doctors and nurses at sites that were conducting clinical trials would appreciate different types of services that assist with their ability to conduct them."

Ready, Set, Go Virtual!

New virtual engagement solutions are delivering patients the convenience and immediacy they want in their healthcare experience. Solutions that support decentralized or hybrid trials, like BBK’s virtual RSG® Card, are helping to remove some of the barriers to clinical trial participation that patients cite as the most challenging.

As a matter of fact, in BBK's recent Study Voices 2020 survey, patients selected "immediate reimbursement for study-related expenses" as the most important solution influencing their decision to participate in a clinical trial.

Latest “Study Voices” Survey Finds Unexpected Similarities Between Healthcare Consumers and Clinical Trial Participants

Posted by Elizabeth Gargill on Thu, Feb 20, 2020

 

Survey Results Empower Clinical Trial Sponsors with New Opportunities for Patient Engagement

Our latest "Study Voices" survey challenges the long-held belief that the clinical trial experience should be approached differently than the healthcare consumer experience. The latest “Study Voices” survey – part of an ongoing series of surveys designed to shed light on key clinical research trends – explores patient attitudes towards technology,  healthcare affordability, physician access, transparency, and quality of care. It features responses from 2,067 individuals – 63% of whom identify themselves as healthcare consumers and 38% of whom identify themselves as clinical trial participants. The research was spearheaded by BBK's MythBusters team of Aaron Fleishman, Matt Kibby, Jessica Kim, Maddy Johnson and Elizabeth Gargill.

Patient Health Apps - Help or Hype?

Posted by Elizabeth Gargill on Wed, Nov 13, 2019

 

Last month, in partnership with Health Union, we surveyed over 200 patients on health app use. The findings not only dispel some common myths about app use, but they provide valuable insight that members of the clinical research community can leverage to enhance the design, development, and adoption of clinical trial engagement apps.

We recently sat down with Health Union’s COO and Clinical Business Lead, Lauren Lawhon, for a Q&A session to get her take on the survey results.
