How we can help

We are experts in clinical trial management and patient engagement, spanning more than 55 countries and 65 languages.

We work alongside you and use our insight and experience to get under the skin of your study, identify your patient recruitment and retention needs, and propose solutions that work.

Our approach generates results: we have successfully enhanced patient recruitment for more than 150 clinical trials to date.

Responding to Covid-19

Globally, patient recruitment into clinical trials has changed. The industry is starting to reopen sites and countries to enrolment, however due to the impact of the pandemic, many sites may require additional support to achieve enrolment targets.

How can Innovative Trials help?

With over 10 years experience as a global provider of patient recruitment and retention services in over 50 countries globally, we have launched our Site Recruitment Needs Assessment. This new service has been developed to support the industry to establish a baseline of the site’s recruitment status, which takes into consideration how COVID-19 has impacted the patient recruitment funnel. 

Once newly discovered recruitment constraints at the protocol, patient and operational level are assessed, your site and study team will be equipped with site, country and global level insights to further optimise enrolment for the project. A recommendations report will be provided to get you started, however we are also able to come along on the journey to support the implementation of the plan.

What’s included in the Recruitment Needs Assessment?

Global strategy and planning

Bespoke global strategies to increase clinical trial patient engagement

We understand the challenges associated with recruiting patients into clinical trials and keeping them engaged throughout the research study. We use this knowledge to build comprehensive, bespoke strategies to increase recruitment and enhance the patient experience. And our global reach means we can implement these strategies in any country you need.

As part of this, our talented team can carry out:

  • protocol analysis
  • investigator market research
  • Investigator surveys
  • patient exit interviews

Site Insights

Using data to ensure the best patient experience from the start

We know clinical trial sites that are motivated and engaged have greater success with recruitment, which in turn drives study success.

We help you understand how your sites are performing to make sure they are providing the best experience for patients. We do this right from the start to help inform protocol design, during the research itself so that you can address any potential issues to keep your sites motivated, and at the end of the trial to inform your future studies.

Site Feasibility

Taking feasibility assessments to the next level

Our detailed one-to-one contact with sites allows us to collect richer feasibility data and more realistic recruitment targets.

Our services in this area include:

  • direct communication with study sites, including on-site visits if required
  • enhanced site selection recommendations
  • chart review and database mining
