Site Optimization

We work with you and your sites to accelerate patient recruitment

Innovative Trials supports your clinical trials with a wide range of clinical site optimization services conducted by our team of Clinical Enrolment Managers (CEMs).

Are your clinical research sites doing all that they can to give trial participants the best possible experience? It’s not always easy to know what keeps patients motivated during a trial, and we know that investigators are busy with limited time to think about it. We understand how costly a delay in patient recruitment can be, as well as the consequences of such delays. For these reasons, we work side-by-side with your sites to identify and coordinate the best patient recruitment and retention strategies for your study. We make sure that your sites can focus on clinical operations while accelerating patient recruitment, ultimately meeting or exceeding your study targets and milestones.

Clinical Enrolment Manager (CEM) Network

Working across 70 countries and 65 languages

Our CEMs are experienced clinical research professionals, who take the time to understand the trial design and architecture of each site. They cover around 70 countries and can work with investigators in their local language, either over the phone or in person.

Our CEMs create site-specific recruitment strategies and implementation plans, which benefit from our extensive global experience in recruitment best practices. They review sites’ pre-screening process, patient pathway and referral process to maximise site enrolment potential.

Patient Recruitment Strategy & 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 study. We use this knowledge and experience to build comprehensive, bespoke strategies that increase patient recruitment and enhance the patient experience.

Site Recruitment Coaching

Unlocking the full potential of your sites

Our CEMs can support your research sites through tailored coaching sessions, aimed at unlocking the full patient recruitment potential of your sites. We have extensive experience in virtual coaching calls for investigator site recruitment plans (ISRPs) and site recruitment planning, as well as on-site visits such as lunch and learn sessions.

Chart Review

Supporting your patient pre-screening process

Identifying potentially eligible patients for your trial is vital, but study sites often lack the time or resource necessary to perform the chart review or database search. Let us help! We have extensive experience in pre-screening, and our CEMs are on hand to perform a chart review either on-site or remotely.

Site Materials

Providing study sites with the tools to meet your study targets

We know the importance of making sure that study sites have access to the tools essential to the success of your clinical trial. We provide your sites with the materials required to accelerate patient recruitment, thus meeting your clinical research deadlines. We offer a wide range of both printed and digital study site materials to support the recruitment process, study management and patient retention, which are adapted to your specific protocol and provided to sites around the world in their local language.
