Patient Exit Insights
We engage directly with study patients to explore their full trial experience, from introduction to discontinuation or completion, to understand what patients need to consent and complete study participation. Our findings help improve the patient experience and inform future protocol development
Our proprietary market research tools and methodologies help us evaluate protocol design and identify obstacles prior to protocol finalization. We develop actionable strategies that provide greater trial predictability and enable sponsors to meet their milestones.
We partner with trusted community resources to connect patients and caregivers to clinical research. Together, we identify high-impact outreach tactics to optimize the patient experience.

- Patient Outreach
- Patient Centricity

Certain diseases disproportionately affect some patient populations that can be difficult reach through traditional communication methods. Our patient recruitment strategists work with community groups in these populations to raise clinical trial awareness for those who need it most.
Our relationships with patient groups have led to beneficial changes for patients, such as modern design and brand strategies, and presenting patient testimony to the FDA.

Lack of transportation is frequently cited as a barrier to recruiting and retaining patients in clinical trials. We're proud to be the first patient recruitment provider to partner with a rideshare company to break this barrier. Through our partnership with Lyft, easy-to-schedule patient transportation to and from appointments is available at no cost to the patient.Learn more
