Webinar: Seven Habits of Highly Effective Clinical Research Sites

CINCINNATI, OH — Medpace’s Manager of Patient Recruitment, Betsy Harris, recently co-presented a webinar hosted by TrialJoin.

WEBINAR: Seven Habits of Highly Effective (Clinical Research) Sites

About the Webinar

Delayed enrollment impacts most clinical trials (According to Cutting Edge Information, 72% of studies run more than one month behind schedule).

Slow enrollment into clinical trials is the number one reason for delays in getting new drugs approved.

Patent expirations are not moved out to accommodate delays in drug approvals; meaning that accelerating enrollment into clinical trials enhances the revenue stream from newly launched drugs.

Key takeaways from this webinar:

  • A formula for estimating the dollar value associated with accelerating enrollment into a clinical trial
  • A novel, cost-effective, customized approach for uncovering and implementing the unique drivers that will accelerate subject recruitment
  • The importance of integrating “old world” strategies with technology/social media to enhance recruitment efforts
  • Identify ways to optimize your site using tools and tracking methods described
  • Develop study specific patient recruitment strategies for outreach outside your clinic’s database
  • Build a strong internal and external patient referral network to raise community awareness and increase participation in your clinical studies
