A strategic blueprint and seamless execution for optimal patient recruitment and retention

Patient recruitment and retention remains one of the most challenging hurdles in clinical development. Complex study protocols, lack of awareness among physicians and patients, competing studies, and shrinking pools of potential patients due to increasingly targeted therapies all contribute to the difficulty.

IntelliPACE®️ is Medpace’s in-house program driving successful and expedited patient recruitment. Fully integrated and leveraging the clinical development services of Medpace as a global clinical research organization with nearly 30 years of experience, IntelliPACE provides a two-pronged approach to patient recruitment and retention. The first is a sound and well-vetted recruitment strategy driven by robust data and expert analysis. Once the optimal strategy is defined, our specialized recruitment teams step in to execute the plan seamlessly and efficiently.
