Patient Recruitment is Difficult

Patient Recruitment has long been the weak link in the development of new treatments. In fact despite making up approximately 30% of the total study cost, a staggering 80% of studies miss their recruitment deadline.

Missed Patient Recruitment deadlines mean delays and increased study costs. But more importantly, every day a study is delayed by poor recruitment is a day less a new treatment is available to patients.

The Ignite Solution

So that you can get more of the ‘right’ patients onto studies faster, we’ve developed a unique solution that combines Electronic Health Record (EHR) data with powerful analytics and other support technologies.

This enables us to pinpoint and engage healthcare facilities with the patient populations most suitable for your study, before expediting just the protocol-aligned patients into screening.
