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 DATA Solution

So that you can get more of the ‘right’ patients onto your study 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.

Benefits of IGNITE DATA's Patient Recruitment Model

Broad Coverage

Our agile and technology-agnostic approach means we work with a large, representative and exponentially growing group of research-active UK healthcare facilities.


Our solid track record and the confidence we have in our metrics allow us to offer a predominantly Payment-by-Results pricing model, helping you to de-risk your study.

Higher Sign-Up Rates

IGNITE DATA’s model is designed to massively reduce workload at healthcare facilities, because we know happy healthcare professionals will sign-up for more of your studies.

The 'Right' Patients

Our technology-enhanced solutions go straight to the ‘right’ patients through their GP medical record, as opposed to methods that require patients to ‘self-screen’.

The challenges of Real-World Evidence

Collecting Real-World Data through studies and database projects in a way that generates meaningful Real-World Evidence is a complex and ever-changing area full of potential pitfalls.

A plethora of data exist in different systems and formats in every healthcare setting, with a wide range of ways of accessing it and complex ethics and legalities governing it.
