Patient Recruitment: CRO

The Brief

Ignite were approached by a leading Contract Research Organisation (CRO) who run a large global network of fixed research sites with multiple studies and continued high demand for patients.

Ignite were tasked to build a large-scale patient recruitment network across the UK in order to support their Patient Recruitment activities.

Ignite’s Approach

Ignite’s approach led us to build a large-scale Patient Recruitment network of sites around each of the clients fixed research centres.

Over time this network has grown to produce a pool of sites who work with Ignite on multiple Patient Recruitment projects every year.

Ignite utilised its streamlined technology-driven solution to quickly find the right patients with minimal work for the GP Practices.


  • A large-scale network of research active sites utilising a technology-driven model to reduce workload whilst reliably finding the right patients for studies.
  • Thousands of patient communications delivered each week building awareness of active studies and randomising patients.
  • A significant reduction in cost per randomisation, while also significantly reducing other cost burdens by outsourcing this business critical function.
