Patient Recruitment Strategy
Rushed recruitment strategies based on subjective or inconsistent data only has one result: study managers with unrealistic recruitment targets and no patients. (We know, because they come to us for help!)
Our Recruitment Strategy support is based on IGNITE DATA’s in-house data, Electronic Health Record (EHR) searches at representative sites and clinician surveys, providing you a consistent methodology that helps to remove variability in your pipeline analysis.
This provides you with invaluable knowledge of your patient population and what strategy is required to recruit from it.
EHR (Electronic Health Record) Data Analytics
Following a short protocol review, our proprietary analytics on live EHR (Electronic Health Record) data helps us understand how well your study is likely to recruit at potential sites that we identify. Or, if you already have UK sites selected, but are unsure if they will generate the patient pipelines you require, we help with that too.
Patient Recruitment Strategy & Ethics Advice
If we all agree the Recruitment Feasibility stacks up, then together we will start planning an integrated Patient Recruitment strategy, including estimating conversion rates at key points in the recruitment funnel. We will also help you safely navigate the world of NHS Research Ethics Committees.
Site Selection & Engagement
Once we are all happy with the Patient Recruitment strategy, our experienced remote Study Support Team works tirelessly to identify, engage and digitally contract the right sites for your study. This involves quickly engaging our existing networks, as well as rapidly expanding into new regions as required.
