Across our network of health apps and our work as a virtual CRO and clinical trial recruitment company, we prioritize patient experience. It is important to our team to cultivate open, transparent communication and to ensure the best possible relationship with our patients and customers alike.
Recently, we helped with recruitment for a clinical trial investigating a new treatment for Arthritis pain management. Jonathan, one of the participants, has been living with his condition for years and finally found relief in clinical research.
“Way better than I did just a year ago. My joints don't feel as stiff anymore, it’s still a process but I finally feel like I am on the right way,” he said. He also reported feeling grateful for the impact our team had on him and his family.
“Throughout the whole process, Citruslabs was great about keeping me in the loop. I felt secure in the whole thing...and, my family has had bad experiences in the past with clinical trials, and feeling like we weren’t really in control. This time around, the whole experience was just different. I got to feel safe, and get recruited into a trial that’s now helped me immensely. And, my family doesn’t have to worry,” Jonathan said.
A patient of another trial for seborrheic dermatitis, Annaleigh, got to experience a purely virtual trial.
“Because of the pandemic, my trial was entirely online. Even so, everything felt as secure and professional as possible."
Annaleigh was also excited to find relief through her clinical trial experience, and she was most grateful for finally being recruited to one now that research was taking place online.
“I had waited so long to suit a trial near me, with my other obligations it just isn’t realistic for me to travel. Now though, Citruslabs paired me with a trial that was actually taking place a few states over, and I got to participate in something I never would have been able to otherwise,” she said.
Her clinical trial recruitment process went smoothly, and she reported back to us feeling excited and prepared from the start.
“Their team is just fantastic, so communicative and really treats you like a human being, not just another number on a screen. It felt great to be valued that way and to feel like even from just the beginning of the recruitment process, I had a whole team rallying behind me,” she said.
