How can Citrus make your trial more cost-effective
Last week, we gave insights into how Citrus can fit into your clinical trial strategy and underlined that Citrus can really fit every strategy, no matter what primary goal your research site is working towards. This week, we are diving deeper into how Citrus can make your clinical trial more cost-effective and show, how you can drive successful profitability by applying a more patient-centric and agile workflow that enables you to focus on what really matters.
Cost-effectiveness through highly qualified referrals
The base of successful and cost-efficient patient recruitment starts with the quality of referrals that are being screened and recruited for your clinical trials. Many research sites experience a loss in money due to less targeted advertisement approaches which lead to unqualified referrals and under-enrollment in trials.
Citruslabs has helped over 200 clinical trials with recruiting highly qualified and educated referrals through our own health app networks due to multiple data points and in-app education on clinical research to create transparency and trust from the start. This has led to a higher enrollment rate due to better suitability to our clients’ clinical trials and saves clinical trials money and time to fill their trials.
Through Citrus, research sites are then able to screen and manage all referrals (from multiple sources) in one central location, which not only saves time but enables research staff to generate a more agile and effective workflow and systematically engage with patients, which leads to meeting higher enrollment.
Cost-effectiveness through automation
Many research sites experience a lack of time to focus on patient screening and recruitment due to a high volume of administrative tasks, trying to search for the right patients, reach unresponsive patients, or replacing dropouts.
In order to take on a more pivotal role and work more cost-effectively, Citrus integrates an agile workflow through collaborative, prioritized, and automated task management. This feature does not only enable you to work more organized and effective, but makes it easier to follow up with all your patients by creating multiple patient touchpoints to create a positive patient experience and enables you to focus on increasing screenings and enrollments to hit your weekly targets.
Driving profitability through patient engagement
Engage more with less effort - over 86% of clinical trials do not meet their patient targets - one crucial reason for that is a high amount of dropout rates due to a lack of patient engagement, transparency, and trust. Citrus helps sites to execute their best patient engagement by creating a measurable series of touchpoints that drive deeper patient engagement with patients. Through personalized, automated campaigns, you can nurture patients over the entire clinical trial period, create transparency, and strengthen your patient-site connectivity, which leads to a higher level of patient satisfaction and a decrease in dropouts. High engagement rates lead to higher retention for your trials and drive profitability for future research.
