After many clinical trials had paused their practices and stopped recruiting patients, more and more research organizations are picking up their paste again and restart or resume trials. According to GlobalData’s Pharma Intelligence Center, the number of resumed clinical trials has actually increased, from 741 to 808 resumed trials, 82.4% of those trials are currently actively recruiting potential study candidates. 7.3% of resumed trials have already concluded patient recruitment and 0.5% of trials are awaiting recruitment of study participants.
However, restarting patient recruitment methods during a pandemic appears to be hard for some research sites, especially because patients fear getting infected during on-site visits and many sites do not have the infrastructure (yet) to switch their on-site trials to virtual ones.
Citruslabs can support you with restarting your patient recruitment efforts to set you up for clinical trial success. We have created Citrus to generate highly qualified and educated referrals, drive patients through the entire recruitment funnel, and nurture them throughout the experience to give them a feeling of safety and trust.
Not only can you manage all of your incoming referrals through our centralized referral management tool, but you can keep them engaged and informed about ongoing safety measures on your research site, and updates within the study.
Further, our communication hub allows you to answer questions and concerns directly, which increases trust and a feeling of safety to be in good hands, and with our integrated patient portal, referrals will have their own platform to receive information, ask questions, and get reminders and automated, personalized messages in regard to their clinical trial status and upcoming meetings.
