Last week, we gave insights into how Citrus can make your trial more cost-effective and underlined how research sites can save costs through deeper, personalized, and automated communication and workflows that enable staff to focus on what really matters instead of wasting time on administrative tasks. Today, we will take a look into how Citrus can increase your patient retention rates and enable you to drive profitability for future trials.
Automated engagement to drive retention rates
What we have found in a study withing our health app network is that the majority of patients signing up for a clinical trial are very excited to be part of it. How come, that in any given trials, there are increasing numbers of dropout rates and clinical trials are struggling with under-enrollment?
It all comes down to patient engagement and agile workflows. Many clinical trials try to implement patient-centric approaches, but following through with a patient engagement strategy that can be easily applied to existing workflows without adding additional work on research site staff can be tough. This is why we created Citrus, our fully integrated platform that puts patients in the center and makes your workflow more effective and agile. Citrus offers effective task management and engagement opportunities by creating multiple touchpoints to communicate and engage with patients without adding more work and leading to an increase in transparency, trust, and patient retention rates.
How does it not add more work to your staff, you might ask? Our platform offers personalized, automated campaigns to engage patients at any given time, sending them reminders, and keeping them in the loop about the process of the clinical trial. This enables research sites to spend more time on other tasks without having to worry about missing out on patient interactions. Besides that, Citrus also enables you to use our collaborative, prioritizing, and automated task management tool, which makes it easier to manage referrals, work more productive to hit enrollment targets, and follow patients’ paths through the recruitment funnel easier. This enables you also to proactively work on solutions for potential problems that could dissatisfy patients.
On top of that, the platform has a centralized communication hub that encourages two-way communication which creates a special relationship between potential study candidates and your staff, leading to higher trust, higher patient satisfaction, and a decrease in patient dropouts and thus higher patient retention.
