Patient recruitment is perhaps one of the biggest challenges that new clinical trials are facing, for a variety of reasons including fear and misinformation (leading to worries about or being a kind of “medical guinea pig”.) Because of these challenges, 86% of clinical trials do not recruit an adequate number of patients, and a further 11% fail to recruit even a single patient, according to data collected by Clinical Leader and BioPharmaDrive.
Matching patients with the right kinds of trials requires excellent communication and education -- both of which are tackled in the Citrus platform.
Our Citrus platform uses sophisticated software paired with our health app network to match the right patients to the right clinical trials. We do this through analysis of their medical information, demographics, and online and mobile behavior in order to recruit patients that are suitable for the clinical researcher’s objectives, therefore targeting participants who will derive the most mutual benefit from the trial.
Hereby, MindMate offers users daily activities including those that encourage physical exercise, proper nutrition, as well as new recipes, and brain games -- all while consensually collecting data about in-app behavior and offering brain-scoring tasks that approximate the Mini-Mental State Exam (MMSE.)
Over 200 research sites use Citruslabs' fully integrated recruitment and retention platform to match, screen, and enroll thousands of patients each month, and we ensure our research sites are connected to an educated and engaged pool of over 3 million patients.
Beyond this, Citrus uses a secure two-way communication system to ensure that patients are able to safely communicate with their clinical research sponsors and their medical team with confidence from an integrated patient portal. Further, patients will be engaged from day one through personalized, automated drip campaigns. These strategies boost recruitment, as well as encourage patient engagement by reducing doubts and ensuring transparency throughout the entire process.
