Earlier this week, we overviewed some of the evidence in favor of using patient recruitment services, today we’ll unpack a little more of what Citruslabs has to offer when you choose us to handle your recruitment.
Tailored Patient Pool
Unlike other patient recruitment companies, we offer you the ability to recruit patients that have already been selected to meet your trial’s specific needs. Using our network of health apps, we allow users to submit data about themselves and their health in order to be matched with future trials. The result is millions of data points that enable our team to assign potential patients to your clinical studies, already knowing they meet certain basic criteria for your specific research needs.
This approach saves you money and time, and helps patients to have a better experience overall by finding suitable trials faster with fewer hoops to jump through.
We have discussed previously on the blog how important it is to educate patients about the clinical trial process in order to prepare them and enable seamless onboarding. This is also important in empowering patients to advocate for themselves while in your clinical trial, which is a vital aspect of the patient experience and the mutual effectiveness of clinical research.
In addition to collecting information about our patient pool, our health app network also works to educate patients about clinical protocol, and even grant insight into managing their conditions outside of clinical research.
This grants your trial the unique advantage of recruiting patients who already know what to expect from the research process. We’ve highlighted some of the ways this boosts patient engagement and lowers your dropout rate, here on the blog.
Communication with our Customers
Above all, we value the people we work with and the feedback they provide. We prioritize keeping open lines of communication, maintaining clear expectations, and --not to toot our own horns-- helping you surpass your goals.
Recently, we supported the University of Pittsburgh in recruitment for their trial:
“Citruslabs recruitment has been a lifeline to the study in a difficult time. We’ve had a higher hit rate, we believe, from your referrals than any other participant registries we’ve used. It’s allowed us to add more intake visits and even so we are booking well into April already.”
Our focus on communication with customers and patients alike (via. Our patient dashboard’s world-leading two way chat function) is what sets us apart from other clinical trial recruitment companies. This enables us to constantly adapt and change in response to feedback from researchers and patients, in order to make sure our recruitment techniques are up to date with the real life needs of those using them.
