Some of the biggest challenges of delivering a successful clinical study are identifying, measuring and understanding the flow of a per protocol patient segment as it exists in the real world. This is important for selecting both the number and kind of clinical sites needed to deliver the required number of patients at the agreed recruitment rate. Understanding patient segmentation helps shape and informs your patient recruitment and retention strategy. Developing this strategy with the patient at the center is key to a successful clinical study. Patient centricity in clinical trials is at the forefront of clinical research excellence and innovation today, allowing companies to better leverage online communities, telemedicine, mHealth, EMRs and virtual trials to increase clinical trial efficiency. This conference covers how the characterization of patient segments, data-driven site selection, optimized feasibility assessment and implementation of patient-centric trial planning are improving cycle time predictability and efficient execution.
