Globally, more than 80% of trials fail to enroll on time, resulting in study extensions or the addition of new sites.
With the right support, our team equips sites and study teams with the knowledge and resources they need to stay ahead of the enrollment curve. In this article, we’re discussing six approaches that are part of PharPoint’s enrollment toolkit:
Strategic site selection is one of the best tools we have to keep enrollment on track. To predict enrollment and pinpoint high performers, PharPoint leverages a robust database with historical clinical trial information.
Some clinical trial sites may benefit from additional support in drawing up a study-specific recruitment plan. PharPoint can partner with sites during study start-up to create a living document that can help focus recruitment efforts on areas that are most effective.
When one specific site is struggling with enrollment, a targeted engagement call allows our team to understand their obstacles and collaboratively create a path forward.
Communication is key! A collaborative, study-wide investigator call allows sites to share best practices and lessons learned. Together, any common challenges or concerns can be addressed.
Could visual communications and other supplemental recruitment materials benefit a site? PharPoint is capable of providing additional recruitment materials for study sites, including things such as skimmable, visual guides/reminders for site staff.
For particularly hard-to-recruit indications, a trusted niche partner can develop advertising campaigns and perform subject identification and outreach.
Clinical Operations Leads (COLs) who have ample clinical trial experience, including monitoring experience, are your key site management contacts at PharPoint. By matching COLs to studies that align with their expertise (and with additional support from clinical project managers who have 20+ years in research), we help sites stay on-track or supplement their enrollment approach, as needed.
