Enhance Your Patients’ Trial Experience

Too often, clinical trial managers focus so much on the recruitment, scheduling, administration, expenses, results, and other details of a trial that they forget one very important element: the patients. The people participating in your trials aren’t just another bit of data to enter in your CTMS—they’re human beings, and their experience interacting with your […]


Increasing Clinical Trial Patient Diversity

Attaining a diverse trial patient population is crucial to your site’s success. It is possible the treatments your trial is putting to the test may affect people from varying racial, ethnic, and age groups differently.

With patient data security and safety concerns […]


Demonstrating Your Value to Sponsors

Understanding what sponsors want from their relationships with both CTOs and specific sites boils down to one thing: reducing risk. Enrolling and retaining patients is a long process that’s also the most critical component of a successful trial. Sponsors want to be ensured that performance is being monitored and reported upon accurately so they can […]
