Advancements in healthcare will always be necessary to improve quality of life. Yet, clinical trials are riddled with complications that derail progress. Patients, physicians, and trial research associates all face challenges throughout the clinical trial process.
- 30% of patients drop out, often because they don’t fully understand what they’re getting into
- 40% of trials have difficulties with enrolment
- 85% of trials fail to retain enough patients
Poor patient engagement results in patients dropping off in the middle of the trial. Poor enrolment and retention cause non-compliance, trial delays, and even failures at times, resulting in budget overruns. Research associates depend on disparate systems for trial management including spreadsheets, which impacts productivity, employee experience, and compliance adherence. Patients, physicians, and trial coordinators deserve something better.
