Patient Recruitment and Retention

Patient recruitment strategies that enroll patients

Advanced Clinical

The heart of clinical research is patients.

We know that the success of every patient recruitment and retention program starts with a custom, data-driven, patient-centric strategy. That’s because every protocol presents unique challenges for reliable patient recruitment and retention. Without a preemptive strategy, valuable time and millions of dollars are often lost to insufficient enrollment and retention.

Advanced Clinical’s patient recruitment and retention services ensure the foresight needed to surpass those challenges by applying strategic enrollment and retention plans, innovative tools, and dependable operations to accelerate enrollment and secure retention and faster trial completion.
