Talking Travel

Patient Engagement Demands

Two major factors have been, and continue to be, prime movers in the area of patient engagement: the ever- and exponentially increasing competition for eligible and interested patients and the burgeoning and rapidly evolving internet-driven service industry, which is often experienced by users through the utilisation of mobile device applications. The collision of the two – specifically, the sheer volume of the one and the culture of immediacy and convenience of the other – quickly set expectations exceptionally high for rapid results, which have been felt by sponsor clinical teams and service providers alike.

Undeniable Positive Impact

The following are three representative case studies, showing different travel solutions and retention challenges:

Superior retention of those using the service in this study scenario makes sense. When mobility problems and significant distances from the sites are concerning, one would expect a professional travel assistance programme to remove a major barrier to participation. However, what about when the travel distance is not great and the patients are relatively self-sufficient with no mobility issues? Is there really such a big difference?

The Role of the CRO in Effective Risk-Based Monitoring

Medpace

The clinical trial industry is evolving. In an effort to improve participant safety and data integrity, regulators are encouraging trial sponsors to transition from a focused on-site monitoring approach they have traditionally employed toward a risk-based approach that utilizes a combination of centralized and on-site monitoring techniques to ensure patient safety and data quality. The Risk-Based Monitoring (RBM) paradigm has many potential advantages over established monitoring practices including enhanced patient safety and data integrity, more efficient and effective protocol design, reduced costs, and the ability to strategically adjust oversight in keeping with changes in risk level.
