Patient Recruitment
How to find the right patients for your study

We know how challenging it is to find the right patients for your studies.
Our experience in all regulatory aspects, and our long-lasting relationships show how well we work with different sites worldwide.
Gain from our support and benefit from transparent and measurable patient recruitment campaigns. We create personas and combine them with our evaluated performance data of previous studies to find your patients.

Find the right patients at the right time with our effective way of patient recruitment.

Our approach to overcome challenges of patient recruitment

Study Protocol

The study protocol includes all disease information about the patients which can be included in the study. This document is our basis for finding the right patients.

Define Motivation

Taking the information from the protocol, we define and analyze the motivation of patients to participate in your specific study.

Create Personas

From the basis of the motivation, we group patients and create patient personas, including the extension of personal characteristics alongside disease attributes.

Choose Activities

We then find the best ways to spread awareness of your study to the right target group, increasing the efficiency of finding the right patients for you.
