Patient retention: a phrase that makes clinical trial site staff groan almost as much as ‘patient recruitment’, or maybe even more depending on the site. Most clinical trial sites struggle with patient retention – how to keep patients involved in studies with active engagement while adeptly providing data to reach clinical trial outcomes. In fact, according to Forte Research Systems, […]
Clinical trial sites traditionally market individual trials for patient recruitment using advertising materials and/or budgets given to them by sponsors. A sponsor-provided budget is typically $3000 – $5000, which isn’t much considering the cost of television, radio, and newspaper advertisements, printing, etc. Even though advertising per trial is an effective strategy for filling studies in the short-term, […]
Patient recruitment for clinical trial is important for sites, sponsors, and CROs, as it affects the potential outcome and value of the clinical trial.

O’Leary’s article is full of great information […]
Medication non-adherence for patients is a huge deal in both the healthcare and clinical research sectors. It is estimated that the total potential healthcare savings from medication adherence is $290 billion, or 13% of health spending. Half of patients do not take their medications as prescribed, especially those with chronic conditions, leading to wasted drugs […]

Mosio has a new […]
Text messaging has become a simple, cost-effective way to reach study participants and is now frequently used as a method of communication within research studies. Texting, along with other vital technological components, must therefore be considered in grant and study budgets. A few common hiccups make the budgeting process substantially more difficult than is necessary, […]
