By adding extra screening questions to the matching software, organizations may improve the patient search experience and increase the likelihood that qualified patients will find the studies.
FREMONT, CA: Clinical trial matching software is a relatively new discovery in the research world. To identify solutions for their research portfolios, sponsors typically deal directly with clinical trial matching software providers. This technology connects patients with clinical trials in an easy-to-use approach for both patients and sponsors, and it can also help with patient recruitment. Below is how clinical trial matching software can be used to improve the research portfolio.
One advantage of clinical trial matching software is that it makes it easier for patients looking for a trial to discover one. The same software can also help sponsors and research sites drive patient recruiting efforts. Sponsors can collaborate with these companies in a variety of ways to create a solution that fits their portfolio of trials:
Customize a Clinical Trial Matching Tool for the Website with the Help of a Vendor
Patients may easily search through all of the studies one is presently recruiting for using a clinical trial search tool tailored to the trials. By adding extra screening questions to the matching software, organizations may improve the patient search experience and increase the likelihood that qualified patients will find the studies.
Using a Prescreener Driven by Clinical Trial Matching Technology, Recruit for One or More Trials:
Every trial has its own set of inclusion and exclusion criteria. A patient who is not eligible for one trial may be eligible for another. Those patients can easily fall through the gaps using single-trial prescreeners. Sponsors can use prescreeners powered by clinical trial matching software to assess patients' eligibility for multiple studies in their portfolios. For sponsors running multiple trials in a given condition area, this strategy can speed up clinical trial recruitment.
Find Patients Who Have Expressed an Interest in Participating:
Clinical trial matching software has the advantage of making it easier to identify patients who are actively looking for a clinical trial. Patients who have used clinical trial matching tools to find studies have already expressed an interest in participating in research and are more likely to be engaged and interested in participating in trials. If organizations are interested in going this way, find out if the clinical trial matching tool they consider captures patient information to contact them afterward. It is also crucial to ensure that the vendor is speedy on data privacy and consent requirements. Some platforms allow patients to sign up for alerts that notify them when new trials matching their profile are added.
