Recruitment

Recruitment can be one of the biggest bottlenecks of a clinical trial, and on-time recruitment is a critical factor in meeting timelines. Finding the eligible, willing patients at the right time is becoming more and more challenging. Dokumeds has a track record of recruiting on time. In studies completed between 2015 and 2017, we reached 100% of our recruitment targets, and in 35% of studies, we finished ahead of time. Frequently, sponsors will request us to take over additional regions, or increase our patient commitment, to alleviate shortfalls.

Dokumeds recruitment success likely stems through our specialization in feasibility, and realistic evaluation of feasibility results. Relationship with the site to get true and complete information to support recruitment of the right patients is our number one priority from well before the first Site Initiation. We re-confirm our investigators commitment to patient recruitment personally through every stage from first feasibility questionnaire, protocol synopsis, protocol availability, prior to submission, during contract negotiation, and again prior to initiation.
