Community-Based Recruitment on a Global Scale.

This has enabled us to establish deep relationships, strong awareness, and diverse patient engagement. Through a combination of country-specific community outreach, partnerships with non-profits, faith-based organizations, local influencers, as well as general physician referral networks, we reach the patients you need for your study.

Community-based recruitment solutions are often used for indications such as hypertension, obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis and cardiovascular outcomes. Here’s why you should consider a community-based recruitment solution:

  • You want consistent site performance as well as flexible contracting – choose from site, country-level, or single contracting.
  • You want to reach and recruit more diverse patient populations. Our community-based recruitment solution delivers more diverse clinical trials consistent with the target disease population. This is driven by identifying and engaging the patients most likely to participate within specific racial and ethnic groups.

Strong global footprint. Stronger support.

Clinical Trial Patient Recruitment Strategies That Work

Patient recruitment performance


When numbers need to be certain, you can choose our pay-for-performance solution.

The average trial requires patients to meet 31 inclusion/exclusion criteria.2 That’s 31 reasons why our pay-for-performance solution is still the right choice for sponsors. We flip the traditional clinical trial patient recruitment model by identifying and recruiting patients first, then referring them to study sites.
