Patient Identification

Jump-start enrollment with focused, cost-efficient chart review

Industry research reveals that 18% of clinical trials have zero participants enrolled, 20-25% of studies close because of insufficient patients, and 68% of sites fail to meet enrollment targets. Such failures usually stem from shortages of staff or other resources needed to review thousands of patient charts and actively engage qualified participants.

The WCG Patient Identification solution allows you to overcome such obstacles by placing qualified healthcare professionals onsite, where they work exclusively and intensively to assess patient histories and discover candidates best suited to your clinical trial.

By freeing regular site staff to focus on study-related clinical tasks, our dedicated chart review team ensures that your trial begins rapidly and stays on schedule.

Finally, by employing highly experienced reviewers and a refined, efficient review method, our Patient Identification solution allows even the most challenging participant recruitment schedules to catch up or stay on pace.

How Patient Identification achieves unparalleled results in fulfilling patient enrollment goals

Our team understands participant enrollment as no other company. Since 2006 we’ve developed a disciplined chart review and patient assessment methodology that has achieved an incomparable track record—especially in time-sensitive and other challenging recruitment situations.

Our approach is proven to accelerate enrollment timelines by 44% on average.

Above all, finding participants from within clinical trial sites is the most time- and cost-efficient way to meet enrollment goals. Our highly systematized approach to chart review allows us to identify qualified patients faster, with precise accuracy, and more cost-effectively than other in-house or outside resources.

Perhaps most importantly, we offer complete, end-to-end participant enrollment: from Chart Review and Study Marketing to identify your maximum pool of available participants, to fully staffed Patient Recruitment and Patient Management to ensure a high percentage of participants sign on and remain with your study until the last visit.
