Patient Recruitment & Retention

Meet participant targets quickly—and retain them to last visit

If time is of the essence for success of your clinical trial—especially if site staff are otherwise engaged—WCG’s Patient Recruitment & Retention services ensure you rapidly move identified candidates into full enrollment—and keep them enrolled.

Many clinical studies experience participant shortfalls initially because potential candidates are frequently never contacted. WCG’s dedicated Site Services team adds extraordinary new levels of focus, efficiency and results to your participant recruitment process.

Our Clinical Research Professionals earn WCG an unmatched track record delivering targeted numbers of qualified patients: Improving clinical study enrollment timelines of 44 percent on average across all therapeutic indications—at a below-average cost-per-enrollment.

We stand behind our commitment to cost-effective recruitment with optional performance-based pricing—so you only pay for targeted results: enrolled participants.

Meeting participant targets quickly, and retaining them to last-visit, is one of the largest challenges today in running a clinical trial. In fact, 20-25% of studies close because they fail to meet enrollment targets.

The team at WCG helps sponsors and CROs overcome these challenges by focusing recruitment efforts where they’re needed most: at the site level. By combining a dedicated on-the-ground resource with a customized site recruitment strategy, enrollment becomes focused, effective and streamlined so that clinical studies begin and stay on schedule.
