Patient recruitment and retention remains the Achilles heel of clinical trials. An innovative service model involving traveling nurses to conduct at-home or alternate site study visits has gained traction over the past years. While only a handful of global providers of ambulant care services are available, sponsors of all sizes and locations have been forming partnerships with these organizations to accelerate their development timelines by fostering patient-centric services to enhance patient recruitment and retention. We will explore how a large pharmaceutical company is driving innovation through its corporate silos. We will also explore how this innovative ambulant care service model was incorporated into specific studies and how the resulting benefits benefited all stakeholders including patient, investigator, sponsor, and consumer.

Learning Objectives

Identify three keys factors when selecting strategic partners; Articulate the cornerstones to a successful partnership; Describe the hurdles when changing culture and advancing innovation.
