In-Home Trial Supply Challenges
Historically, some clinical trial models have had difficulty in the past with low recruitment, high withdrawal rates, and low results on company perception surveys due to participation burdens. When trials are designed with the patient in mind, the participation barriers can be minimized, ultimately supporting recruitment and retention efforts. One of the biggest hurdles that clinical teams can look to overcome is the requirement for a patient to travel to a hospital or clinic for treatment. While centralizing a trial at a hospital or clinic may allow for easier medication transport, data collection and travel can be taxing for patients, both financially and physically.
