As of March 2016, 11% of research sites industry-wide fail to enroll a single patient.  That’s time and money wasted that does not benefit sponsors. And 37% of sites under-enroll, creating inefficiency and lost productivity. We need to significantly improve on this statistic to generate studies that involve fewer sites to take advantage of the best leaders in each therapeutic area, reduce travel and administrative costs, and align process for easy start-up.

This webinar will address the various ways Quintiles is 1) pioneering early planning, 2) forming new and innovative relationships with industry partners, 3) developing strategic alliances with the right research partners, 4) using new technology and communication tools, and 5) creating effective physician networks  - all to place more focus on patient and site engagement.
