9M Patients in the last 10 years

More than 9M patients in observational and quality improvement programs in the last 10 years in more than 100 countries with more than 55,000 sites.

Build and strengthen communications

Recruitment is a complex process involving not only patients but physicians, sponsors, trials professionals and research staff. Hindered by tight timelines and often fragmented communications, recruitment rates can be disappointingly low. A partner who can facilitate strong relationships with investigators and sites and quickly connect with patient populations helps keep your trials on track.
