At Your Research, we understand that patient retention is crucial for the success of clinical trials. Dropout rates can lead to delays, increased costs, and compromise the validity of the study. That’s why we are passionate about harnessing the power of digital software to enhance patient engagement and retention in clinical trials.
In this case study, we will delve into how our digital software solution successfully improved patient retention in a phase III clinical trial.
Use of software in phase III clinical trial
A leading pharmaceutical company approached us to assist with their phase III clinical trial for a novel drug targeting a chronic disease. The trial spanned multiple centers nationwide and had an 18-month duration. Patient retention was a concern, given the high dropout rates observed in similar trials. Recognizing the potential of digital software, the company partnered with Your Research to optimize patient engagement and retention.
Our tailored digital software solution comprised a mobile application and a web portal. The patient-focused mobile application allowed participants to easily access appointment schedules, educational materials, and communicate seamlessly with their healthcare providers. Simultaneously, the web portal catered to the needs of healthcare providers, enabling them to monitor patient progress, facilitate communication, and access essential trial-related documents.
User-Friendly and Accessible Design
Prioritizing usability and accessibility, our digital software was designed to accommodate patients of all ages and backgrounds. We provided comprehensive training to ensure patients felt comfortable navigating the software, and a dedicated support team was readily available to address any concerns or difficulties they encountered.
Impressive Patient Retention Results
The results of the trial were remarkable. The utilisation of our digital software led to a significant improvement in patient retention. The dropout rate plummeted to an impressive 10%, a substantial reduction compared to the 25% dropout rate witnessed in similar trials. Patients who embraced our digital software reported higher levels of engagement and satisfaction throughout the trial. They appreciated the seamless access to educational materials, as well as the ability to effortlessly communicate with their healthcare providers.
Positive Experiences for Healthcare Providers
Healthcare providers also expressed their satisfaction with the digital software solution. They found it easier to monitor patient progress, maintain consistent communication, and access critical trial-related documents promptly. Our digital software streamlined their workflow, enabling them to focus more on providing personalized care to trial participants.
The success of this case study exemplifies the transformative impact of digital software on patient engagement and retention in clinical trials. Our mobile application and web portal facilitated seamless access to educational resources, enhanced communication channels between patients and healthcare providers, and provided transparent appointment management. The outstanding results clearly demonstrate that our digital software significantly improves patient retention and engagement, ensuring the success and validity of clinical trials.
