A leading pharmaceutical company, partnered with Your Research, a renowned service provider in clinical research, to optimise their visit scheduling process. This narrative use case highlights how Your Research’s visit scheduling software transformed the pharmaceuticals’ clinical research operations, improving efficiency, participant experience, and overall trial success
The pharmaceutical company faced challenges in managing the complex visit scheduling process across multiple study sites, investigators, and participants. Manual scheduling methods resulted in scheduling conflicts, inefficiencies, and delayed trial timelines. To overcome these obstacles, they turned to Your Research for a tailored visit scheduling software solution.
Centralised Visit Scheduling: Your Research’s visit scheduling software provided a centralised platform where the pharmaceutical company could manage and coordinate study visits efficiently. The software allowed study coordinators to access a comprehensive view of available time slots, investigator availability, and participant preferences, enabling seamless scheduling.
Automated Scheduling and Conflict Resolution: The visit scheduling software automated the scheduling process, minimising manual effort and reducing the likelihood of scheduling conflicts. The software intelligently analysed available time slots, participant preferences, and investigator availability, ensuring optimal visit scheduling while considering logistical constraints.
Participant-Centric Scheduling: Your Research’s software prioritised participant convenience and preferences. Participants were provided with user-friendly portals where they could indicate their preferred visit times and dates. The software considered these preferences when generating the visit schedule, increasing participant satisfaction and compliance.
Real-Time Schedule Updates: The visit scheduling software allowed for real-time schedule updates. If any changes or cancellations occurred, study coordinators and participants were immediately notified. This ensured effective communication, minimised confusion, and reduced the risk of missed appointments.
Efficient Resource Allocation: The software optimised resource allocation by considering site capacities, investigator availability, and equipment requirements. Study coordinators could easily allocate resources based on the visit schedule, ensuring efficient utilisation and reducing the likelihood of resource conflicts.
