Elligo Health Research’s PatientSelect® model reduces recruitment costs and challenges, accelerates study timelines, and improves patient centricity. But how?

In this blog series, we will explore how this unique patient identification and enrollment model improves upon standard recruitment methods to accelerate clinical trials for the benefit of patients, physicians, and sponsors alike. This week, we’re looking at how Elligo quickly finds known patients for your specific protocol.

An In-Depth, Protocol-Driven Query Finds Likely Patients Fast

Traditional patient recruitment uses indication-focused advertising. This method is like searching for a needle in a haystack: time consuming, expensive, and ineffective. Our PatientSelect® model, however, uses an in-depth, protocol-driven query to quickly find thousands of qualified patients for your specific needs.

We have a comprehensive network of patients who are pre-vetted for protocol inclusion through HIPAA-compliant identified EHR data from over 40 leading EHR platforms. For every PatientSelect® study, we perform a system-wide, electronic medical record search of this network to find a large selection of qualified patients who meet the study requirements — saving significant time and money over indication-focused advertising. 

The Trusted Patient-Physician Relationship Finds Known Patients

Not only is traditional enrollment slow and ineffective, but it also identifies unknown patients motivated by money, anonymous health assessments, or free care. While these motivations aren’t always bad, they often lead to participants who can’t be trusted to properly perform your protocol or even remain in your study for its duration.

PatientSelect®, on the other hand, finds reliable patients through their trusted physicians. After our network search identifies patients for a study, we share the study details with the hospitals, doctor’s offices, and other facilities where those patients go for their regular medical care. We then engage with enthusiastic providers with the most ideal mix of known, protocol-eligible patients. By leveraging the trusted patient-physician relationship, our PatientSelect® model selects patients who are not only known and accessible, but who are also motivated by their trust in their physician, meaning they are more likely to remain properly engaged throughout your trial.

Direct Access to Pre-Qualified Patients Increases Diversity

Finally, because traditional patient recruitment is like a shot in the dark, it does not support selection based on diversity, geography, demography, disease state, or disease severity. But, as our PatientSelect® model allows you to begin your study with a large pool of pre-qualified patients, you can select the most ideal patients for your trial while taking diversity into account — all before screening.

Our commitment to the trusted patient-physician relationship, close work with healthcare practices in traditionally underrepresented communities, and ongoing relationships with advocacy and support groups further enable increased diversity, as gaining and retaining patient trust is essential for increasing research participation for diverse patient populations.
