  • Clinical Trials
  • Patient Recruitment

Date: 13 October


Time: 4PM London/11AM New York

Patient recruitment and enrollment is one of the most critical opportunities to improve the clinical trial execution process. Twenty to sixty percent of the total clinical development timeline is spent on identifying and recruiting the right patients.

Through Covance's proprietary Xcellerate® knowledgebase with over 175,000 individual investigators and our LabCorp patient database with over 70 million de-identified patients, we are able to leverage the two databases to significantly improve our study planning and increase our site optimization towards faster patient enrollment

Join our webinar as we highlight solutions to overcome the enormous challenge of study planning and patient recruitment. You'll hear case studies and see walkthroughs of how we apply investigative performance insights and match up patient densities to address the challenge of adequate and quality recruitment. Learn how deep, broad data throughout a trial's implementation can create significant advantages to drive your optimization.
