Patient Recruiting Expertise
CTN Clinical Research has the necessary patient recruiting expertise to enroll clinical trial volunteers on a continual basis. We maintain an extensive internal database of more than 8,500 prospective and past patients; and more than 15,000 patients among our physicians on staff. Our database includes healthy volunteers and special patient populations. With our dedicated recruiting department, we are able to meet and exceed enrollment goals.
Because our facility is strategically located in a Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) Zone, it allows us to serve the local underprivileged and underserved surrounding communities. There are multiple buses that pass by our location, making it easily accessible to anyone throughout Houston. Additionally, we are able to offer transportation during certain studies and make the extra effort to ensure our patients take advantage of this opportunity.
Clinical Trial Network’s database is made up of more than 8,000 pre-qualified candidates of various genders, races, ethnicity and age. In addition to this database, we have strategically located our offices in an underserved and underprivileged area in the heart of Houston, Texas. Home to more than 2.2 million people, Houston is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the United States. This allows CTN access to virtually every type of demographic and ethnicity, and in-turn provides an ideal database of potential candidates for sponsors. Our current database reflects the following demographics:
- 50 percent African American
- 20 percent Hispanic
- 10 percent Caucasian
- 20 percent Asian
At CTN, our proficient submission techniques allow us to gain approval and initiate studies within a few days of receiving final protocol. CTN has extensive experience in rapid start-ups across numerous indications and sponsors. Our unique tracking system ensures that we maintain an accurate chain of custody for critical documents as well as investigational substances.
Further expediting trials start-ups is our advanced ability to immediately market to our well-maintained databases in the local area for patient recruiting. We attract a diverse local population for targeted marketing that includes local colleges and universities as well as a large local elderly population. Our rapid start-up trials are well coordinated with a focused sub-team dedicated to effective and fast implementation in a quality manner.
48-Hour Data Collection
Accuracy is vital, information is sensitive and timing is crucial in our constantly-evolving industry. Effective data management is essential to the process and we use one of the most innovative and dynamic clinical trial management systems available. This enables our staff to quickly identify even the most challenging patient populations and carefully track our patients throughout each respective study.
Spaces designed to handle all phases of study provide for a level of coordination, observation and documentation unmatched by general purpose medical facilities. At CTN, we employ the most efficient and effective data collection methods and have a wide range of expertise in data collection and management.
