Our genetics experts help you develop collaborative strategies for clinical trial and natural history study design and program framework. We design and implement genetic testing support programs that optimize impact to patients and providers while reducing cost and improving outcomes for sponsors. And, we assist sponsors and CROs with identifying sites and analyzing the geographic distribution of referring providers to increase the probability of trial success.
As clinical research is increasingly shifting toward rare and orphan diseases, as well as greater personalization of therapies, patient recruitment becomes more of a challenge. We enable easier identification of hard-to-find patient populations through our networks of rare disease specialists. .Our genetics experts can also help guide the choice of inclusion/exclusion criteria for future trial phases and programs to increase the success of patient identification and enrollment.
Patient Engagement and Retention
We build rapport and trust with patients through personalized pre- and post-test genetic counseling with only board-certified, Genetic Counselors. The result is reduced time to diagnosis, elimination of unnecessary diagnostic testing, and improved outcomes. This leads to an increase not only in patient engagement, but also provider satisfaction, maximizing potential for future referrals into the trial.
Data Collection, Analysis and Utilization
We collect appropriate (de-identified) patient experience data and can help with submission to regulatory agencies as part of the clinical development plan. The result is more patient-centric protocols and programs, reflecting the day-to-day course of the disease and how it affects the patient and their family. We also analyze and collaboratively publish genetic trial data to strengthen FDA applications.
