At Harte Group, we employ recruitment and site support tactics with principal investigators and their staff to engage and enroll patient candidates. We do this by identifying target locations using medical claims data - this removes the time delay often found with justifying and validating site targets.
In addition, we successfully created hub-and spoke environments with active referral networks who have access to patients. Our recruiting team conducts initial outreach to speak with PIs and site coordinators about their patient access, outreach methods, approach to patients and randomizing patient candidates. This has proven beneficial in creating this referral network.
With our external partners, we have access to over 280 million patient lives of data in the USA, we can leverage the tools and access to locate patients and the physicians who treat them using ICD-10 codes, inclusion and exclusion criteria from the protocol, input from medical staff, to identify the areas of the country, the physicians within certain communities, and the number of patients tagged to each of these physicians.
