Rapid Start-up

Clinical Research Consulting has a 30-year history of conducting successful clinical trials, recruiting patients that meet the eligibility requirements for a study in an efficient and effective manner. But executing on the study is only part of the story. We are proactive in ensuring that our processes are based upon industry best practices, from the point we execute a CDA with a CRO or Sponsor organization until the final close-out of the study.

Effective Volunteer Recruiting

One of the most important assets an independent clinical research site can offer is a strong base of volunteers interested in contributing to the clinical trial process, with diversity in age, gender, and medical indications.  We are proud to have a robust database that we have built and continually refresh through strong programs of community outreach, with over 6000 volunteers.  We design outreach campaigns to recruit for upcoming studies through:

  • Local media (radio, cable TV)
  • Community events and fairs
  • Website
  • Social media campaigns
  • Referrals from Investigators and local physician community

Our website is directly integrated with our clinical trials management system, enabling us to quickly capture details from people interested in your study and route them directly to a member of our study team for follow-up.

Our Experience

We have 30 years of experience in clinical trials and have been here through many evolutions of the industry.  Along with Sponsors and CROs, we have learned how to ensure safety for study subjects, execute protocols precisely, maximize subject retention, and provide reliable and responsive communication of study data throughout. Our experience is best exemplified by the companies we have worked with, the indications we have worked on, and the products we have helped bring to market:
