Benefits of Outsourcing Clinical Trials Travel Management
Patient retention and anonymity is crucial to meeting your overall clinical trial objectives, and outsourcing your patient travel and logistics is a key way to ensure this.
Outsourcing in clinical trials can be useful on a number of levels, particularly in regards to travel management. Patient retention and anonymity is crucial to meeting your overall clinical trial objectives, and outsourcing your patient travel and logistics is a key way to ensure this.
Here are just a few benefits to be gained from outsourcing your travel management:
When organizing patient transport and travel in-house, a proportion of your time will be engaged in the administration side of things. From coordinating patients to booking flights or reimbursing expenses, you can soon find your trial delayed or inconvenienced by excess paperwork. Outsourcing a travel management company eliminates this administration.
Budget control and cost saving
By entrusting a company who have spent years negotiating deals within the travel industry, you can ensure your patient expenses will remain within budget with an external company. In addition, you may find that by using an experienced company, you will save money in the long run as they are able to negotiate better deals through long-standing supplier relationships, not to mention reduced expenditure through more effective and efficient planning.
Patient recruitment can be a real issue in clinical trials, especially when it comes to encouraging patient involvement. Without a lot of the facts and plans presented to them, patients may feel more reluctant to participate. However, with a travel management company involved, you can ensure dedicated resources focusing on patient involvement, adding value and encouraging participation.
It can be difficult to ensure patient motivation and enthusiasm for your clinical trial, especially when there are many other aspects of organization, administration and logistics to consider. With a dedicated travel manager, a bigger focus can be placed on patient motivation to ensure they never miss an appointment, making your study run continuously and smoothly.
One of the biggest stumbling blocks in achieving a successful clinical trial is patient retention. Due to the anonymous nature of patient data in clinical trials, it can be difficult to create a rapport with patients. The external influence of a travel management company can help reduce the risk of patients leaving studies early.
