Cambridge Healthtech Institute's
Patient-Centric Enrollment Planning and Engagement
Utilizing New Technology, Analytics and Outreach to Improve Patient Recruitment
17-18 September 2019
We are pleased to announce production of Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Patient-Centric Enrollment Planning and Engagement conference being held 17-18 September 2019 at the Crowne Plaza Barcelona-Fira Center
in Barcelona, Spain. Patient recruitment and up-front enrollment planning are critical to drug development programs, and if not adequately planned for or properly executed, can extend your development timeline by a number of years. Clinical researchers
and study teams are working hard to better identify, understand, and engage patients. Developing both a patient-centric culture and systems is key to enrolling and retaining patients throughout the life of a clinical trial. There are strategies, new
technologies and techniques to empower patients, improve outreach and better match trials to the patients who need them.
The gathering will be part of the Summit for Clinical Trials Operations Executives (SCOPE) Europe, a two-day event made up of shared plenary keynotes from biopharma thought leaders, five conference tracks focused on specific issues and functions within
the clin ops, innovation and research enterprise, informal and interactive breakout discussion groups, and networking. Please see the overall program map below for 2019.
