Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 4th Annual

Enrollment Planning, Participant Engagement and Recruitment

Patient Insights, Patient-Facing Tech, and Analytics to Predict and Improve Patient Recruitment

5-6 October 2021

 

We are pleased to announce production of Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s “Enrollment Planning, Participant Engagement and Recruitment: Patient Insights, Patient-Facing Tech, and Analytics to Predict and Improve Patient Recruitment” being held 5-6 October 2021 at the Crowne Plaza Barcelona-Fira Center in Barcelona, Spain. SCOPE Europe will be hybrid conference in 2021 serving both in-person and virtual attendees.

 

Clinical researchers, clinical innovation leaders and study teams are working hard to better identify, understand and engage a diverse patient population. At the same time, the biopharma industry is embracing the new reality of hybrid, decentralized, remote trials and direct-to-patient models being both friendlier to the customer, our trial participants, and often more efficient. However, there are key challenges to developing both a patient-centric culture and systems in this new set of modalities, both of which 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, 4 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 2021. Topics to be discussed at the “Enrollment Planning, Participant Engagement and Recruitment” conference track include:

 

  • Lesson learned from COVID on patient recruitment: Strategies to thrive in a decentralized/hybrid model
  • Developing and executing a digital strategy for engagement, enrollment and retention in hybrid trials
  • Strategies for patient-centric trial planning and digital patient engagement
  • Integrating patient-centric initiatives and patient insights into your early strategy and planning
  • Harnessing the newest opportunities in online social networks, "influencers", disease communities, EMRs and Big Data to support decision making
  • Utilizing social listening, search advertising, mobile optimization, chatbots and social media for improved patient identification and recruitment
  • Consent and eConsent: Where and how to optimize the consent/e-consent process to ensure enrollment and retention
  • Recruitment of minority patients and special populations to ensure diversity in your trial population
  • Achieving a patient-centric approach to study design and enrollment operations with digital outreach, direct-to-patient (DTP) models, and real-world patient data
  • Utilizing data and analytics to better model and predict enrollment
  • EU data protection and privacy legislation’s impact on patient recruitment tools and tactics; how to share data across Europe (EMRs, interoperability, standardization)
  • Digitalization of clinical trials and emerging technology that will make a difference in recruitment: artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, Re-use of health data, patient-facing tech, wearables

 

If you would like to submit a proposal to give a presentation at this meeting, please click here.

 

We are looking for actual implementation stories and lessons learned, not theoretical talks. Co-presentations featuring speakers from different departments involved in the project are encouraged.

 

Please note that due to limited speaking slots, preference is given to pharmaceutical and biotech companies, regulators and those from academic /hospital centers. Additionally, as per Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s policy, a select number of vendors/consultants who provide products and services to these biopharmaceutical companies are offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.

 

The deadline for priority consideration is 15 April 2021.
