Patient recruitment

Patient recruitment

Clinical trial enrollment

We connect patients and physicians to clinical trial sponsors and clinical research organizations (CROs) to help drive more effective and efficient clinical trials. Starting with powerful relationships in healthcare, Quest is building a complete end-to-end integrated platform that’s scalable and secure.

Efficient patient and physician recruitment and site validation are available today through Quest Clinical Trials Connect. It is designed to grow with evolving demand, leading to a broad solution for cohort profiling, patient-initiated pre-screening, and virtual trials.

Quest Clinical Trials Connect includes:

  • A time-saving process to identify and recruit patients for trials 
  • Efficient search and recruitment that can help deliver better results and better qualified patients
  • New ways to create and service virtual trials that look beyond the traditional challenges of fixed trial sites and capacity issues
  • A unique data set, with more than 58+ billion test results covering 355+ million patient lives and drawing from a relationship with half of US hospitals and physicians

Site/investigator validation and identification

Using the inclusion/exclusion criteria set, we can validate matched potential patient volumes to sites and investigators and help identify additional physicians with concentrations of potential patients.

Inputs

  • Inclusion/exclusion criteria
  • Investigator National Provider Identifier (NPI)
  • Planned or current study site locations
  • Quest data & 3rd-party data

Deliverables

  • Validated site list
  • Validated investigators
  • Confirmed patient population
  • Enhanced connection with physician community

Benefits

  • Locates the best clinical trial sites for optimal outreach to patients of interest
  • Identifies additional physicians as investigators or patient recruitment sources
  • Builds confidence in selective sites/investigators

Direct patient screening

We’re bringing patients and physicians together to change the face of clinical trials, while supporting them with academic studies and leading laboratory and specimen collection services.

Inputs

  • Inclusion/exclusion criteria
  • Investigator National Provider Identifier (NPI)
  • Planned or current study site locations
  • Geographical radius parameters
  • Quest data & 3rd-party data

Deliverables

  • Enrolled patients

Benefits

  • Personalizes outreach for a more effective recruitment program
  • Increases prescreening efficiency to lower screening burden and early attrition
  • Engages patients most likely to participate through study completion
  • Promotes personalized care recommendations

Physician outreach

We identify physicians and their patients who might qualify for clinical trials and inform them of the opportunity.

Inputs

  • Inclusion/exclusion criteria
  • Investigator National Provider Identifier (NPI)
  • Planned or current study site locations
  • Geographical radius parameters
  • Quest data & 3rd-party data

Deliverables

  • Validated site lists
  • Direct access to physicians with pre-identified patients who have not opted out
  • Informed and connected physician communities

Benefits

  • Locates the best clinical trial sites for optimal outreach to patients of interest
  • Identifies additional physicians as investigators or patient recruitment sources
  • Builds confidence in selective sites/investigators

Unlocking the future of patient-centered trials 

Site validation, patient recruitment, and physician recruitment solutions are only the first step in our  goal of bringing clinical trials forward as a new avenue of treatment to improve the health of patients.  We are reimagining clinical trial design so that in the future we can incorporate: Direct-to-patient trials that leverage in-home, self-administered testing and mobile care teams, who can administer therapeutics, collect samples, and capture biometric data 

  • Quest Patient Service Centers as potential screening sites and interim check-points 
  • Virtual Principal Investigators (PIs) or sub-PIs 

At the same time, we continue to make advancements in patient-centered recruitment, including:

  • Enriched identified data sets
  • Advanced cohort analytics
  • Enrollment and retention experienced-based outreach

Quest is committed to developing innovative solutions and relationships that can help accelerate the time to market of new therapeutics. By making connections between patients, physicians, and sponsors, together we can bring new hope to patients and their loved ones.
