Recruitment Phase Reduced by 8 Months for Global Healthcare Company

Clariness provided us with excellent patient recruitment services for a non-alcoholic fatty liver disease trial. Their support included online advertising for the trial, patient referral to investigator sites via their ClinLife online platform at, a dedicated pre-screening Call Center and an investigator site communication program.

The combination of recruitment via their online platform and pre-screening at the Clariness Call Center has proved to be a very valuable tool for effectively monitoring, directing and controlling patient referrals to investigator sites. Both our company and the investigator sites are truly satisfied with the service. The high quality of patients referred has resulted in a large number of randomizations and a major reduction in screening efforts at the sites.
Since the start of their participation in the trial, Clariness has referred 55% of all randomized patients — reducing recruitment time by approximately 8 months.

In addition, the continuously updated analysis of referral and tracking data enabled quick alterations where needed and provided us with an optimal forecasting tool.
