As an industry, we spend time, money, and resources to enroll participants in clinical trials. Despite these efforts, 7 out of 10 patients will screen fail. What’s worse, a quarter of all clinical studies close because they fail to meet enrollment goals — all while viable recruiting partners are left on the sidelines.

Study Sponsors

Open up more opportunities for patients to discover your trial

Choose collaboration over competition

Citeline Connect brings together key stakeholders — sponsors, recruitment partners, healthcare organizations, and patient/disease advocacy groups — to better match patients to clinical trials. This enables sponsors to:

  • Broaden  your recruitment funnel
  • Optimize and accelerate enrollment
  • Pay for performance

With Citeline Connect, you also control who sees your eligibility criteria and site information, protecting your competitive edge.

  • Track the source of each patient referral

Recruitment Partners

Earn revenue by accessing more recruiting opportunities

More recruitment opportunities. Less stress.

As a patient recruitment partner, you know that winning sponsor business isn’t easy. You spend a significant amount of time and resources building relationships, responding to RFPs, getting vetted, signing paperwork — all just to win one paid recruitment opportunity. Then the work begins all over again. Citeline Connect offers a more efficient approach:

  • Go through the vetting process one time only
  • Sign one contract with Citeline Connect, vs. individual sponsors
  • Avoid complex system integrations with our easily accessible portal

Sponsor access, granted

You have patients who are interested in participating in clinical research. But without sponsor access, you lack the incentive, data, or technology you need to make a meaningful connection between a patient and a trial.

  • Enjoy a steady stream of opportunities with complete trial information
  • Choose the trials that best fit your patient populations
  • Use sponsor’s built-in patient prescreeners to produce quality referrals

Don’t chase patients. Or payments.

Imagine a world where you never have to ask another referral, “Did you enroll in that trial?” A world where you never hire a call center, send manual emails, or pick up a phone for follow-up.

  • See the status of all your referrals at a glance
  • Trust built-in verification processes of referrals
  • Automatic payment upon patient enrollment

Citeline Connect is simply another channel to do more of what you already do — and do it better.
