On-Demand Webinar | How sponsors can leverage community sites to increase enrollment speed and patient access

Recorded on: February 18, 2021


The clinical trials industry is ripe for a change. The cost of drug development has skyrocketed and the cost of running trials has grown 3x since 2000. Sponsors have tried to reverse this rising cost trend by partnering even more with the largest sites, but this model will only limit access to patients.

Reducing trial costs will require reinventing the partnership model between sponsors and sites by enabling ALL sites (not just large sites but community sites) to offer the right trials to their patients. This model will ultimately increase enrollment speeds and improve patient access for sponsors and sites.

Join Inato for a conversation on how sponsors can leverage community sites to increase enrollment speed and patient access.


During this webinar, leaders from sponsors and sites will learn:

  • Why the role of sites needs to evolve in recruiting for clinical trials
  • How sponsors are engaging community sites to increase enrollment speed
  • Strategies to improve patient access
  • How sites and sponsors can partner to increase diversity in clinical trials
