Case Study: Automated Appointment Reminders

Case Study Highlights:

  • Introduction of a tailored, automated appointment reminder system.

Clinical trials are a cornerstone in medical advancements. A premier clinical trial site was facing an unexpected challenge - nearly 50% of participants consistently missed their appointments, leading to logistical nightmares and potential jeopardy of the trial's success.

The Challenge:

Occasional forgotten appointments are par for the course in any field, but the consistent trend observed here was alarming. Missed appointments had a domino effect - from disrupting workflow and increasing operational expenses to putting immense stress on the clinical staff and affecting their morale. A robust solution was essential to keep the trials on track.

  • Timely reminders dispatched via text messages, voice calls, and emails, with HIPAA-compliant security measures in place.
  • Easy prompts allowing patients to confirm, cancel, or reschedule appointments, making the system accessible even for older demographics.
  • Real-time appointment status updates for the trial site, integrating seamlessly with their existing infrastructure.

Impactful Results:

The transformation was swift and evident. Recruit Qualified's solution made waves:

  • A striking XX% increase in appointment adherence.
  • Feedback from patients highlighted an enhanced experience, especially appreciating the ease of rescheduling.
