Study Feasibility, Site Management, Monitoring and Patient recruitment & Patient Retention offer major challenges to the executives from clinical researcher, clinical project, clinical operations, innovation, intelligence, medical Operations with potential for significant impact on time lines, budgets, CRA talent rejuvenation, collaborations & partnerships and ultimately the scientific integrity of the trial itself.Many factors affect the recruitment of patients and difficulty in finding suitable patients is driving the development of many innovative methods for accessing new patient groups. How the Risk Based Monitoring and Big Data can have a significant impact in clinical trials.The artificial intelligence, innovative channels of communication, rise of social media & Blockchain means that new technologies and changing strategies for communication can be used to have feasibility right at first & great effect to reach out to patients directly.Additionally outreach through patient advocacy groups/communities, social service agencies are becoming more important to communicate with patients viable for trial participation as well as for those already enrolled in clinical trials.
