A Multifaceted Approach to Diversity

Data-driven site selection

Confidently select high-performing sites using industry-wide, site-level data to identify sites that perform well operationally and have historically been successful in enrolling diverse patients to meet enrollment timelines and diversity enrollment targets.

  • Understand diversity gaps and set realistic diversity goals for diversity action plans by benchmarking and baselining clinical trial diversity against the industry.
  • Increase trial diversity by identifying sites that perform well operationally and can enroll a diverse population.

Insights from Patient Advocates

Create an experience designed for patients, by patients of diverse backgrounds.

  • Test your protocol design and trial materials with diverse patient advocates and experts before bringing them to the wider audience.
  • Design the most patient-friendly protocol to minimize burden and enhance the trial journey, enabling broader participation across diverse backgrounds.

Pre-trial and post-trial engagement

Engage, educate, and empower patients from all walks of life, before the trial begins and after the trial ends.

  • Educate a diverse pool of patients about clinical trial opportunities before the trial begins. 
  • Empower all patients with trial outcomes and future study opportunities after study completion, enabling patients to continue contributing to ongoing clinical trials.

Patient-Accessible Site Network

Access traditional, hybrid, and decentralized site network, all trained on Medidata’s DCT technologies, that is positioned and well-equipped to serve underrepresented populations.

  • Increase clinical trial accessibility for diverse populations through Circuit Clinical’s site network.
  • Equip local doctors to serve their community as a clinical research site. 
  • Add sites in communities where clinical research is not a care option.
