Patients retention for the whole period of clinical trials is increasingly becoming a priority task, that’s why it is very important to focus on the needs of direct clinical trial participants, that is to be patient-oriented.
Big distance from the clinical site, long and early visits are stressful for the patient and often become the reason of not only untimely leave of clinical trial but also a barrier for taking participation in the clinical trial at all.
SMO-Group is glad to propose the service of patients’ accommodation at a hotel in the city where the clinical site is located. Proposing such service, we carefully approach this issue. Striking the balance between expenses optimization for a Client and the quality of provided services, we don’t lose sight of important principles such as:
- Convenient location from the clinical site
- Comfortable rooms with private facilities and possibility of luggage storage
- Meals service at the hotel (special meals (diet) for the patients can be provided on request)
- Patient’s confidentiality
Patient’s opportunity to have a comfortable rest, to stay the night before leave or before early visit may help to adapt for treatment and ensure patients retention during the clinical trial.
