We had an incredible time attending SCOPE Summit 2023 in sunny Orlando, Florida.
Thanks to a great turnout, we met many inspirational guests. We enjoyed in-depth conversations about the latest innovations in patient care with people equally passionate about facilitating remarkable experiences.
We also attended many engaging presentations, confirming our belief that hybrid methodologies are the best option for genuinely patient-centric clinical trials.
Our booth theme was “pop by our booth”, where we made freshly popped popcorn and gave out keychain poppers and popping candy to everyone who popped by. We also enjoyed visiting some of your booths. One booth, in particular, enticed us with adorable puppies.
Here are some key takeaways from our time at SCOPE summit 2023.
There’s a real taste for hybrid trials
During the summit, we spoke to many sponsors, supporting them to think creatively about how they could implement a hybrid strategy in their trials.
Our Executive Vice President, Patient Services, Caroline Jackson, amplified sponsor interest during her presentation, “Achieving The Impossible: Maximising Participant Experience and Data Quality in a Complex Rare Disease Study”.
Several sponsors approached us afterwards to share how this case study resonated with them. They notably recognised the difficulty of having such high success rates with complex PBMC isolation from patient homes.
A bespoke hybrid approach can work for any indication, and you can partner with us to find the best options for you and your patients—for example, a mix of complex home assessments with white glove travel services for site visits.
Consolidation is key
Many sponsors we spoke to agreed consolidating processes into a more effective, singular process is vital for patient, site and study team alignment.
Our mobile health, patient travel, reimbursement and supply chain logistics services, underpinned by cutting-edge technology, reduce the need for multiple vendors. Fewer vendors mean simplified communication and maximised organisation throughout the clinical trial process.
Streamlining patient and site engagement is a win-win; with primarius, the technology underpinning it all, we make this even more accessible.
Patient Centricity is gaining momentum
Decentralised clinical trials continue to be a popular talking point, but we were delighted to see a broader focus on patient centricity from SCOPE participants. It was refreshing to see many patient advocates, sponsors and CROs agree that putting patients first is necessary. Something we have advocated for a long time.
All speaker types discussed the importance of putting patient care at the same level as data and quality by using a comprehensive approach to improve the patient experience and retention, not just the bottom line.
If you didn’t get the opportunity to meet us during the exhibition or want to pick up where we left off, please get in touch.
We’ll be back at booth 522 next year!
