Patients 'lost' from a clinical trial result in study delays, increased patient recruitment costs and compromised study data.

In fact, recruiting a patient costs five times more than retaining one.

L2FU, an affiliate of MediciGlobal Inc., provides critical solutions. We have years of experience proactively recovering lost study subjects. We proactively works with study sponsors, clinical sites and hospitals to swiftly recover patients and consequently, potential missing data.

We rely on:

Proven Processes

Minimizing the number of lost patients in a study requires proactive development and implementation of programs that keep patients interested and coming back for study visits. We also rely on access to public and proprietary databases containing millions of vital patient records.

Unique Online Portal

Our secure online portal is unique in the industry and allows information to be shared quickly and safely. The scope of access is limited and customized by function. Information is seamlessly exchanged across different time zones, in compliance with privacy laws and regulations. By putting this tool at the fingertips of study sites, patients can be located as soon as they are identified as missing. Finding and locating missing patients does not have to wait until the end of a study when data analysis is being conducted.
