Improving patient experience and population health while lowering cost of care not only contributes to the “triple aim”, but also offers significant value to the healthcare industry as a whole.
(PRWEB) November 02, 2015
PMG Research, Inc. (PMG), in collaboration with several partners including a biopharmaceutical services provider, pharmaceutical sponsor, market research organization, and local healthcare institution, has co-authored a white paper entitled Clinical Research as a Care Option: Driving Patient Experience and Satisfaction.
Clinical research participants with type 2 diabetes were surveyed throughout their participation in a four-year ongoing clinical study and compared to nationwide baseline data. According to the data presented in the white paper, 100% of patients surveyed indicated that participating in the clinical study improved their interest and involvement in the healthcare, and reduced the overall cost of their healthcare. In addition, 95% agreed that their overall quality of care was significantly or somewhat better.
The white paper was released at the Quintiles Site Vision Forum in Charlotte, NC on October 30. The Site Vision Forum brought together several sites to discuss key trends and areas for additional collaboration and support. PMG Research CEO Jennifer Byrne was a featured speaker at the forum.
“It is a testament to the evolving clinical trials industry that site organizations are working together to improve how trials are conducted while looking for innovative solutions to industry concerns. PMG Research was honored to have participated in the Site Vision Forum, and we are proud of the collaboration that went into this white paper,” explains Jennifer Byrne. “The data illustrates that improving patient experience and population health while lowering cost of care not only contributes to the “triple aim”, but also offers significant value to the healthcare industry as a whole.”
