Lost to Follow-Up

Patients lost to follow-up represent the number one cause of clinical trial delays. Bioclinica's lost to follow-up service, Bioclinica L2FU, optimizes clinical trial success by greatly reducing the number of patients lost to follow-up and, with them, their important data. We locate lost to follow-up clinical trial patients, with the support of a specialized team and a secure online portal that facilitates the encrypted exchange of patient information.

Bioclinica is a global company specialized in utilizing data, technology and patient insights to enable more efficient trial conduct. We have the experience of successfully navigating the increasingly globalized clinical research sector where legal, regulatory, language, cultural and other factors present additional challenges.

While many patient-tracking services are private investigation firms that offer patient tracking as one of their services, Bioclinica L2FU focuses solely on finding patients who become lost to follow-up. Through personal contact and the facilitation of long-term patient data capture, Bioclinica L2FU can increase the effectiveness of patient retention efforts via continued patient/caregiver engagement through the reliable delivery of phone calls, text reminders, retention materials, reminders, newsletters and other interventions to study subjects. We know clinical research and patients, and we fully understand the patient process, giving us the Bioclinica advantage.
