INFOSHEET 01: Use the voice of patients to enhance clinical trial engagement and experiences

We get you important patient insights through expertly crafted patient studies and surveys, and guide you in taking action

Despite the growing evidence of the benefits and need to involve patients in creating clinical study experiences, over a third of sponsors still don’t solicit any feedback from patients. And companies are still failing to prioritise patient engagement initiatives and the integration of patient perspectives.

Clearly there is a disconnect between the recognised need for elevated patient engagement and the steps taken to implement the necessary processes.


Increasing the level of patient engagement in your clinical design requires budget, conducting institutional and ethics reviews, establishing teams to lead patient experience and engagement activities, and much more. Building a framework that can support an engagement process requires cross-stakeholder collaboration, which can be a time-consuming and exhaustive process. It’s understandably difficult for sponsors to know where to begin. But that’s where we come in.

Innovative ways to improve partnerships with patients
We find innovative and relevant ways to engage with and glean insights from patients to improve the experience for both participants and sites. From a wide variety of patient survey solutions to analysis and medical writing, we give you access to real-world data and patient reported outcomes, and guide you into leveraging them for better and faster enrolment and retention.


The pressure is on to be more patient-centric in order to recruit patients onto clinical studies, and improve clinical study experiences so they want to keep taking part. To remain human-focussed, the patient voice needs to be incorporated into every part of a clinical study.

At COUCH Health, we have the tools to not only glean the insight you need, but guide you in implementing it too.

Get in touch to see how we can help you get the knowledge you need.

Emotion-driven clinical trial marketing: A missed opportunity?
Whether we’re conscious of it or not, our emotions play a huge role in day-to-day decision making. Psychological scientists have long explored emotional influences on decision making. Experts like Herbert Simon, a American Nobel Laureate scientist, speak extensively about how emotions can influence, skew and determine the outcome of so many decisions we’re confronted with every day.

Can involving patients in design transform the clinical trial experience?
While the research space is a heavily regulated environment and there are rules that we must abide by, this doesn’t mean clinical study materials have to be ‘boring’ or the overall study design must be company driven. There’s still opportunity to get creative and get and even better, get patients involved with design. And there’s big benefits of doing this, too!
