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.

7 important considerations for creating an inclusive clinical trial website
You might have noticed that all of us here at COUCH Health are big advocates for taking action to improve diversity and inclusion in the world of clinical research. ‘Taking action’ rather than simply talking about what we should be doing is really important to us. Which is why we put together information that can be used to make change, not just discuss it.

August 2020: diversity and inclusion in clinical trials round-up
Although the statistics have to change, we’re really pleased that conversations are still happening about the lack of diversity in clinical trials. More reports are coming to light about the lack of ethnicity reporting, and the underrepresentation of ethnic minorities. We hope this evidence and increased awareness will help bring changes not just for individual clinical trials, but across the whole industry.

If your clinical trial doesn’t have a website, do you even exist?
In a world where pretty much everything and everyone has an online presence, it’s almost unbelievable that not all clinical studies do.

Site-related factors that can impact patient recruitment
Joining a clinical study is a significant decision for anyone. Before a participant signs up for a clinical study, there are many factors that can influence how likely a patient is to take part. We have previously discussed the importance of patient engagement and the need for patient centricity as early as study planning stages.

Patient-related factors that can impact patient recruitment
Patient recruitment is, and always will be, a pain point for clinical research companies. It’s potentially the most challenging stage of any clinical study, as unsuccessful recruitment means big delays or failure. But you already know this. It’s why you’re here reading about what factors can impact patient recruitment.

Protocol-related issues that can impact patient recruitment
Many factors can impact a patient’s decision to take part in a clinical study. But what steps can the industry take to try to improve patient recruitment?  Sometimes, we need to go back to the basics and look to the very beginning of the clinical study process.
