Make the Right Connections for Clinical Research Success
Research organizations have long struggled to find qualified patients for their research projects which can lead to recruitment challenges, delayed results, and budget overruns. The presence of a global pandemic added a new level of complexity that further slowed or paused many research efforts. Fits and starts, regardless of the reason, can cost sponsors millions of dollars per day.

Patient identification, education, and coordinated enrollment are all critical to launching and finishing every patient-focused research project. If any of these slips, enrollment could stall, derailing the project timeline and budget.

DrFirst partners with pharmaceutical manufacturers, clinical research organizations, patient recruitment companies, market research organizations, advertising agencies, and a host of other companies to reduce the time and cost involved with finding, communicating, educating, and inviting patients to participate in various forms of research.
