Patient Database and Recruitment

Our research database is comprised of over 5,000 patients and has the ability to track and sort by patient traits and medications.

The research database is comprised of 90% private practice referrals and 10% word of mouth. The patient population of Sherman is naive to participation in clinical trials, as there is no competing research site in the Texoma area. The positive attitudes and the demand for research within this community are the driving force behind our prodigious database.

Our facility utilizes recruitment specialists on site to continue to build our database with Social Media, Google, and website traffic. IRB approved study specific advertisements as well as general site advertisements are also used to boost recruitment success.
