Eliminating Financial & Logistical Obstacles to Clinical Trial Participation
85% of clinical trials are delayed and 30% never happen, according to Pharmaceutical Outsourcing, simply because there aren’t enough volunteers to participate. At Greenphire, we provide sponsors, CROs and sites tools to effectively remove the non-medical blockers that prevent patients from enrolling or dropping out of a clinical study.
Patient Burden Tipping Points
Clinical trials offer promises of new cures, treatments, and improved quality of life. Yet, complex clinical trial protocols can sometimes make participation difficult for the patient and their family to lead an everyday life.
- More and longer visits
- Further travel distance
- More primary and secondary endpoints
- More procedures

Personalized Solutions for Every Patient Journey
Clara lives in Equador and is diagnosed with a rare disease. Her doctor said that there is a trial to treat her condition in the United States, but she is fearful to travel that far and the cost is prohibitive.
Alistair lives outside of London and would like to participate in a clinical trial in the city center. However, the time it would take away from work, plus the drive mileage and parking, deter him from enrolling, despite the promise of a new treatment.
Alexandra lives in Chicago and doesn’t have a car. Alexandra is part of a clinical trial but relies on friends and family to drive her to the clinic. If her caregivers aren’t available, she has to miss visits.
Tristan lives in Australia and is enrolled in a clinical trial, but due to his condition, he is increasingly unable to leave his home. He may miss visits and treatments as a result.
Eiko lives in Japan and was en route to Seattle with a heart monitor when her flight was cancelled. She doesn’t know what to do, who to call or if she will miss her scheduled visit abroad.
Levi lives in Israel and his caregivers typically take him to his appointments. However, if they don’t take him, he may forget to arrive when he needs to.

Removing Obstacles, Enhancing Diversity
Removing financial and logistical challenges helps to ensure that a diverse base of study participants enroll in a clinical study. Greenphire weighs in on recent FDA guidance.
“A medical treatment that is effective for one ethnic group may not have the same effects on another group. By conducting clinical research among genetically diverse populations, we gain critical insight and confidence into the safety and efficacy of the drug across all patient populations who will be using the drug if approved.”
