In the realm of clinical research, effective patient recruitment is a critical factor that directly impacts the success and timeline of research studies. Aspen Insights introduces Forge Standard, a cutting-edge patient recruitment solution designed specifically for clinical trial recruitment professionals. In this blog post, we will explore how Forge Standard simplifies the patient recruitment process, empowers recruitment professionals, and accelerates the enrollment of qualified participants. 


Centralized Patient Database: Candidate Identification 

Gone are the days of manually sifting through spreadsheets and multiple databases to find qualified clinical trial candidates. Forge Standard centralizes EMR data from multiple sources, allowing recruitment professionals to search through patient clinical record content with ease. With Forge Standard’s Candidate Identification feature, users can quickly match patients to trials by comparing text and structured data existing within patient clinical records to study protocol inclusion and exclusion criteria. Dramatically reducing the time spent on manually reviewing patient records, current research site users have experienced up to 66 hours saved in chart review during the recruitment process.  

Streamlined Patient Recruitment: 

Forge Standard offers an approach to track patient outreach, after the potential match list has been created. With its intuitive interface and powerful tools, recruitment professionals can efficiently identify candidates and add to their outreach queue. Additionally, the option for CTMS integration allows for seamless study tracking from patient matching to study execution.

No more guessing on who is in your patient population! Forge Standard empowers recruitment professionals to better understand their patient population with the Population Analysis tool.  By leveraging demographic, medical history, and geographical data, the population analysis dashboard can offer deep insights into your patient diversity including age, race/ethnicity, gender, and more.  Using the inclusion and exclusion criteria advanced search, population analytics can be used on filtered groups, as well to support Feasibility Analysis. 

Data-Driven Feasibility Analysis: 

The Feasibility Analysis tool allows your recruitment and clinical teams to identify the most relevant patient populations for specific studies within your own EMR.
