Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act sets the standard for protecting sensitive patient data. This impacts research directly by limiting resources available to help researchers and clinical site staff navigate challenges associated with patient recruitment and new strategies had to be established.
The strategy that, in our opinion, works best is to use recruitment facilities like Clinical List America. By using a recruitment facility you gain access to an enormous, HIPAA-compliant database of potential participants in your clinical trial. Clinical List America provides fast, effective, turnkey service to clients interested in reaching a nationwide audience.
