Delivering benefits to patients and sponsors

Accellacare, ICON's clinical research network, provides greater access to patients and multi-specialty physicians for our customers. This network of research sites offers proven support and infrastructure for your clinical research.

Increased patient access
Accellacare Site Network unlocks access to 8.1M+ patients and streamlines the clinical trial process to deliver an unprecedented model of predictability and standardisation in clinical research. 

Quicker start-up
Our operational structure integrates centralised services, including but not limited to feasability, recruitment, budgeting and contracting, with dedicated on-site services and flexible resourcing to streamline our processes and accelerate study start-up.

Quality and compliant services
Consistent, centralised training programs in quality assurance and compliance ensures that we are inspection ready. Centralised Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and Core Operating Guidelines (COGs) as well as oversight and a focus on quality data.

Site and patient burden assessment for protocol optimisation
We work with you to review the study protocol and time and motion analysis enables us to review the burden level of the trial on the investigative site and the patient. This together with industry data collated from multiple studies, across a wide spectrum of therapeutic areas and indications, helps us to identify the potential risks of delays in recruitment and enables us to develop a site and patient solution that meets the challenges of your specific study.

Accellacare's structure of centralised and on-site services and capacity for flexible resourcing result in agile clinical operations to reduce the site and patient burden.

Patient Voice

Managed by Accellacare, the Patient Voice programme enables us to leverage the patient perspective for feasibility, recruitment and retention. This research and insight, based on information from patient surveys, forums and focus groups, also supports our patient recruitment and retention team and therapeutic specialists as they identify the key milestones in the patient journey.

By leveraging this information we are able to develop protocol-specific support solutions and patient engagement strategies resulting in a more holistic, patient-centric approach. Using the patient profile and the treatment pathway to further define who the patient is, we create a customised recruitment and retention strategy for the entire study.
