patient enrollment covid-19Enrollment, Engagement, and Retention

Enrollment and retention of participants will suffer during the pandemic, so take advantage of Castor’s easy-to-use enrollment portal, which can be customized to match the look and feel of your study messaging. After entering your inclusion criteria and informed consent documentation, participants are invited to the eConsent platform and are shown the informed consent form upon registering. Participants who elect to consent receive a screening survey, and the participant is added to the EDC platform, all automatically.
