The Opin Advantage
Opin's empowered patient-to-trial approach aims dramatically reduce recruitment timelines, increases reach and improve identification of eligible patients.
Opin's proprietary precision social media marketing and search optimisation technologies mean access to a world of online patient groups outside of traditional databases. 53% of the world’s population uses social media: 3.6 billion people spending on average two hours per day engaging in online social networks looking for health information.
Direct access to motivated patients that self-select research opportunities significantly reduces recruitment timelines. Augmenting traditional recruitment approaches, Opin’s approach delivers eligible patients quickly and offers a degree of automation in the pre-screening process. Opin also have extensive experience in gaining ethics approvals for recruitment content.
Opin collects and structures each trial’s eligibility criteria (inclusion and exclusion) and presents this as a high-level patient-led digital triage to achieve deterministic, not probabilistic, matching of patients, reducing burden on trial sites and investigators.
Our recruitment team works alongside trial sites to provide a bespoke service to support trials where recruitment has stalled or slowed, or if eligibility parameters may prove to be challenging. Creating dedicated trial landing microsites within the Opin platform, precision social media marketing strategies and more extensive digital triage.
Opin's key asset is a deep and growing pool of validated patient profiles for trials to access to kick-off begin their recruitment journey. The pool of data expands every hour of every day, augmented by regular surveys that patients and carers respond to, sharing their health status, experiences and outcomes.
Diversity and equitable access is very important in trials and accessing hard to reach populations is our specialty. Opin offers a range of language and cultural advisory services associated with recruitment. We can create social media content and targeting campaigns in a range of languages and cultural contexts.
