Scott Gray, Chief Executive Officer of Clincierge, discusses barriers to clinical trial participation and how his company reduces them.

As Mr. Gray explains, common barriers facing clinical trial participation include language barriers, travel and lodging logistics, and financial challenges. Clinicierge is an international service that reduces these barriers. At Clincierge, coordinators are assigned to each patient for the duration of their clinical trial enrollment. These coordinators are local to the patient, speak their native language, and are in the same time-zone. These coordinators also work to ensure that any travel is comfortable, accessible, and safe for patients and their travel companions. In addition, coordinators reduce stress of international travel by handling document translation, telephonic/in-person interpreters, and visa requirements.
