How GuideStar Works
When a trial opportunity is brought to GuideStar, we meticulously evaluate the protocol to gauge:
- Investigator interest
- Patient population and enrollment potential
- Study coordinator experience and current workload
- Feasibility within the hospital and clinics
Once we determine that a trial is a good fit, we work with our sponsors every step of the way to move the trial quickly through the start-up process. We believe clinical trial success depends on solid sponsor-site communications, so we develop plans to ensure ongoing contact and feedback. Prior to study activation, we develop a comprehensive enrollment strategy and logistical plan, including investigator and staff training, to ensure compliance and to meet enrollment goals.
