Health Awareness began conducting Clinical Trials in 1999. Our caring and knowledgeable staff is comprised of highly trained and experienced Clinical Researchers. We have skilled professionals in the following departments: Investigators, Managers, Coordinators, Regulatory, Budgets & Contracts, Quality Assurance and Recruitment.
With experience on hundreds of studies, we have a strong track record of meeting or exceeding study goals for our Sponsors. One of our top priorities is to carefully choose studies that are aligned with our site’s capabilities and patient population. This enhances the probability of our Sponsors’ success in meeting enrollment within desired time lines. We always welcome an opportunity to be the first site to screen for a study. In order to facilitate rapid study start-up, we utilize Central IRB’s, Central Labs, and have a quick review and turnaround time for Contract negotiation and Regulatory documents.
We are uniquely positioned to tap into a vast and diverse population of nearly 2 million people within Northern Palm Beach, Martin, and St. Lucie Counties. Due to this unique position, we are one of only a few Multi-specialty Research Sites with access to the populations in all 3 Counties.
Our site utilizes a dynamic, searchable Clinical Trial Management Software called Clinical Conductor to house our rapidly growing Research Database. We are actively growing our database with thousands of new interested candidates each year within our target markets of Palm Beach, Martin & St. Lucie Counties. We collect relevant, useful information that allows our on-site Recruitment Call Center to reach out to appropriate potential study subjects. We have a multi-faceted process of data-mining and pre-screening in order to bring in highly interested and eligible candidates for our studies.
We have relationships with several medical facilities and specialists in order to conduct almost any type of clinical trial. This includes but is not limited to: Private practices, Hospitals, Imaging Centers, Walk-in clinics, Retirement communities, assisted living facilities, surgery centers, physical therapy centers, and rehabilitation centers.
We are surrounded by beautiful beaches, golf courses, and growing family communities. Our database is made up of a wide range of Age, Race, and Nationality.
