Facts ‘n Figures is linked in to the LA healthcare community like no other in the area. A good case study would be the recently completed NSCLC recruit. I came to you with a problem (how to find mNSCLC patients); you were able to quickly come up with a proposal, in this case reaching out to physicians to find out what’s feasible. In less than 24 hours you had spoken with several physicians and determined you would be able to recruit this study via physician referrals. These efforts and results are not all too common in the industry.
