The biopharmaceutical industry is investing billions of dollars in clinical trials and loses countless millions on patients leaving during a clinical trial or on patients lost to follow-up after a trial has ended. The Be the Partner platform can potentially save trial sponsors millions of dollars per trial. Be the Partner is an exclusive SaaS platform providing a means for engaging active trial participants, trial alumni and future trial participants, designers and patient advocates, while maintaining required patient anonymity. Be the Partner adds value to the services of sponsors, CROs and Health IT companies that work inside clinical trials while bringing new and unique services outside the trial. The Be the Partner platform will open a new and valuable value proposition that does not exist today: once a patient has left a trial, the sponsors will have access to this patient. The platform runs in the USA and will be expanded along with data privacy and data safety regulations to 32 countries in 2017. Visit www.bethepartner.com.
