Patient Voice And Advocacy

At the core of our company is the patient voice - we listen and learn to truly understand a patient’s condition, their unique personal experience and specific needs as part of patient engagement. Early Access Care understands the importance of patient insights in designing an early access program, and carefully listening to the patient journey. In many conditions, the patient care provider is an equally important element.

Our Involvement In Patient Advocacy Can Include The Following:

  • Collaboration with patient community on protocol, eligibility criteria, and standard of care
  • Incorporating the patient voice throughout early access communication and patient facing materials
  • Community education

Case Study – Patient Voice

EAC was asked to meet with a patient community to develop an early access protocol with insights to the patient experience in a neurodegenerative condition where the patient voice and community was not well defined. EAC brought together individuals at various stages of disease, and in some cases care providers, to engage in a panel discussion. Participants were carefully screened to ensure balanced perspective. EAC carefully listened to unique personal experiences important in the conduct of the early access program that may otherwise not be optimized. Patient and care provider insights were incorporated in the early access protocol. The overall result was that patients and care providers had a direct impact on the inclusion criteria of the protocol, as well as the Visit Schedule. Participants were also involved in the Informed Consent development and patient facing materials. The participants learned about early access and more importantly, created a protocol that heard and reflected the patient voice.

Case Study – Physician Education

Early Access Care was present to speak with Health Care Providers (HCPs) and patients at 3 major scientific meetings within 6 months of Expanded Access program launch. This posed an opportunity to educate HCPs and patients about expanded access for those interested in learning more. This was scientific community not previously engaged in Expanded Access.
