Clinical studies traditionally take many years and cost hundreds of millions of dollars to design, run and analyze. The biggest challenges pharmaceutical companies face when it comes to clinical trials and research are usually patient recruitment (both in time and diversity), patient engagement and retention (patient adherence to the protocol, dropout rates) and the logistics of drug dispensing and counseling.

RXE2 taps into its vast network of community pharmacists and leverages their expertise, knowledge of their communities and patients and the trust they enjoy by their patients to help the pharmaceuticals resolve these challenges.”
