As a PPCP provider, we offer specific services for you. Firstly, we will contact you for thoughts, comments, or concerns related to your patient’s enrollment in a clinical trial prior to setting up their first appointment. Then, once your patient joins the study we will notify you through eCW of your patient’s participation. In addition, we will provide real-time updates of their lab results as they are received during the trial. Lastly, we will always make you aware, as promptly as possible, of any changes in your patient’s health in between their visits with you.
