Median Accrual Ratio Metric


The purpose of this metric is to estimate the current accrual ratio for clinical trials in order to enhance our ability to develop performance interventions that increase actual participant accrual into clinical trials within the planned time period.



Reporting Requirements: Hubs will submit Median Accrual numerical data and TTC Plans starting in August 2021 (for 2020 data). 

CTSA Program hubs should utilize the time between now and the first data submission date to prepare local systems and infrastructure to facilitate capturing the data elements.

Institutions may have varying perspectives on their anticipated experiences in implementing the Median Accrual Ratio Metric Operational Guidelines as they are written. All submitted comments will be reviewed for further conversation.
