Heather Almonte
Director, Project Management, Patient Recruitment & Retention

Heather Almonte is the Director of Project Management for the Patient Recruitment and Retention division within Bioclinica. Heather has more than 15 years of clinical research experience and has an exemplary track record in delivering clinical trials on time and under budget.

Prior to joining Bioclinica, Heather was responsible for the clinical operations of the Immunology and Urgent Care Divisions at Octapharma USA. She was responsible for developing global recruitment and retention strategies to accelerate study enrollment and decrease patients lost to follow-up. Heather's therapeutic experience includes cardiology, endocrinology and infectious disease (AIDS), oncology (non-small cell lung carcinoma, multiple myeloma), CNS and rheumatoid arthritis. She received her BS in Pharmacology/Toxicology from the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia and an MBA from Drexel University.


As an industry, we assign considerable resources and money to the recruitment and enrollment of patients, but tend to focus less effort on finding patients that drop out of the trial. We know that lost patients compromise the integrity of our data, and therefore regulatory submissions. However, replacing lost patients with new patients costs money and takes time.
