Frequently Asked Questions

Visit compensation varies by clinical trial, the complexity of follow-up required, the expected visit duration, and a provision for travel time. Compensation is based on a premium over market rates for the required credential or specialty.
Absolutely. Most of our HEROs work full-time. Visits are generally conducted on days off, weekends, and weekday evenings to accommodate this. Hawthorne Effect HERO visits should be considered a source of additional income as well as a source of professional satisfaction.
Yes, we have a custom learning resource center (Hawthorne University) where HEROs obtain the assessments they need per clinical trial protocols. The online system is modular and user-friendly, allowing both HEROs and the Hawthorne Effect team to track certifications. HEROs who have obtained certifications through other platforms such as CITI or BlueCloud can upload them to their HERO profiles.
Yes, an attractive aspect of the Hawthorne Effect model is that visits are planned weeks in advance so that they can fit around your busy schedule. When you are offered a visit opportunity, you will be asked to indicate your availability, generally within a two-week window, that will be matched with patients’ availability. Hawthorne Effect provides technical and project manager support in visit scheduling.
Yes, you may accept or decline opportunities. Each visit invitation is its own opportunity. The choice will be yours; you need only to select visits that are amenable to your schedule and preferences.
HEROs are engaged on a per visit basis as independent contractors.
Hawthorne Effect curates the latest technologies for patient assessments, data capture and transfer, communications, scheduling, and more. As a HERO, you will be part of exciting clinical trials where the most contemporary therapies, drugs, and devices are being evaluated and introduced into the healthcare system. You will have the first line of sight on patients' response to new therapies, and your role will make an important impact on the evolution of healthcare.
Visits will generally take place in the patient's home or in another mutually convenient location that is appropriate for the follow-up required. If you are an independent physician with your own office that is convenient to the patient, you may choose to invite the patient to have their visit conducted in your office.
The visits will be fairly close to where you live or work, based upon your preferences. You can define how far you want to drive (for example, no more than 30 miles, or whatever number works for you). But we won't ask you to fly somewhere or drive long hours to a visit that’s far away, unless you have indicated a preference for travel. If you have more than one home or would like to conduct visits while traveling away from home, we will provide you with the opportunity to share this information with us via multiple address fields in your HERO profile.
We match people by geography, skills, and certifications that correspond with the patient and the clinical study. If you’re matched with a patient, we will find a schedule that works for you and the patient.
No, you would not be on-call. The schedules for clinical trial visits are known well in advance, which makes it easy to plan ahead. This helps us schedule a visit on a particular date/time that is within a window of possible options that work for both you and the patient. No "on-call" scheduling or "office hours".
Not necessarily. The providers we credential as HEROs do not treat patients or prescribe medication but rather perform a data collection role with patients during follow-up visits. If you don’t have an active license, you won’t be matched with follow-up visits that require a license. But you can still become a HERO and perform follow-up visits that don’t require an active license.
Yes, we provide each HERO with professional liability insurance via a pooled risk policy for a period of one year following each visit.
Visit duration will reflect the number and nature of assessments performed. Visits may be as short as 15 minutes or as long as 2 hours. For complex cardiovascular trials, visits generally run 60 - 90 minutes. When you are extended a visit invitation, you will be informed of the expected visit duration.
Visit cadence will depend largely on your geography as well as the maturity of the company. As our company’s client base and project volume grows, visit opportunities will increase. We will keep HEROs informed as new projects are kicked off in their geographies.
