Meeting the Needs of Today’s Clinical Trials
Driven by the Protocol. Unmatched in the industry, BBK Worldwide® enhances access to care, removes barriers to participation, and fosters long-term engagement with the RSG® Arrive travel program. Developed specifically for clinical research, RSG® Arrive is a concierge service that manages all patient travel – from simple ground transportation to complex international travel. At its core, RSG® Arrive features a commitment to care that transforms the patient experience while accelerating enrollment success.
Enhanced with Precision Support, a model based on matching support to the science of the protocol, RSG® Arrive continues to break new ground. It is the only travel program supplemented by levels of customized support that address the unique needs of each study patient population – replacing the all-too-common one-size-fits-all approach. Precision Support is aligned with the needs of a shifting clinical trial landscape brought on by scientific innovation and targeted treatment approaches.
RSG® Arrive works in tandem with RSG®Card, offering patients an important support option.

All you need is a brief conversation with Andrew to understand why he’s our RSG® Arrive Driver of the Month. A native of the Philadelphia area, he has been an RSG® Arrive driver for over two years. His assignments include taking patients with progressive neurodegenerative diseases to and from their study appointments, at times traveling two hours each way. He recognizes the challenges that some of the patients face and always tries to find opportunities to lighten their day with a smile or light conversation. “I try to take their mind off where they are traveling and why – even if it’s for a brief moment.”
Andrew derives great satisfaction from assisting those in need. “It’s nice to be involved in helping someone who needs help.” And as an RSG® Arrive driver, he knows he’s making a difference. “RSG® Arrive simplifies the process for patients. It takes them into a different mindset because they don’t have to worry about driving or getting a ride – they are just so happy someone is taking them. I’ve never seen anything but smiles.”
When not working, Andrew likes to play tennis and spend time at the seashore in the summer and at the Poconos in the winter. He is very proud of his son, who recently got engaged, and enjoys taking his 90-year old mother out to dinner, often twice a week.Past RSG®Arrive Drivers of the Month

Medical Records Translation
It’s an important service that can easily be overlooked. Just imagine a patient traveling to the United States from the Ukraine arrives for screening and is delayed at the study site because the medical records cannot be understood by the medical team. It happens more often than it should. That’s why we offer a translation service that uses only professional native speakers who specialize in translation of medical material and medical records. It’s done in advance, so the minute the patient arrives at the study site, the screening process can begin.Contact us to learn more
Visa Consultation and Procurement
Securing a visa for cross-border travel can be challenging, especially for inexperienced travelers. It can result in delays and even jeopardize participation. Just imagine if a newborn with spinal muscular atrophy needs to remain pre-symptomatic in order to qualify for a study; time is of the essence. There’s no room for delay. We ensure there are none by working with local government officials to facilitate visa procurement.Contact us to learn more
Imagine enrolling in a study that requires you, and perhaps your family, to relocate for a period of time. This could be disruptive and overwhelming – and for some, it could even be a barrier to participation. We ensure it isn’t by securing appropriate housing accommodations that meet the needs of each study participant.Contact us to learn more
