Our group currently has over 140,000 active patient charts and we have been utilizing electronic medical records since 2008. The research department has full access to these electronic medical records which allows us to do a quick search for potential subjects for our trials. It also allows us to give credible and trackable statistics on feasibilities.
Our patient population is relatively research naïve. We service a population of approximately 250,000 since we draw from many of the smaller surrounding towns. Our population is mainly comprised of Caucasion, African American, Hispanic and Asian.
We utilize only Central IRBs
