Clinerion and eClinicalHealth, innovative companies working in the area of electronic patient recruitment, have announced a collaboration between the two companies and their respective platforms, Clinerion’s Patient Recruitment System and eClinicalHealth’s Clinpal.
Under the terms of the collaboration, Clinerion and eClinicalHealth will leverage the complementary nature of their respective technologies by offering them in tandem to hospitals and sponsor companies/CROs.
Clinerion and eClinicalHealth touch the clinical trials process at different and complementary points. Clinerion’s Patient Recruitment System (PRS) supports the clinical trial process by identifying and recruiting suitable patients through real-time search of millions of Electronic Healthcare Records (EHRs) within its growing global network of participating hospitals. eClinicalHealth’s Clinpal represents a comprehensive electronic platform for engaging and recruiting patients through direct patient facing web solutions, while at the same time running sophisticated workflows which guide both the patient and the site through the clinical trial process. Together, these two technologies have the potential to augment each other’s effect by combining Clinerion’s powerful Big Data tools with the direct, individualized patient/physician engagement offered by Clinpal.
“We are excited about the new horizons this collaboration offers for our clients,” said Ulf Claesson, CEO of Clinerion. “Clinerion’s PRS quickly fills the patient pool of a study with suitable candidates using our patented search technology. Clinpal further replenishes this pool by making sure we capture individual patients directly, and prevents leaks by engaging with patients and improving their experience of the study.”
“The Clinpal Team is eager to engage with Clinerion to advance technology-enabled clinical trials. Together, we can deliver enhanced patient engagement, reduce site burden, and expedite working practices on behalf of CROs and our joint Sponsors,” said Karl Landert, chairman of the board and CEO of eClinicalHealth.
