ClinEdge Engage, a full-service patient recruitment and retention division of ClinEdge, announced the launch of PatientEngage, an active patient community and clinical trial matching service. PatientEngage is a new online platform that uses machine-learning algorithms, social media engagement, and patient advocacy networks to match eligible patients nationwide with currently enrolling clinical trials.
“By leveraging our experience in delivering customized clinical research solutions, including extensive experience in web-based patient recruitment efforts, the PatientEngage team has created a comprehensive suite of online engagement and retention tools. One example is our SMS texting platform, which contacts patients in real time with currently enrolling studies opportunities while also improving subject retention rates of ongoing trials,” said Christian Burns, president of ClinEdge.
“The recent expansion of our team—adding expertise in the areas of clinical operations, technology, social media development and management—enables the customization of our online patient engagement efforts to meet the strategic needs of each study protocol.”
PatientEngage builds on ClinEdge’s ongoing mission to help patients find, understand, and enroll in clinical trials that are suited to their individual medical needs. Patients can use PatientEngage at no cost, and all of its services are non-binding. PatientEngage will also allow ClinEdge’s clients to access an expanded database of potential subjects to boost recruitment for ongoing trials.
