Solving the Biggest Bottleneck in Medical Research
New MD-Online Tool Streamlines Clinical Trial Recruitment
Parsippany, NJ, August 13, 2013 – As the cost of clinical trials continues to climb, a new tool offers a solution for speeding the lengthy patient recruitment process. MD On-Line’s (MDOL) latest offering, ID Recruit, represents a breakthrough in clinical trial recruitment, helping pharma easily identify the best candidates for trials.
Available through the doctor’s practice workflow, ID Recruit identifies patients for clinical trials based on key criteria (i.e. age, condition, etc.) and puts the information directly into the hands of doctors.
Matching patients to the right clinical trials is considered one of the “biggest bottlenecks in medical research.” With the increased use of electronic health records (EHRs), doctors are keeping a better pulse on their patients. Now, the addition of ID Recruit allows these physicians to directly connect their patients to relevant clinical trials. ID Recruit offers a direct and logical way to engage participants beyond traditional methods such as web forms and 1-800 numbers.
“ID Recruit saves precious time during the clinical trial process, allowing researchers to focus on what matters most – the development and approval of life-saving medicines and treatments,” said Jeff Meehan, chief commercial officer of MDOL. “It is an important leap in making clinical trial recruitment more efficient on a larger scale.”
Through ID Recruit, doctors are given access to background information on which clinical trials are currently in progress, how many patients within their office qualify and why these trials could benefit patients.
From there, the doctor is able to contact the patients through the system to gauge their interest in moving forward with the trial, as well as provide important details including length of the trial and location for the study center.
