Healthcare needs a clinical trials process for the modern age. Despite the potential for almost limitless connectivity, clinical research often follows a decades-old model. A finite number of leading urban medical center dominate research, resulting in narrow patient populations. Furthermore, too many citizens don’t have an opportunity to participate, and many trials fail to enroll enough participants on time.
A modern approach to clinical research, such as the Health Catalyst Research Offering, responds to historic enrollment and collaboration limitations and other common challenges by using research-grade data to connect more patients with clinical research opportunities.
The Research Offering connects hospitals, medical centers, biopharmaceutical companies, and clinical research organizations (CROs) and helps these groups search for patients eligible for real-world studies and trials. A significant update to existing research practices, the tool features two core components, a collaborative research network (the Health Catalyst Research Network™) and intelligent search function and services (Health Catalyst Touchstone Match™):
Key partnerships among a multisystem provider network, a nationally integrated data asset, scalable infrastructure, data expertise, and a team of data analytics enable researchers to confidently make clinical decisions. With this multifaceted approach, the Research Offering aims to enable clinical trials as a care option that reduces waste, improves outcomes, and increases revenue.
