CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts, March 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Medway NHS Foundation Trust, part of the U.K.'s National Institute for Health Research Clinical Research Network Kent Surrey and Sussex (CRN KSS), announced they have joined the TriNetX global health research network in an effort to attract more clinical trials and enhance collaborative research with other healthcare organizations.
"TriNetX will provide the Trust with superior cohort discovery and analytics as well as trial design tools that will allow staff members to more easily query research data," said Dr. Edyta McCallum, Head of Research and Innovation at Medway. "In addition, joining the TriNetX network will improve the Trust's visibility to pharma and CROs as they design trials and identify sites for participation thereby potentially increasing the revenue and clinical benefits we can gain from additional trial participation."
TriNetX is the global health research network enabling healthcare organizations, biopharmaceutical companies and contract research organizations (CROs) to collaborate, enhance trial design, improve site selection and planning, and bring new therapies to market faster. Each member of TriNetX shares in the consolidated value of its global, federated health research network that connects clinical researchers in real-time to the patient populations which they are attempting to study.
TriNetX has partnered with healthcare organizations spanning 17 countries and thousands of sites, and with data providers covering 99% of US health plans to deploy a linked and continually updated global health research network representing over 300 million patients. TriNetX has been used to analyze over 13,000 protocols and has presented over 3,400 clinical trial opportunities to its HCO members.
