ePatientFinder®, a provider EHR-driven clinical trial recruitment has joined athenahealth’s More Disruption Please (MDP) program and is now part of the athenahealth Marketplace offerings — and its innovative solution for clinical trial recruitment is now available to athenahealth’s growing cloud-based network of more than 80,000 healthcare providers. The partnership with athenahealth represent ePatientFinder’s leadership role in solving the clinical trials recruitment challenge by leveraging the trusted physician-patient relationship and EHR data.
With access to millions of patient lives and powered by sophisticated algorithms from EHR data, ePatientFinder uses a three-tiered filtering process to help physicians identify and refer patients eligible for clinical trials and newly approved procedures that they likely would not have known about otherwise — with the goal of leaving no patient behind.
“Our patient-centric approach leverages the combined power of ePatientFinder’s Clinical Trial Exchange and EHR networks to create awareness of emerging clinical trial opportunities,” said , CEO of ePatientFinder. “In the past, patients could only hope that they might hear or see an advertisement on a billboard, on social media, or even on the side of a bus to make them aware of clinical trial options — for which they may or may not be qualified. Through ePatientFinder, patients can learn about the clinical trials that are right for them from their own trusted physicians.”
“An average of 86 percent of patients express interest in opting into the clinical trial screening process that we offer,” Dorsett said. “As we continue to scale our provider network throughout the country via a growing number of partnerships with EHR companies and trial sponsors, we’ll be able to help even more physicians help their patients.”
