EMC Szpitale augments Clinerion’s patient coverage in Poland by joining the Patient Network Explorer platform. Patients at the hospital group will gain greater access to clinical trials, and actively support in accelerating the successful launch of innovative medical treatments.
Joining Clinerion’s hospital partner network gives EMC Spitale’s higher visibility to trial sponsors on their readiness to participate in clinical research on an international level. EMC Szpitale patients will gain better access to clinical care as the Patient Network Explorer draws international clinical studies to the hospital group, directly to the patients who will benefit most from participation in trials.
Patients will also benefit from the efficiencies created in the clinical research process by Patient Network Explorer which contribute to getting drugs faster to market. Patient Network Explorer’s efficiencies include accelerating study protocol development, identifying suitable trial sites, and speeding up patient search and identification for trial enrollment.
