CHICAGO, Sept. 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Allscripts (NASDAQ:MDRX) announced today its latest initiative to improve population health, Allscripts eRecruit™ services. This multi-faceted initiative will offer services and technology to support physicians with referring patients to clinical trials, and life sciences and clinical research organizations to reduce clinical studies’ time and cost. This, in turn will help bring new treatments to the market more quickly.
Allscripts eRecruit, the initial offering of Allscripts Clinical Trials Solutions, enables more effective clinical trials recruitment from Allscripts broad provider network and large patient population. eRecruit focuses specifically on helping CROs determine if a trial is feasible within the Allscripts population, and facilitating enrollment of the qualified patients the trial requires. The solution also assists with recruiting patients to participate in these studies through engagements with their providers. This offering provides an avenue for clinical research and life sciences organizations to better recruit for treatment research, providers to find relevant clinical trials for their patients, and patients to engage in innovative care.
Allscripts is partnering with ePatientFinder® to further eRecruit’s patient matching, outreach and recruiting capabilities. The ePatientFinder Clinical Trial Exchange™ platform helps physicians learn about the latest clinical trial options for their patients to provide high-quality referrals.
“We very excited to partner with Allscripts to provide their large provider base access to the Clinical Trial Exchange, the only platform of its kind that leverages the trusted physician-patient relationship and EHR data to match patients with trials for advanced care,” said Tom Dorsett, CEO of ePatientFinder. "We applaud Allscripts for bringing eRecruit to both the provider and life-science communities.”
“Allscripts eRecruit is the latest way that Allscripts is connecting communities to foster population health,” said Jay Bhattacharyya, Allscripts Vice President and General Manager, Payer/Life Sciences. “Providers want to keep up with the latest research that helps improve patient outcomes. eRecruit helps providers better connect their patients to these clinical trials. We are excited to continue to expand our offerings in this space and lead the way in population health innovation.”
