CAMBRIDGE, MA – December 8, 2016 – TriNetX, the health research network, announced today that Nationwide Children’s Hospital signed a membership agreement to join the network to enhance and accelerate the development of new cures.
The TriNetX network is comprised of healthcare organizations representing over 57 million patients globally, biopharmaceutical companies and contract research organizations (CROs) who are working together to improve protocol design, site selection, patient recruitment, and collaborative research across a range of therapeutic areas and development stages.
Users of the TriNetX network can analyze patient populations with search criteria across multiple longitudinal data points, and TriNetX’s advanced analytics modules provide intelligence on which criteria have the most impact as well as the rate at which new patients present. Each data point in the TriNetX network can be traced to healthcare organizations who have the ability to identify individual patients, allowing clinical researchers to develop virtual patient cohorts that can be found in real-world clinical trial settings. Patients can be discovered for industry-sponsored and investigator-initiated studies, as well as for collaboration with peer research institutions. Data in the TriNetX network is fully de-identified to the user.
“Nationwide Children’s is now a member of a rapidly expanding and first-of-its-kind network of pediatric hospitals, general medicine health systems, cancer centers, biopharma and CROs who are all leveraging TriNetX in ways that foster better collaboration and efficiency in clinical research,” said Gadi Lachman, CEO, TriNetX.
