Cambridge, MA, April 23, 2020 — TriNetX, the global health research network, launched a COVID-19 Rapid Response Network to enable the pharmaceutical community to design clinical trials with real-world data, and to quickly engagehealthcare organizations (HCOs) that have eligible patients and confirmed interest in receiving COVID-19 clinical trial and medical chart review opportunities. The research network consists of longitudinal clinical data from over 20,000 patients diagnosed with COVID-19 in the United States and Europe. Since launching, seven clinical trials involving treatments and vaccines have been presented to HCOs within the network.

Synteract, a global CRO that supports biotech and pharmaceutical companies, successfully utilized the COVID-19 Rapid Response Network to identify study sites in Europe for a critical COVID-19 investigational medicinal product and was able to engage all of the study sites required for the trial within one week.

“The ability to quickly model an eligible patient cohort with real-world data and then be directed to the healthcare organizations where these COVID-19 patients are being treated enables us to quickly initiate life-saving clinical trials,” said Mary Mattes, Sr. Vice President, Global Operations at Synteract.

Trial Connect, a key feature of the TriNetX platform, enables the pharmaceutical community to efficiently and directly engage clinical trial offices at HCOs with potential trial opportunities for COVID-19 patients. HCOs respond faster through Trial Connect than the traditional industry approach of back-and-forth site feasibility communications that take upwards of six weeks to complete.

“As the pandemic spreads, time is of the essence as we try to contain it,” said Jennifer Stacey, Vice President, Clinical Sciences at TriNetX. “Being able to provide access to up-to-date COVID-19 clinical data to researchers quickly is crucial since the world is depending on clinical trials to find ways to treat this disease. Our Rapid Response Network enables the pharmaceutical community to connect with healthcare organizations in minutes and hours rather than in weeks and months it would otherwise take through traditional processes.”
