Clinical Research Informatics


Clinical Trials System are fragmented, expensive, more difficult than space shuttles to use (read suck). We are working hard to make them gorgeous, super usable and affordable.

We are extremely proud of the ground-breaking work that our team has done in Clinical Research Informatics. In 2008, we launched our flagship product, TrialX, which is now a full-fledged subsidiary and one of the most recognized brands in the clinical trials industry.  TrialX’s online patient recruitment management solution, iConnect is used by top academic medical centers and leading patient advocacy groups to streamline their entire patient recruitment process. Our clinical trial finder, Ask Dory won the best cancer consumer app award from NCI. Every month thousands of patients connect to clinical trials investigator using our tools.

Our expertise in semantic data retrieval and record linkage has also been used to create the largest clinical trial investigator database, the ‘Investigator Databank’ – a collaborative data-sharing platform of the top five pharmaceutical companies.

But we are far from done. We continue to work tirelessly to develop more solutions to connect patients to clinical researchers worldwide.
