Raising Awareness

Concise simple tool to funnel population specific open trials/ studies for physicians

Electronic updates and disease population specific information with simple tool for informing individual patient about potentially appropriate open studies and trials. If this tool could be integrated into healthcare systems electronic records tied to diagnostic codes, a family practice, internal medicine and or neurologist would be reminded at time of visit and simply print of a one page description of potentially beneficial research opportunities with question re whether patient would like to contact trial coordinator or whether they would like someone to touch base with them. If they permit the physician to request that someone from study contact them, an electronic referral could be initiated for informational contact and potential screening. Alternatively, diagnostic code could cause a pop up to appear with open trials and contact info. Checking a box in online record would add an attachment to the patient information given to patients upon visit checkout.
