Study Scavenger and CenterWatch Partner to Improve Patient Recruitment, Enrollment and Mobile Access to Clinical Trials with New Study Scavenger Smartphone Ap
Study Scavenger and CenterWatch are partnering to provide sponsors, contract research organizations (CROs), research centers and patients a mobile solution to their clinical trial needs.
Dix Hills (I-Newswire) August 14, 2013 - Study Scavenger, the first bilingual smartphone app to allow subjects to search for clinical research studies that meet their health, travel and financial needs, and CenterWatch, a leading provider of clinical research business information and online publisher of active clinical trial listings for patients and the public, are partnering to provide sponsors, contract research organizations (CROs), research centers and patients a mobile solution to their clinical trial needs.
Over the past five years, worldwide mobile app use has grown at a rate of 251%, outpacing the growth of stationary internet use by an astounding factor of 15. Potential research volunteers are a component of this massive growth. The Study Scavenger app and Smartphone mobile devices create a win-win partnership that goes beyond the software-PC alliance. No other mass market device is carried around all day, every day and is capable of providing location information at all times. With Study Scavenger's technology, the potential volunteer can search for research studies by location or perform an advanced search, which allows patients to enter their age, zip code, health conditions, distance willing to travel and requested stipend to locate clinical studies meeting their personal, health, and financial needs.
For pharmaceutical companies, the partnership between Study Scavenger and CenterWatch will help optimize the millions of dollars spent on patient recruitment advertising while providing motivated patients the ability to find studies that meet their personal needs.
"We are delighted to have CenterWatch as our partner. Their dedication to high-quality service and study posting is exactly what the research industry needs in a mobile environment. We are thrilled to bring the combined product to the research industry," said Kerri Weingard, ANP, founder and CEO.
CenterWatch launched the Clinical Trials Listing Service™ (CTLS) in 1994 with the sole mission to provide patients and healthcare providers a central location for finding clinical trials. Today, this service is considered the largest online database of industry-funded global clinical trials. "The service reaches a highly targeted and interested patient community via a wide range of distribution channels - patient eAlerts, social media, collaborative relationships with health associations and much more," said Joan Chambers, COO of CenterWatch. "We're very excited about this partnership, as the app serves as a new distribution channel for patients and healthcare providers to learn about and potentially participate in clinical trials. The app, combined with our wide range of channels, reaches a broader audience ultimately serving the overall clinical trials enterprise."
