AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ePatientFinder®, a leader in electronic health record (EHR)-driven clinical trial recruitment, today announced a partnership with M3 Inc., a global leader in digital solutions in healthcare. M3's digital information services and websites reach more than 2 million doctors globally, including 660,000 American Medical Association (AMA)-verified physicians.
"The ePatientFinder clinical trial recruitment solution aligns perfectly with M3's mission to educate and inform physicians, especially as it relates to giving them the tools they need to help their patients," said Aki Tomaru, CEO of M3.
Historically, it has been extremely challenging for physicians to identify new clinical trial opportunities available for their patients because of a lack of readily available information on trials being conducted by investigators and sponsors. The ePatientFinder's Clinical Trial Exchange™ platform solves that challenge by leveraging sophisticated algorithms from EHR data, a three-tier filtering process, and the power of the trusted physician-patient relationship to match patients with clinical trials for advanced care.
"With numerous EHR partners, our platform already includes access to millions of patient lives and 10s of thousands of providers," said Tom Dorsett, CEO and President of ePatientFinder. "This partnership with M3 greatly expands our network of potential referring physicians, ensuring that they, too, will be aware of life-changing, or even life-saving, clinical trials that they—or their patients—likely would not have known about otherwise."
M3 provides digital health information services that include: the most up-to-date daily, indexed clinical information/news; medical education; market research; ethical drug promotion; clinical development; job recruitment and clinic appointment services. Some of the company's websites include: m3.com, mdlinx.com, research.m3.com, doctors.net.uk, thesmartestdoc.com, networksinhealth.com, medigate.net, medeconnect.net, medlive.cn.
ePatientFinder®, based in Austin, Texas, is the only company that provides physicians and clinical trial sites with a secure technology platform that allows them to compliantly leverage EHR data and make it actionable. By tapping into the trusted physician-patient relationship, ePatientFinder produces the highest quality referrals in the business, which in turn help clinical trials get populated more quickly and cost effectively than ever before. With ePatientFinder, physicians and EHR providers develop additional revenue streams with little change to their current activities, and patient satisfaction increases dramatically with access to the advanced care that is only available through clinical trials.
