SAN FRANCISCO, April 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Practice Fusion, the #1 cloud-based electronic health record (EHR), announced today a partnership with ePatientFinder, a leader in EHR clinical trial recruitment. This partnership will enable physicians using Practice Fusion's EHR to learn about the newest clinical trials and which of their patients may be eligible to participate. With over 50 million patient encounters a year, Practice Fusion's partnership with ePatientFinder will help launch one of the nation's largest EHR-driven clinical trial recruitment integrations that can help providers quickly and effectively identify clinical trial opportunities for their patients.
Key Points about ePatientFinder Integration:
- Enables providers to learn more about emerging treatment options that may be available for their patients.
- Quickly allows providers to identify patients who may be eligible for a clinical trial.
- With over 50 million patient encounters a year on the Practice Fusion platform, this partnership will help launch one of the nation's largest EHR-driven clinical trial recruitment integrations.
- Expands clinical trial participation options to millions of patients nationwide who otherwise may not have had access to clinical trials.
Historically, it has been extremely challenging for physicians to follow new clinical trial opportunities available for their patients because of a lack of readily available information on clinical trials being conducted by investigators and sponsors. By integrating with the Practice Fusion platform, ePatientFinder can enable practitioners to quickly learn about and connect their eligible patients to clinical trial opportunities.
"With over 56 million patient encounters in 2014 alone, Practice Fusion is the only EHR platform positioned to benefit millions of patients so quickly by making available clinical trial opportunities," said Ryan Howard, founder and CEO of Practice Fusion. "Partnering with ePatientFinder directly serves our mission of empowering providers and patients."
"Together we will be able create an unprecedented awareness of clinical trial opportunities for both physicians and patients," said Tom Dorsett, CEO of ePatientFinder. "Until now, patients could only hope that they might hear or see an advertisement to make them aware of clinical trial options. Now they will learn through their trusted physician."
