CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- TriNetX, a leader in international clinical research networks, announced today an agreement with hict, an independent healthcare consulting firm headquartered in Belgium, to expand the TriNetX network in Europe and the Middle East.
The agreement authorizes hict to offer TriNetX membership to healthcare providers in addition to hict's existing portfolio of clinical operations, strategic guidance, IT and process improvement services.
TriNetX is a proprietary network of healthcare providers, pharmaceutical companies and contract research organizations (CROs) representing over 37 million patients in the US and Europe to support clinical study and protocol design, site selection, patient recruitment and collaborative research across a range of therapeutic areas and development stages.
Users of the TriNetX system can analyze patient populations with search criteria across multiple longitudinal data points, and TriNetX's advanced analytics modules provide intelligence on which criteria have the most impact as well as the rate at which new patients present. Each data point in the TriNetX system can be traced to healthcare providers who have the ability to identify individual patients, allowing clinical researchers to develop virtual patient cohorts that can be recapitulated in real world clinical trial settings. Data in the TriNetX system is fully de-identified to the user.
"hict enables healthcare providers to become centers of excellence in clinical research," said Jan Demey, CEO, hict. "We represent an international multidisciplinary team of consultants and experts on a mission to make realistic improvements for the healthcare industry. We are pleased to expand our portfolio to include TriNetX, an innovative solution that is experiencing viral growth for its unique capabilities that address unmet needs in clinical trial design and research. hict's additional strategic and operational consulting services enable a bridge between healthcare providers and the pharmaceutical industry in favor of patients' quality of medical service."

"This will be an important step towards increased performance in new drug development in Europe and the Middle East."
