Elligo Health Research has acquired ePatientFinder’s Clinical Trial Exchange technology platform and referring practice network as it aims to continue expanding its own network.

The platform will help Elligo ​simplify patient identification and feasibility through automation using electronic health record (EHR) data within its provider network.

“Combining our services with ePatientFinder’s Clinical Trial Exchange technology platform will enable us to offer a more complete research solution for the referring practice network created by ePatientFinder,”​ John Potthoff, PhD, CEO of Elligo Health Research told us.

Potthoff said the goal is to provide the practice network with the resources to become “Research Ready”​ and begin conducting clinical trials.

Elligo’s “Goes Direct”​ approach provides physicians with the personnel, procedures, technology, and infrastructure to conduct trials in “Research Ready”​ sites.

“Elligo uses EHR and other health care data to identify Research Ready practices and physicians, and their patients to participate in trials,”​ Potthoff added. “The ePatientFinder Clinical Trial Exchange technology will be implemented within Research Ready practices to make this process seamless.”

Potthoff said internal integration is already complete and implementation at the company’s practices has begun. “Since the process is now easier, our next goal is to continue expanding our network of Research Ready sites,”​ he added.
