Redefine the clinical trial process

Clinical research is an essential element of our health care system. Without it, we cannot ensure the safety and efficacy of new therapies and major advances in health care technology.

However, traditional clinical trial methods involve disparate workstreams and require considerable manual processes. The result is clinical trials that are expensive, time consuming, inflexible, and not fully representative of provider encounters and patient populations.

For life sciences organizations, the Optum® Digital Research Network addresses these complexities by helping to streamline and automate some key clinical trial processes.

The clinical trial market as we know it is about to change.

Optum’s vision is to transform the drug development process to one that is centered and grounded in real world patient behavior and physician practice.

Optum’s “DIGITAL RESEARCH NETWORK” pulls patient EMR data from research sites and delivers the data as a searchable, seamless, interoperable resource, enabling drug companies to design better protocols, find and enroll patients faster, and follow their outcomes throughout the health journey.

Join us in this partnership to bring our shared vision for real-time, real-world  health care research for real patients.
