Clinerion is expanding into Poland, with the Szpital Specjalistyczny w Brzozowie (the Specialist Hospital in Brzozów) set to join Clinerion’s Patient Network Explorer platform.
The Specialist Hospital in Brzozów is the first site in Poland to join Clinerion’s global hospital network. It has 485 beds and electronic hospital records for more than 250,000 patients. Each specialisation has its own primary investigator and research team and the hospital runs roughly 30 trials per year.
Patient data from the hospital has been live in Clinerion’s Patient Network Explorer since December 2018. It is the first site to connect to Patient Network Explorer using an API developed by Asseco, the provider of Szpital Specjalistyczny w Brzozowie’s hospital information system. In the future this API will simplify Patient Network Explorer’s data integration with hospitals using Asseco systems. The data integration with Szpital Specjalistyczny w Brzozowie also uses machine learning technologies developed by Clinerion to extract and structure laboratory values available from free text.
Tomasz Kondraciuk, Director of the Specialist Hospital in Brzozów, highlighted the importance of Patient Network Explorer: “Patient Network Explorer helps us get more clinical trials, as well as making patient recruitment more effective and efficient. Daily automated notifications about new potential candidates in the Patient Network Explorer’s ‘Patient Finder’ tool help to enrol more patients in our clinical trials.”
Ian Rentsch, CEO of Clinerion commented on Clinerion’s expansion into Poland: “Szpital Specjalistyczny w Brzozowie is a world-class hospital and clinical trials facility. We are pleased to support them in gaining international exposure and participation in the most cutting-edge international research.”
