Clinerion, which works to accelerate clinical research and medical access to treatments for patients, is welcoming the Santa Casa da Misericordia hospital of Porto Alegre, Brazil, to the Patient Network Explorer hospital network. This will provide patients of Santa Casa da Misericordia with the opportunity to be matched to international clinical trials being run by pharmaceutical companies and clinical investigators around the world. In addition, users of Patient Network Explorer will be afforded an expanded insight into the patient population in Brazil and be able to make strategic drug development decisions based on real-time, real-world data.
“Together with our partner, iHealth, Clinerion is in the process of a significant push to encompass coverage of the majority of patients in Brazil,” said Clinerion CEO Ian Rentsch. “Santa Casa da Misericordia represents an important addition to Clinerion’s network of partner hospitals in the country, the region, and the world.”
Dr Jorge Hetzel, Medical Director for Teaching and Research, said: “Santa Casa has a long tradition in Clinical Research and the Clinerion / iHealth Patient Network Explore will help us maintain leadership in this area.”
