India-based Jehangir Hospital and its research arm Jehangir Clinical Development Centre (JCDC) have joined Clinerion’s Patient Network Explorer platform in a move that it hopes will help it to leverage its patient population and enhance patient recruitment.
Jehangir Hospital has more than 350 beds and services patients in Pune and beyond. It specialises in a number of different areas, including cardiology, oncology, endocrinology, paediatrics, rheumatology, dermatology and infectious diseases. JCDC has more than 60 principal investigators and conducts an average of 25-30 clinical studies at any point in time.
Pathik Divate, CEO of the JCDC, commented on the partnership: “We at JCDC are delighted about partnering with Clinerion as there is an ideal alignment of Clinerion’s innovative technology and our clinical research expertise. We are excited about harnessing the power of this technology to leverage our diverse patient population and bring in further efficiency in patient recruitment.”
Clinerion’s CEO Ian Rentsch also gave his thoughts: “The population of India is significantly under-represented when it comes to participation in clinical research. Patient Network Explorer can cut a path through the forest, leading sponsors to the institutions and clinicians who can support clinical trials at an international level of expertise and facilities. This collaboration with Jehangir is just the first step in enabling a global population of eligible patients which reflects the diversity of the world, itself.”
