Cambridge, MA, December 16, 2019 — TriNetX, the global health research network that revolutionizes clinical research and enables discoveries through the generation of real-world evidence (RWE), continues its Asian expansion with the addition of 11 hospitals from Columbia Asia, an international private healthcare company. Each hospital has 100 to 200 beds providing over 40 clinical and surgical specialties covering all areas of patient care.
“Joining the TriNetX network allows us to offer our patients an opportunity to participate in global clinical trials and to provide our principal investigators with a platform to analyze and augment their clinical research,” said Rajan Narasimha Vikram, MD, General Manager, Clinical Research and Pharmacology at Columbia Asia. “We are also looking to meet clinical trial sponsors’ recruitment milestones by focusing primarily on protocol inclusion and exclusion criteria.”
The addition of Columbia Asia to the network helps TriNetX continue to meet the growing need for patient data in Asia. The expansion into India is another example of TriNetX’s growing footprint in the region.
“We joined TriNetX because they are a recognized leader in the field of clinical trial optimization,” said Dr. Vikram. “They are the most widely used platform to connect major pharmaceutical companies, CROs and healthcare organizations.”
