Morristown, Tenn.; June 3, 2020Elligo Health Research, a healthcare-enabling research organization, has partnered with HealthStar Physicians, a multi-specialty physicians group, to bring clinical research to patients across 14 locations in Eastern Tennessee.

“We are extremely excited to partner with Elligo to provide the benefits of clinical research to our patients,” said Derek Cooze, M.D. “Through our collaboration, we aim to ease the burden of travel and provide our patients with the opportunity to participate in clinical trials within their community.” The research group at HealthStar combines decades of experience from multiple leaders in clinical research.

Through this partnership, Elligo will provide the expertise and tools needed to facilitate research across HealthStar’s network of more than 100 care providers in therapeutic areas including family medicine, neurology, psychology, OB/GYN, and sleep medicine, among others. Only Elligo’s proprietary state-of-the-art technology platform, IntElligo Research Stack, provides physicians with the infrastructure needed to integrate research into current workflows. The efficiencies gained from Elligo’s technology, including the recording of required study source data at the point of care to enabling remote monitoring visits, will allow the focus to remain on patient care throughout the trial.

“Our goal has always been to provide physicians with opportunities to participate in clinical trials,” said Chad Moore, president of Elligo. “We proudly welcome HealthStar to our growing network of physicians bringing research as a care option to their patients and communities.”
