Patients Gain Exclusive Access to Clinical Research as a Care Option

Austin, Texas, Sept. 17, 2019Elligo Health Research, a healthcare-enabling research organization, is helping Jack Nathan Health patients gain exclusive access to clinical research as a care option at its Canadian Walmart clinics. Jack Nathan Health operates physician-led medical practices that accommodate clinic appointments, lab services, physiotherapy and chiropractic services, and more.

“We take our commitment to exceptional service and care seriously,” said George Barakat, CEO at Jack Nathan Health. “Partnering with Elligo gives us the opportunity to stay informed of the newest advancements, improve our cutting-edge facilities, and continue to meet our patients’ healthcare challenges.”

This partnership expands Elligo’s Research Ready site network to include healthcare experts and their patients from across Canada who otherwise would not have access to treatments through research as care. Jack Nathan Health patients who qualify for a research study will be given the opportunity to receive treatment through Elligo’s Goes Direct® approach, which connects drug development companies to a diverse pool of patients.

“To date, this is our greatest achievement in our mission to connect research to patients,” said John Potthoff, Ph.D., CEO of Elligo. “We are not only better enabling healthcare research; we are leveraging the strength of a large network to accelerate new products to market and improve treatments worldwide.”
