Austin, Texas, Nov. 9, 2017 — Elligo Health Research, a leading clinical research infrastructure provider that brings together sponsors, physicians, patients and CROs to improve clinical trial access and efficiency, is now connecting physicians and patients to treatment options through a new partnership with PatientLink Enterprises, an innovative medical patient data collection and enrollment software development company.
To benefit its customers who are ready to bring clinical studies to their practice, PatientLink is recommending Elligo’s Goes Direct™ approach. The relationship connects physicians who are interested in research with the resources and infrastructure needed to make it possible.
“Introducing select clients to Elligo has allowed us to further fulfill our mission of connecting people to people — first patients to physicians with our electronic health record (EHR) solutions and now physicians to research with Elligo,” said Debi Willis, CEO and founder of PatientLink. “We are grateful to play a role in engaging physicians and patients in the research that will help uncover ways to live better and longer.”
“We are delighted to be advancing the care PatientLink’s physicians offer to their patients,” said Keith Fern, chief commercial officer at Elligo. “This opportunity will allow us to increase patient access to cutting edge clinical research by putting it in the hands of even more physicians. This is a win for everyone — for patients, for clinicians and for trial sponsors.”
