Gainesville, Va., Jan. 24, 2018 – Gastroenterology Associates, PC, a gastroenterology practice with offices in Gainesville, Manassas and Warrenton, will begin providing clinical research services by partnering with Elligo Health Research, who improves clinical trial access by engaging the 97 percent of physicians currently not offering clinical research to their patients.
By offering clinical trials as an option, the physicians at Gastroenterology Associates are able to introduce the latest advances in research to their patients. As a result, the practice’s patients have access — in the convenience of the physician’s office — to treatments they might not otherwise have.
“To ensure we have better medicines and treatments for future generations, we need to have clinical research now,” said Scott Choi, M.D., of Gastroenterology Associates, PC. “With Elligo providing the framework, our practice can tap into this research to provide more treatment options for our patients. We look forward to being a part of the Elligo network.”
“Our team at Elligo is excited to work with Gastroenterology Associates to advance the care its physicians offer to patients,” said John Potthoff, Ph.D., co-founder and CEO of Elligo Health Research. “By providing the personnel, processes, technology and infrastructure to make the clinical research process easier for practices at no cost, these practices like Gastroenterology Associates can remain focused on what they do best — taking care of patients.”
