We bring clinical research direct to clinical health care.

Today, nearly 97 percent of physicians and their patients are lost to clinical research.

But, Elligo Health Research’s Goes Direct® approach has found them, uniting the best clinical experts with the best research infrastructure to create the ultimate clinical trial solution for enhanced patient access and engagement. We do this by maintaining the integrity of the trusted patient and physician relationship, building communities of research, accessing electronic healthcare records, and leveraging our novel clinical trial technology (Intelligo) to deliver better research data; fulfilling the needs of sponsors, physicians and patients everywhere. In doing so, we expand the base of physicians and their patients who otherwise would not participate to engage in clinical trials.

Finding the 97 percent of lost physicians and patients is unique to Elligo. No other company Goes Direct.

Changing the Paradigm

Engaging the 97%

Our Goes Direct® approach expands the base of physicians and their patients who otherwise would not participate in clinical trials.

Traditionally patients are found by using approaches like targeted social media, and local newspaper, radio and billboards ads near existing clinical research sites. But these tactics only engage about three percent of the population for participation in clinical research.

Finding the 97 percent of lost physicians and patients is unique to Elligo. No other company Goes Direct.

The Goes Direct® Approach

Expanding clinical research opportunities.

Our focus is helping patients live happier, healthier lives through the benefits of clinical research as care. That’s why we developed the Goes Direct® approach, which provides the infrastructure, technology and expertise necessary to expand the base of physicians and their patients who otherwise would not participate in clinical trials.

Match Practices to a Trial or Therapeutic Area Using EHR Data

Elligo uses study criteria like therapeutic specialty, patient pool demographics and office location to search electronic health records and connect practices with upcoming clinical trial opportunities.

Determine Practice Interest and Study Fit

When a practice is a match for a study protocol, we discuss the opportunity with them in more detail. If the practice decides to pursue the study, our study coordinator arranges the pre-study qualification visit with the sponsor.

Designate Practice a Research Ready Study Site

Before beginning a study, Elligo provides the resources — infrastructure, technology and expertise — necessary to conduct the trial and designates the medical practice a Research Ready study site.

patient identification

Identify Patients Using IntElligo Research Stack™ Technology

Using the IntElligo platform, Elligo identifies qualified patients at the study site and encourages the physician to consider presenting the study opportunity. Patients confer with their trusted physician to decide whether to participate in the trial.

Enroll Patients Participating in the Trial

Patients interested in a study are introduced to the Elligo study coordinator and, if qualified, are asked to consent to the trial. Elligo’s study coordinator then becomes a partner in each patient’s care, taking the management burden off the physician by taking care of the details — including scheduling visits, processing paperwork, and handling data collection, regulatory compliance and sponsor communication.

Provide Trial Sponsors & CROs With Real Data From Real Patients

We help trial sponsors and CROs conduct more efficient and cost-effective trials, accelerating new products to market. Our hands-on operating model and access to known patients through their physicians ensures the Goes Direct® approach saves sponsors and CROs time and resources. Not only does it diversify patient pools, it also improves patient recruitment and retention.
