Tartu University Hospital Expanding Clinical Trial Capabilities Internationally with TriNetX

TALLINN, Estonia, June 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Tartu University Hospital, the only university hospital in Estonia and an e-Health pioneer, has joined the TriNetX global health research network, in an effort to grow its clinical trial participation internationally. TriNetX's rapidly growing collaborative network consists of over 70 healthcare organizations representing hundreds of facilities across 12 countries. TriNetX has presented over 1,500 clinical trial opportunities to its healthcare organization members.

"Cooperation with TriNetX will make our immense trial capabilities and expertise more visible and accessible internationally," said Margus Ulst, Chief Medical Officer of Tartu University Hospital. "It will certainly bring Tartu more trials at the cutting edge of medical innovation."

Network members utilize TriNetX's cloud-based, health research platform to analyze patient populations and perform "what-if" analyses in real-time. As members, healthcare organizations receive hardware and software that are configured within the organization's IT infrastructure and often builds on existing data resources such as i2b2 and Observational Medical Outcomes Partnership (OMOP). Researchers then have access to the institution's de-identified patient data through a user-friendly interface and a growing number of visualization and analysis capabilities.

Biopharmaceutical companies and CROs are presented with aggregate views, but each data point in the TriNetX network can be traced to healthcare organizations who have the ability to identify individual patients. This enables clinical researchers to develop virtual patient cohorts that can then be re-identified for potential recruitment into a clinical trial.

"In additional to bringing us more exposure to clinical trials, we hope our partnership with TriNetX helps improve our data quality and harmonize our coding practices to international standards," added Ulst.

Tartu University Hospital, the pioneer of e-Health in Estonia with 80 percent digital medical data communications, runs 30-40 clinical trials per year with the capacity and expertise to do more. The hospital was established in 1804 and covers all medical fields including nursing care, oncology, and organ transplantation. The hospital has a catchment area covering nearly half of the Estonia population and performs 40,000 inpatient treatments a year and receives 400,000 outpatient visits annually.

"We are excited to have Tartu University Hospital become part of our network," said Steve Lethbridge, Vice President, EMEA at TriNetX. "We are confident our growing international footprint and network of the world's largest biopharmaceutical companies will help expand the reach of Tartu's impressive clinical trial expertise."
