Science 37®’s Community Provider Network Grows Sixfold, Reaching Nearly 28 Million Patients
Since January 2021, Science 37’s community provider network has added nearly 35,000 physician providers to enable agile clinical trial execution.
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., February 17, 2022 — Science 37 Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNCE), the Agile Clinical Trial Operating System™ bolstered its centralized network of community providers by six times during the past year, contracting with more than 800 healthcare organizations and gaining access to nearly 28 million patients worldwide.
Currently, less than three percent of physicians participate as clinical trial investigators, primarily due to infrastructure burdens that often serve as a deterrent – preventing more than 97 percent of providers from contributing to research1. By expanding its network of community providers, Science 37 enables physicians-providers to present clinical research as a care option to their patients, without having to add expensive clinical research infrastructure.
“Continuing to expand our network of community providers delivers against our mission: to accelerate research by enabling universal access to patients and providers, anywhere,” said Darcy Forman, Chief Delivery Officer of Science 37. “Our community provider network helps speed patient enrollment, which has been proven to enroll up to 15 times faster than the traditional model. It also dramatically extends our investigator capacity and enables us to take on more complex study designs across most therapeutic areas.”
Science 37-Certified™ community providers have the opportunity to present their patients with studies that are managed by Science 37 telemedicine investigators, or they may choose to become an investigator with Science 37 and utilize the Science 37’s Agile Clinical Trial Operating System. Community providers may also become a preferred destination for patients to receive procedures that may be required to be performed in a clinical setting.
“The Science 37 Operating System, including its centralized networks, standardized processes, and unifying technology platform, enables the entire trial to be conducted by a common set of people, processes, and technology,” Ms. Forman continued. “We believe this enables Science 37 to not only accelerate enrollment but also to create greater compliance to the protocol and the highest-quality data.”
