2 collaborations – CVS Health with Medable, and Thermo Fisher Scientific with Medidata Acorn AI – seek to improve clinical trials

CVS MinuteClinic providers will use Medable’s software platform to improve patient access, engagement and retention during clinical trials. Meanwhile, Thermo Fisher Scientific and Medidata Acorn AI announced a collaboration to develop an application that combines patient recruitment and site performance data for clinical trials.CVS Health, the retail pharmacy which is seeking to overhaul its healthcare strategy, and Palo Alto, California-based software company Medable announced Monday that they’re partnering to expand access to clinical trials through CVS MinuteClinic locations nationwide.

However, other minorities including Asian, Hispanic and Latino groups still consistently underrepresented, according to the clinical data science company Phesi. Patient retention in trials is also a challenge. The vast majority of patients who start a trial don’t complete it. “One of the key reasons is inconvenient location – often the time and economics with taking long trips and time off from work to go to sites that are inconveniently located make trials impossible for some folks, especially in some underrepresented communities,” said Sanskriti Thakur, chief growth officer at Medable, in an email. “This partnership materially changes the way research touches people in the…
