UAB Selects XpertDox Clinical Trial Recruitment Platform To Accelerate Medical Research

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., July 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- XpertDox, a data analytics firm focused on improving healthcare outcomes for patients with serious and rare diseases, today announced that the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), one of the largest academic medical centers in the United States, has selected the Company's XpertTrialTM Platform to improve clinical trial enrollment timelines and accelerate patient recruitment for medical research (Link). The goal of this collaboration is to promote access to promising clinical studies while improving outcomes for patients and clinicians.

"We are proud to partner with UAB to improve patient enrollment across the University's vibrant network of clinical trials," said Sameer Ather, M.D., Ph.D., CEO and co-founder of XpertDox.  "UAB is a recognized leader in medical research and an ideal partner for XpertDox and the XpertTrial Platform. The XpertTrial Platform is unique in its utilization of big data to address the challenges of clinical trial matching, integrating the most advanced technology into the highest quality options available for patients."

XpertTrial is a natural language processing search engine that matches 50,000 keywords to a list of active clinical trials across all diseases, procedures, symptoms, and specialties.  The functionality and computing power used by XpertTrial represents significant improvement over previous clinical enrollment products.

Dr. Ather continued, "Patients, particularly those with serious and rare diseases, want to learn about treatment options including the latest clinical studies but, historically, information has been decentralized and scarce. The XpertTrial Platform has been designed specifically to accelerate access to information, providing patients with the detailed information necessary to make informed decisions.  This collaboration will allow patients to search for information about the hundreds of ongoing trials at UAB, identifying opportunities and improving access to the latest research. We believe that XpertTrial has the potential to change the paradigm of clinical trial enrollment at UAB and across the United States."
