Clinerion partners with Eugen to expand Patient Network Explorer coverage to patients and hospitals in Uruguay.




  • Eugen will support the expansion of Clinerion’s Patient Network Explorer to hospitals and clinical trial sites in Uruguay.
  • Eugen will also offer Patient Network Explorer services on behalf of Clinerion to clinical researchers and trial sponsors in Uruguay.


Eugen, a clinical development service provider based in Uruguay, will support Clinerion’s expansion by promoting hospitals in the country to join Patient Network Explorer (PNEx), adding to the platform true global representativeness. They will use PNEx to provide clients with solid real patient health data insights when choosing their clinical trial’s geographic distribution, better trial design tools and effective patient enrollment. Hospitals in Uruguay will increase their visibility and be in a better position to attract global multicentric trials while providing patients with innovative treatments.


Eugen works together with the government in Uruguay and leading local sites to increase the flow of clinical trials to Latin America in general, and Uruguay in particular, by creating an ecosystem that benefits biopharma companies and provides patients with the best clinical development programs. The country recently made headlines with its pioneer medical and recreative cannabis regulation, setting the basis for hundreds of millions of dollars in investments – and is going a step further, having just revamped its clinical research regulation.


“In this context, our partnership with Clinerion couldn’t be timelier as Uruguay has gradually shifted its economic model to transform itself into a center of innovation in Latin America,” says Claudia Rodriguez Verde, Director of Operations of Eugen. “Clinerion’s Patient Network Explorer is already reshaping drug development worldwide and brings to Uruguay and Latin America the new models of clinical trials that use data and artificial intelligence. We are very enthusiastic about this partnership and we are certain it will leverage Uruguay’s efforts to be at the forefront of clinical research, as well as being a meaningful step to provide Eugen’s customers with precise data generated in real-time.”


“This partnership is true to Clinerion’s aim of bringing the most modern treatments to patients around the world,” says Ian Rentsch, CEO of Clinerion. “Joining the Patient Network Explorer platform, sites in Uruguay will become more visible for trial sponsors making site selection decisions. As a result, patients in Uruguay will gain access to leading-edge international trials matching their treatment needs.”
