Since 1993, Omega Medical Research has maintained a searchable, patient database that allows us to determine during feasibility assessments whether we should take on a study. By performing a simple search on our web based clinical trials management system, we can determine the number of subjects based on diagnosis that could potentially participate in a study. Our database currently houses over 15000 subjects who are interested in participating in research studies.
Additionally, we work with each of our investigators for referrals from the databases of their private practices. Our Patient recruiters work in synergy with our Investigators to ensure studies are enrolled as requested by sponsors.
