Redefine the clinical trial process

Clinical research is an essential element of our health care system. Without it, we cannot ensure the safety and efficacy of new therapies and major advances in health care technology.

However, traditional clinical trial methods involve disparate workstreams and require considerable manual processes. The result is clinical trials that are expensive, time consuming, inflexible, and not fully representative of provider encounters and patient populations.

For life sciences organizations, the Optum® Digital Research Network addresses these complexities by helping to streamline and automate some key clinical trial processes.

Add data-enabled efficiencies to your clinical trials




Prepare your trial for success

Improve accuracy in feasibility analysis and identify qualified patients by leveraging the depth of the Optum electronic health record (EHR) database.


Seamlessly capture data

Capture and analyze data directly from the electronic medical record (EMR), eliminating the delays and potential for errors inherent in manual capture of trial data endpoints.


Gain speed to market

Accelerate clinical trials by utilizing our network of research-ready sites and technology that help to simplify and automate data collection.
