Cleveland Clinic app helps connect patients, doctors

MobiHealthNews, April 16, 2013
Cleveland Clinic has built an app to help both physicians and patients find cancer clinical trials. The app, available for free from the iOS AppStore and the Google Play store, allows users to search the Cleveland Clinic's the 130 active clinical trials by disease, phase, hospital location, or doctor. Although the app has been available since the end of January, the Cleveland Clinic has just officially announced it. "When patients come in we're always seeing if they're appropriate for our clinical trials," Dr. Brian Rini, an oncologist at the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Center and the physician lead on the app, told MobiHealthNews. "The app puts it all into one nice tidy package. It also has general information about clinical trials, consent, process. And it lists all the trials open throughout our system."
