Dr. Matt Wilson is the Founder and CEO of uMEd, bringing together healthcare providers and researchers to reach out to patients to participate in clinical trials.  Using health data, uMed facilitates targeting good candidates for trials and helps the care provider educate patients about the value of participating in one or multiple clinical trials. In a very repeatable and scalable environment, uMed can match patients to specific study opportunities based on standardized queries.

Matt explains, "A lot of other organizations in the clinical study space that are looking at using health record data are using it in a very different way because they're generally focused on bringing together existing EMR data or claims data from lots of different healthcare providers and using that in of itself to identify trends and value for researchers. Whereas uMed is taking a different approach, saying, "Well, actually, their health record data is incredibly useful as a starting point to be able to identify potential study participants."

"We essentially have a common data infrastructure that sits across our network of healthcare providers, that's bound to the U.K. and now the U.S. as well, which will shortly be coming online. What we do in that network is each of these providers essentially say, "Yes, we want to be part of the uMed network." That allows us to be able to bring the data from those health records and normalize them across all of the different providers we're working with."
