TrialCheck(R) Cancer Clinical Trial Matching Interface to Debut on American Cancer Society Web Site

Updating Trial Locations in Real Time

Real-time updates are a distinguishing feature of TrialCheck that will also benefit users. In 2006, the Coalition introduced a technology enhancement that imports location information upon receipt for Cooperative Group trials. Participating oncology practices and hospitals appear in a trial record in real time as they are federally approved to participate in that study; conversely, locations are removed in real time from the database record when the study is closed or no longer available at that site. With outdated location information a common problem among trial databases, real-time updates are a popular feature among TrialCheck users. While real-time updates currently apply only to Cooperative Group studies, the proprietary informatics platform developed for real-time updates is a possible model for the Coalition to replicate with other types of studies in the future (pharmaceutical and biotech companies, cancer centers offering their studies in multiple locations, and other government-sponsored studies).

Tracking Clinical Trial Trends

An innovative TrialCheck feature, TrialTracker, will capture a vivid picture of patients' clinical trial experiences, determining whether they took steps and ultimately were enrolled into a trial. For the first time, the American Cancer Society can gain an expansive view of cancer clinical trial activity generated from its services and patient support initiatives, tracking the experiences of patients individually and collectively. In addition to activity around the thousands of nationally registered cancer clinical trials open and seeking patients in the United States, the TrialTracker service will provide comprehensive reporting on demographics and insights into patient b
