We’ve pioneered the automation of the most time-consuming aspects of research – patient identification, approval and engagement – enabling healthcare professionals to participate in more studies with minimal incremental workload.
We empower patients to participate in studies that have the greatest relevance and impact for their specific condition. Our goal is to support GPs to proactively send their patients only the most relevant research opportunities.
We help answer your key research questions by identifying specific patient populations, directly engaging and consenting them into a study, and managing the collection of prospective data via EMR, PRO and medical device.
“Our mission is to help patients and healthcare professionals participate in more clinical research, so that we can accelerate the discovery of ground breaking new treatments.”
Dr. Matt Wilson
As a former A&E doctor, anaesthetist, and Royal Marines Medical Officer, uMed Founder Dr. Matt Wilson understands the pressures of working on the front-line in the healthcare system, and how involvement in research often falls to the sidelines because of inadequate time and resource. This lack of participation from healthcare providers is a huge barrier for researchers trying to meet their patient enrolment timelines.
Combining his experience within healthcare with a passion for research, Dr. Wilson developed the uMed platform to help healthcare professionals run patient research more efficiently and at scale, whilst also addressing the common challenges associated with trial recruitment such as high screen failure and dropout rate, speed of recruitment and achieving patient diversity.
uMed is now working with top pharmaceutical companies and academic researchers from across the globe, and is linking EHR records of over 10 million patients via a rapidly expanding network of healthcare providers from across the UK, USA and Australia.
