  • Data Protection

    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.

  • Opt Out

    Patients can opt out of contact, sharing data or study participation at any time. We will not contact patients who have registered for the national data opt out.

  • 24hr checks

    Our system runs 24 hr checks on the EHR data to ensure no patients are engaged who are unsuitable (due to mortality, admitted to care homes).

  • Support Line

    uMed provides a nurse support line to support patients throughout the process and reduce the pressure of incoming calls for practice staff related to the study.
