An evaluation was conducted by the Joint Clinical Research Facility (JCRF), part of Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University (ABMU) Health Board in collaboration with Swansea University. Automated pre-screening using CLiX ENRICH, installed on one of Swansea University’s innovative National Research Data Appliances, was compared to current best practice in a currently enrolling multi-national, double blind, randomized, controlled clinical trial investigation of a medicinal product.

With recruitment having slowed to a standstill using current manual methods, CLiX ENRICH was used to provide a prioritized list of patients who were highly eligible for recruitment for the study.

By directing the investigators towards relevant patients in the ENRICHed List, enrollment numbers can be significantly increased in a markedly shorter timeline. CLiX ENRICH for Clinical Trials represents a breakthrough in recruitment efficiency where sponsors and research centers can achieve enrollment targets not only in time, but ahead of schedule with much less manual effort compared to current practice.
