Clarify Health, a healthcare and life sciences platform analytics company, has launched its Clarify Trials software designed to improve the recruitment of clinical trial participants from underserved communities.
The cloud software uses more than 400 social determinants of health (SDoH) to help research sites and investigators expand the diversity of patients enrolled in their trials. SDoH’s take in to account things like where people live, work, their education and numerous other factors that impact health, quality-of-life risks and health outcomes.
The COVID-19 pandemic has helped the push to include more diversity in clinical trials and improve health outcomes in rural, urban and suburban communities traditionally left behind. To further the effort, the FDA released guidance in 2020 to enhance diversity in clinical trials.
