Using Medical Records to Pre-Qualify for Clinical Trials with Komathi Stem

The traditional model involves sponsors and CROs contracting with trial sites and hoping the sites will find and enroll eligible patients.

Through her work at monARC Bio, Komathi Stem is flipping the traditional model upside down.

In this interview, Komathi shares how patients can now share medical records for clinical research purposes.

Pharmaceutical and medical device companies can then leverage this data to easily identify potential clinical research patients.

With the rapid growth of software technology and high pressure to keep medical costs down, there is a growing need and application of real-world data in clinical research.

For this reason, we are likely to see a rapid use of technology and the use of real-world data in clinical research and trial management.

In this interview, we’ll cover the following topics:

  • Why does monARC exists and what it does?
