Reify Health is on an ambitious journey, with you, to bring our vision of a more creative, responsive healthcare system to life. Clinical trials keep getting harder. We need to work smarter. Research sites do the work that powers clinical research. But today, sites are often forced to choose between recruiting the next patient and taking time to record information in a sponsor portal. Sites are bogged down by the tools sponsors use. And sponsors still struggle to get the recruitment information they need from sites. As a first step, we have created a better way for sites and sponsors to enroll trials together. With our digital platform StudyTeam, we help sites do their work more effectively and share information with sponsors more easily. We help sponsors reduce site burden and enroll trials more rapidly.
