The uMed Recruit platform links health record data with direct-to-patient SMS outreach to accelerate patient recruitment for phase II, III & IV clinical trials.
Meet your recruitment target on time, every time
We increase monthly patients randomised by an average of 3x, empowering you to better meet your recruitment timeframe.
We automatically pre-screen patients with EHR information and digital questionnaires so that ~80% of patients referred to sites by uMed go on to be randomised.
We can identify and tailor our outreach towards ethnic minorities, achieving up to 5x more representation of minoritised groups.
We identify patients via primary care that are interested in clinical research but overlooked by traditional recruitment methods.
Why we’re different
Integration with top 2 GP EHR software platforms
The only platform to integrate with a network of over 350 primary care practices which facilitates easy GP approval to reach out to patients.
Automatic patient outreach on behalf of recognised GP
The only platform to automatically reach out to approved patients via an SMS on behalf of their recognised GP.
EHR & hospitalisation data linkage
uMed can augment GP EHR data with secondary care HES data into a complete study data set, which would otherwise require manual collection.

How we make a difference
85% of trials are delayed due to slow recruitment. Having to move the goalposts of a study is common and expensive for the sponsor.
uMed increases monthly randomised patients by an average of 3 times.
CROs and major clinical sites struggle with access to patients and often recycle the same patient populations for each trial.
Recruiting via primary care, uMed is easily able to identify research naïve patients.
Screening failures due to precise inclusion/exclusion criteria waste resources and increases burden on site staff.
uMed pre-screens patients with EHR and digital questionnaires referring only the most relevant patients to sites.
Critical under representation of ethnic minorities in clinical trials means that research often fails to accurately represent the true population.
uMed can identify and tailor outreach towards ethnic minorities achieving up to 5x more representation.
275% increase in monthly enrolment. Increased representation of ethnic minorities from 3% to 18%.Read more

How we work
- We find the right patients from the start. Using health record data we are able to filter by specific inclusion and exclusion criteria, generating only the most relevant patient cohorts, therefore reducing screening failures at the site.
- Additional screening. Once engaged we can provide further digital questionnaire screening to make sure patients are suitable for your study.
- Automatically engage potential trial participants. Once a potential trial participant is approved by our provider partner, we automatically reach out to the patient via SMS to invite them to participate. The patient can find all the information on the study and consent electronically to be contacted by the trial site.
- Workload for the provider practice is minimal, so the full process, from initial patient identification to engagement, is extremely quick and efficient.
