Revolutionizing Clinical Trials with a Modern, Connected Enrollment Experience

HIMSS Media

Improving population health and delivering personalized medicine all starts with research. But recruiting patients is an age-old problem: only 3 percent of cancer patients enroll in clinical trials, and more than half of clinical trials fail due to under-enrollment. The Athena Breast Health Network, a University of California-wide collaboration based at UCSF, strives to change that paradigm. Pursuing a prospective trial with the ambitious goal of enrolling 100,000 women, the WISDOM Study has the potential to change the way breast cancer is diagnosed and treated by comparing annual breast cancer screening with personalized risk-based screening.
