ClinTrial Refer Melanoma App
22 January 2015
Melanoma Institute Australia has launched a new smartphone app called ClinTrial Refer Melanoma to help busy clinicians find clinical trials for their melanoma patients.
Everyone wants to find the best possible option for patients but doing detailed research for each patient is just not practical. ClinTrial Refer Melanoma helps solve this problem by keeping a quick, easy-to-use filtering app right in your pocket. You just choose your patient’s disease stage and mutation status and tap Search to see the trials that could be a possible match for your patient. The app includes up-to-date detailed information on each trial. You can refine the search further by location, trial status and sponsor, or just tap the email icon to fire off the information to a referring doctor or the patient themselves.
The app can be downloaded for free from the AppStore and Google Play. It promises to be a useful tool for clinicians by ensuring they have easy access with all potential trial treatment options for their patient. It's also hoped that the app will increase participation in clinical trials by raising the profile of existing and new studies.
