Clinical Connectivity

A clinical research network is a gathering of like-minded research centres, usually academic institutions or teaching hospitals, coming together to pool expertise, best practices, tools and equipment, and resources and manpower, with the goal of furthering their research capabilities in ways that no single institution could achieve alone. In the main, these are self-assembled and self-organised regional clusters of hospitals.

Banding together, clinical research networks benefit from sharing best-in-class clinical expertise, facilities, and equipment. Not every hospital’s research department is funded well enough to be able to afford a SPINlab Hyperpolariser, or an in-bore MRI targeted ultrasound device, which can run into the millions of pounds. Similarly, other tools, such as software solutions, need only be purchased once to benefit the entire network. Depending on the set-up of the network consortium, the setup and management processes of a clinical trial may also be simplified, such as only one ethics committee approval being needed for the entire trial, across multiple sites.

More importantly, having access to patients from every member institution, the network gains a larger pool of potential patients for its research. A heterogenous grouping of research facilities also allows the research network to have expert personnel in a variety of fields and facilities suiting many treatment methodologies.
