Basel, Switzerland, August 30th, 2021 –
Grupo NotreDame Intermédica (GNDI) is the largest healthcare operator in Brazil, with 6.4 million members. Founded in 1968, it is a pioneer in preventive medicine. GNDI has a wide offer, comprising 29 hospitals, 88 clinical centers, 23 autonomous emergency rooms, 15 preventive medicine centers and 2 health centers exclusively dedicated to the over-fifties.

Also part of GNDI is NotreLabs, a national laboratory network with the capability to perform more than 100 operations, distributed across the southern and south-eastern regions of Brazil. NotreLabs also has the capacity to process 4.5 million clinical analyses and 500 thousand imaging exams per month. There are 12 units for imaging exams and 72 collection points for clinical analyses.

Joining Patient Network Explorer, GNDI patients and their treating physicians gain increased treatment options and quicker access to new medical interventions. Patients are matched to academic and sponsored clinical studies according to their electronic health records, ensuring better screening when recruiting for clinical trials. Trial managers gain the ability to include eligible patients for trials more quickly and efficiently than before. Physicians gain tools to better stratify patient care, including the identification of hard-to-diagnose rare disease patients.

“The GNDI Research Institute was created to better serve beneficiaries and reconcile the research objective with advances in clinical treatments within the Group's own service network. Clinerion's tool, Patient Network Explorer, will help us to filter, among all the group’s electronic medical records, patients with the criteria to participate in each type of survey. It is an advance in the screening process that will result in more consistent evaluations for trial recruitment,” says Carina Carraro Pessoa Messias, Coordinator of the Research Institute of Grupo NotreDame Intermédica.

“iHealth, as a partner of Clinerion in Brazil, is determined to connect more and more clinical research reference centers in Brazil, and we are very excited to be partnering with Grupo NotreDame Intermédica. This pandemic has reinforced the importance of clinical research, and as Brazil is 25th in the world for clinical research, we have the potential for much more!” says Leonardo Nunes Alegre, COO of iHealth. “Grupo NotreDame Intermédica is our 21st hospital group partner in Brazil, bringing our Brazil coverage north of 10 million patients,” says Barış Erdoğan, CEO of Clinerion.

“We can truly say that we have the largest coverage on Brazil for EHR-based search. Once again, we thank iHealth Group for their continued support for the Clinerion Community of hospitals in Brazil.”
