AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Urology Austin, a urology practice with 13 offices in the Austin, Texas, area, has partnered with Elligo Health Research, which improves clinical trial access by engaging the 97 percent of physicians currently not offering clinical research to their patients, to offer clinical research as a care option to its patients. The partnership will allow Urology Austin to conduct clinical trials at its Round Rock office and thus provide alternative treatment options to patients who have exhausted conventional methods of care.
“We are dedicated to setting new standards in compassionate patient care,” said Dr. Carl Bischoff, urologist at Urology Austin. “And Elligo is helping us further that mission by providing the infrastructure to bring innovative clinical trial treatments to our patients at no cost to us.”
Elligo’s Goes Direct™ approach makes conducting research studies easy for its physician partners. Not only does Elligo provide the necessary personnel, processes and technology to support a study, but it facilitates patient communication and takes care of many of the details, so physicians have time to focus on patient care.
“We are thrilled to welcome Urology Austin as one of our physician sites,” said John Potthoff, Ph.D., CEO of Elligo Health Research. “They are helping their patients access novel treatments closer to home and under the care of their trusted physician, and contributing to the future of urology care as well.”
