Clinical registries

in all of Europe are our proven area of expertise.

Clinical studies / registries

We design, run, and publish data from clinical registries, either independently or with partners in the healthcare sector. We currently work in collaboration with a large number of European hospitals.

Registries are initiated by interested clinicians or by relevant companies. We start with a project idea, from which we formulate a registry protocol and electronic questionnaire. The results are then jointly published by the participating centres.

These registries are generally financed by an external funding source, while we assume overall responsibility for project implementation (“Sponsorship”). For this, we work with established experts in the relevant fields, ensuring successful planning and implementation.
