Supplementary Information
Innovation 'Elevator Pitch':
Reduce the time it takes for clinicians to find clinical trial options for patients and increase trial enrollment rates.
Overview of Innovation:
It requires significant time to evaluate open clinical trials, analyse inclusion/exclusion criteria and determine a patient’s eligibility for trials based on all the relevant information in the medical record.
Watson for Clinical Trial Matching eliminates the need to manually compare enrollment criteria with patient medical data, making it possible to efficiently identify the potential trial options. It generates a ranked list of relevant trials for each patient

This increases patient access to clinical research, improves trial enrollment, and reduces trial delays.

Stage of Development:
Market ready and adopted - Fully proven, commercially deployable, market ready and already adopted in some areas (in a different region or sector)

Hi, I've taken a quick look at the link.  Is this being used in the UK at all currently?  I am trying to understand what is required on a local level and what is pre-populated into the software.  I am also trying to understand if the system is set up so that clinicians are presented with any open clinical trials to which their patients could be matched OR only to those available for recruitment in their particular site or centre.  It would be useful if this additional information could be provided in order to ascertain its relevance for adoption within the UK and West Midlands in particular.  Many thanks!
