Learn how to use Community Pharmacists to Access Real-World Patients for Observational Studies
With screening based on accurate prescription data and patient relationships, the McKesson StudyLink program is a patient-first method that combines the best of high-touch and high-tech to efficiently and proactively identify, engage and screen potential study participants right in their neighborhoods – through their pharmacy. We tap into a large pool of targeted, real-world patients, yet refer only those patients who are eligible, informed and interested in participating in a particular study. The results are high-quality referrals and higher screening rates than traditional approaches.

Access our Free Recorded Webinar or visit to learn how you can kick-start your patient engagement efforts with StudyLink.
