Cambridge, MA, July 26, 2021 — The Marshfield Clinic Research Institute, a division of Marshfield Clinic Inc. and the largest private medical research institute in Wisconsin, has joined the TriNetX network to increase clinical trial opportunities for its largely rural patient population.

“Marshfield Clinic Research Institute is a leader in clinical trials and research,” said Dr. Narayana S. Murali, Executive Director of Marshfield Clinic, Inc. “Being part of the TriNetX network increases our opportunities to participate in high-impact studies and bring the best care to our patients. We anticipate increased opportunities for our geographically dispersed patient population to participate in clinical trials that can make a difference in their health.”

The Marshfield Clinic Health System (MCHS) is one of the largest health systems providing care to a rural population in the U.S. and one of only a few large independent nonprofit medical clinics in the country. Marshfield is an integrated health system serving Wisconsin with more than 10,000 employees including more than 1,200 providers across 90 specialties, a health plan, and research and education programs.

The Marshfield Clinic Research Institute supports and oversees clinical trials of drugs, devices, and biotechnology conducted at the Marshfield campus and at Marshfield Clinic’s regional centers. The center is staffed with research nurses, study coordinators, and technical support staff which are organized into two programs (multispecialty and oncology). The teams at the Institute are nationally certified by the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP), the Society of Clinical Research Associates (SoCRA), and/or Oncology Certified Nurse (OCN).

“Marshfield selected TriNetX as a platform to increase our collaboration with pharmaceutical companies,” said Dr. Robert Haws, Director of the Clinical Research Center at the Research Institute. “In particular, we will leverage TriNetX’s Trial Connect capabilities to more effectively engage with industry sponsors and ultimately bring new therapies to our patients through clinical trials.”

TriNetX is the largest and fastest growing collaborative research network, representing healthcare organizations and health data partners across the world. TriNetX has presented thousands of clinical trial opportunities to the healthcare organizations on its network and has been cited in hundreds of scientific and peer-reviewed publications.

“The Marshfield Clinic Research Institute has a long tradition of providing high quality healthcare in the many communities it serves,” said Steve Lethbridge, Senior Vice President, Global Healthcare Partnerships at TriNetX. “We are pleased to welcome Marshfield into the network, and we are eager to help them pursue clinical trial opportunities for the patients in their care.”
