As the project has been progressing, the site is now open for investigators to sign up. The related reading section below will give more details on how TrialX will work with the PHRs to find a trial that is suited for you, based on your health records.

You can also do a general search from the widget on the blog as well, but the benefit of using the PHR records is that is will cut to the chase and find those that are a true fit and the software will initiate the formatted letters and correspondence with the investigators, so less work for the other end as well and the investigator will have all your information up front, when you decide to make contact. Investigator submissions for sign up will need to be verified. The website also has alerts for both sides that can be customized for notifications. BD
