Increasing Patient Access

A mobile solution to reach patients in their communities

With the Hawthorne Hero network and mobile tools, studies can expand their geographic catchment areas and enroll patients from anywhere – even those with limited mobility. That means better geographic, demographic, and sociographic representation.

Enabling Investigators

Trial architecture that decreases site and patient burden

The Hawthorne Cloud platform standardizes operations and ensures consistent data quality and capture to empower new community providers to participate in research while offsetting infrastructure churn. Our technology also enables greater stakeholder oversight to drive efficiencies and reduce costs.

Improving Data Quality

A solution that strengthens data submissions

Hawthorne Effect’s model addresses compliance to GCP and other regulatory standards while still ensuring in-window assessments and improved patient retention. Complete, timely, and high-conformity data, combined with improved diversity and representation, produces accelerated submission-ready data and faster regulatory approvals.
