Launched in 2012, Study Scavenger is the leading smartphone application for medical subject recruitment. It is the first of its kind in the world of mobile applications and usability is not limited to the United States but caters to a worldwide market. The app also supports research institutes nationwide through the promotion of their latest studies and trials, which makes for faster advancements in the field of health sciences research. The company partnered with key players in the industry such as JALR.org and Verified Clinical Trials, and this partnership enables Study Scavenger to expand its reach in order to meet both individual and organizational needs through a handy channel, the smartphone.
This globally available bilingual (English and Spanish; currently it is being formatted to include other languages) smartphone app is a database of the most comprehensive listings for clinical trials thanks to the support from CenterWatch, an organization that provides business information for active listings in clinical trial studies.
The range of services provided by Study Scavenger was especially and carefully designed with the individual user in mind. A simple and easy-to-navigate GUI was designed for a more efficient on-the-go way of searching for potential clinical trials. Simple but key information about each study is provided for a quick scan. This free service also presents notification settings and services for its users so they will be updated through alerts or email notifications about the latest clinical trials within their field of interest or concern without having to actively search for it. Furthermore, the app links to the research sites themselves in case the user wants to get in touch with the clinical trial administrator for more information about the study and to sign up for it. For those who would like to trim down the search results based on certain parameters, the Study Scavenger app allows users to set the stipend range and mileage limitations depending on their financial needs and travel concerns. The company also has a standby call center whose agents have undergone medical training to further discuss other details with potential research patients. Above all, the company puts a primer on privacy and none of the users details are disclosed to anyone, ensuring your safety and security while using it.
On the part of research institutes, they will be happy to note that the company offers competitive pricings for postings and will only send billings for patients that pre-qualify for the clinical trial.
