May 2021: New Database from National Institute for Health Research

The United Kingdom’s National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Innovation Observatory has launched ScanMedicine, a searchable database of global clinical trials, for use by researchers, clinicians, and the public.

ScanMedicine is free to access, draws data from 11 major clinical trial databases around the world, including US, and features data on medical devices, diagnostics, and digital apps.

The tool collates and presents the latest data in a readily accessible format, enabling users to filter results by trial type, phase, registry and more, as well as to view searches as visualisations and infographics for a ‘quick-look’ version of their results, identifying gaps and trends.
