Crystal Run Healthcare and Circuit Clinical Establish Partnership to Bring Clinical Trial Opportunities to Patients

BUFFALO, NY and MIDDLETOWN, NY -- August 31, 2021

Circuit Clinical®, an integrated research platform dedicated to bringing clinical research as a care option to everyone, and Crystal Run Healthcare, one of the fastest-growing multi-specialty group practices in the country, announced a partnership that will allow Crystal Run Healthcare’s patient population to participate in clinical research.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with Crystal Run Healthcare to bring clinical research to their extensive patient population," said Dr. Irfan Khan, Founder, and CEO, Circuit Clinical. "This collaborative partnership will not only advance Crystal Run Healthcare’s ability to conduct clinical research, but it will also help their patients find additional care options that will work for them. In addition, this new collaboration is a continuation of Circuit Clinical’s national expansion, which in part has been driven by our strategic collaboration with Labcorp.”

In February 2021, Labcorp, a leading global life sciences company, and Circuit Clinical® announced a collaboration to bring clinical trials directly to patients in their communities with the physicians they trust most to deliver healthcare services. The multifaceted collaboration brings clinical trials to Labcorp customers who serve a broad and diverse patient population that otherwise may not have the chance to participate.

“Labcorp, Crystal Run, and Circuit Clinical are committed to bringing clinical trial access to the New York Hudson Valley area, especially communities currently underrepresented in trials,” said Bill Haas, Senior Vice President of the Northeast division, Labcorp Diagnostics. “This partnership with Crystal Run and Circuit Clinical, combined with Labcorp’s diagnostic and drug development expertise, demonstrates the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to advancing the development of medical treatments for a variety of conditions.”

Circuit Clinical, headquartered in Buffalo, NY, provides turnkey clinical trial programs that enable health practices to conduct clinical research, breaking the traditional model of research being confined to academic medical centers and private site networks. They offer their expert team of clinical, research, and regulatory staff to support the clinical trial journeys of these practices and their patients.

“In the same way that Crystal Run Healthcare has brought evidence-based, academic caliber medicine close to home for our patients in the Hudson Valley, we are now bringing clinical research opportunities into our patients’ backyards. Participation in clinical trials aimed at advancing medical knowledge will no longer require traveling long distances, but rather can be done where the patients already see their doctor,” said Scott Hines, MD, Chief Quality Officer of Crystal Run Healthcare.

Crystal Run Healthcare, headquartered in Middletown, NY, has over 400 providers and 400,000 patients spanning a multitude of medical and surgical specialties, from primary care to oncology. The partnership will allow Crystal Run physicians to offer clinical research at no cost to patients in the local community. In turn, Circuit Clinical will be able to engage these patients by delivering clinical trial options and enhanced participant experience that they might otherwise be unable to access.
