Circuit Clinical Partners with NextGen Healthcare, Accelerating Diversity in Clinical Trials for 15M+ Patients

BUFFALO, NY – Today launches a landmark acceleration point as Circuit Clinical partners with NextGen Healthcare Inc., an industry leader in cloud-based healthcare technology solutions – bringing clinical research as a care option to over 15M patients of Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) that utilize NextGen Healthcare solutions. Circuit’s commitment to improving patient diversity and access through trial recruitment, referral, and enrollment services, together with NextGen’s data insights and national impact, will bring research opportunities into underserved communities and help improve the participation of patients of color, starting in the places they already know and trust – their doctor’s office.

“Our partnership with NextGen Healthcare will create a comprehensive solution that helps solve historical inequities in clinical research,” says Irfan Khan, MD, Circuit Clinical’s founder & CEO. “The lack of representation in research is a fundamental problem and is ripe for new, meaningful solutions – this partnership with NextGen combines their comprehensive data and national reach with Circuit’s patient-centric recruitment, referral, and enrollment services to offer pharmaceutical, biotech, and vaccine companies a groundbreaking opportunity for accelerating therapeutic development and improving diversity in clinical trials. It’s a transformative step forward.”

NextGen Healthcare-powered practices, in concert with Circuit Clinical’s full-stack approach to transform the patient journey – including an award-winning patient experience platform TrialJourney – will help eliminate traditional care obstacles that have created inequities in the ways both patients and provider access clinical research. Furthermore, extending patient participation will prove to produce tangible benefits for individuals and communities, including how clinical research provides extra care visits without co-pays, therapeutic improvement on a better regimen, and participant stipends and compensation.

“This partnership underscores NextGen Healthcare’s commitment to FQHCs and highlights our commitment to serving diverse patient populations,” said Srinivas (Sri) Velamoor, chief growth and strategy officer at NextGen Healthcare. “NextGen Healthcare’s technology is empowering providers to build healthier communities. Our work with Circuit Clinical is a milestone that provides real impact for our clients and their patients, and delivers on our pledge to facilitate better healthcare outcomes for all.”
