The Trial Site Network

The Trial Site Network is a growing network of contacts at over 85 academic hospitals, community hospitals, and researcher networks across Ontario, who are ready to receive new industry-sponsored trials and pilot studies that align with their core areas of interest. This new network provides a one-stop-shop for companies looking to conduct clinical trials, observational studies or technology pilots in Ontario’s Healthcare system. At no cost, they can work with CTO's Industry Concierge to share their opportunity with the participants in the Trial Site Network. The Industry Concierge will then assess whether any of the sites are interested in the study and facilitate introductions to any sites who are. Importantly, it can be often be smaller hospitals that are quick and efficient in study start up, or early adopters and a first customer in a new market. This program is not just for companies looking to do clinical trials! Market research and use case validation for tech companies is still research! If this program sounds interesting and you would like more information, please contact Andrew Haller at andrew.haller@ctontario.ca
