EXPANDING CLINICAL TRIAL AWARENESS, BUILDING TRUST, AND ENCOURAGING PARTICIPATION TO END RACIAL DISPARITIES
The FDA is encouraging more patients to participate in clinical trials, especially people of different ages, races, ethnic groups, and genders. Currently, African Americans make up approximately 13.1% and Latinos comprise 16% of the U.S. population.
However, those numbers are considerably lower in clinical trials enrollment, at 8% and 5.6%, respectively Clinical trials have struggled to reflect the diversity of our nation. We all benefit from increasing the overall awareness of, and participation in, clinical trials.
When people don’t participate, it can become a population health issue. When certain populations are not represented in the data, the data is not complete.
Correlate Health’s NFT platform seeks to bring balance to the issue surrounding the lack of diversity in Clinical Trial participation by empowering patients with new and innovative ways to control the distribution of their health data and to encourage patient engagement with incentives, and overall build a system based on mutual trust for all participants.
