Accrual to Clinical Trials (ACT)

The ACT Network is a real-time, open access platform allowing researchers to explore and validate feasibility for clinical studies




UC San Diego Altman Clinical and Translational Research Institute (ACTRI) is pleased to announce that it has partnered with the Accrual to Clinical Trials (ACT) Network to bring real-time cohort exploration and discovery to its researchers. ACT was developed by members of the Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program consortium to enable cohort discovery using a web interface in a HIPAA-compliant manner, without requiring study-specific IRB approval. It offers open-access to a national network of leading academic medical research centers and generates aggregate patient count data from an investigator's real-time, iterative searches. Using ACT, UC San Diego Health researchers can explore patient populations, confirm and demonstrate study feasibility, and identify potential partners for multi-site studies. ACTRI is one of the first 21 CTSA hubs across the country to launch the ACT Network.

ACT is available to all UC San Diego Health researchers at no charge, but registration is required.
