Cedars-Sinai announced that its Research for Her online registry that matches women with research studies and clinical trials.

Cedars-Sinai announced that its Research for Her online registry that matches women with research studies and clinical trials, enrolled study participants more quickly when compared with traditional paper-based registries. A total of 322 women were enrolled in the Cedars-Sinai Research for Her registry over a 14-month period - a 4.3 fold increase over the paper-based registry. Of these 322 women, 263 were matched to at least one study and of those, 39 eligible individuals went on to enroll. The enrollment process increased in speed by 27 percent. 

The Research for Her registry also spurred a 50 percent increase in enrollments for the Gilda Radner Hereditary Cancer Program, part of the Women's Cancer Program at the Cedars-Sinai Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute, in 2014. Research for Her, created in 2013, is currently open to all women over the age of 18 with or without a prior history of cancer. It soon will expand to also enroll and link men to available clinical trials or research studies at Cedars-Sinai.
