Scout Clinical Wins 2023 MedTech Breakthrough Award

Prestigious International Annual Awards Program Recognizes Standout Digital Health & Medical Technology Products and Companies

DALLAS – May 3, 2023  Scout Clinical, a leading provider of comprehensive clinical trial patient services, today announced that its Scout Portal solution has been selected as “Best Patient Portal” in the 7th annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by MedTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global health and medical technology market.

Scout Clinical, part of the Meeting Protocol Worldwide family of brands, makes it easier for patients to stick with clinical trials by providing stress-free, confidential, and personalized participant travel and payment services.

The Scout Portal provides the flexibility to accommodate the unique needs of every sponsor, study, country, site and patient including detailed reporting, transparent billing and regulatory compliance. The proprietary, web-based platform is easily accessible via computer or mobile device. It can also be translated into over 200 languages and offers 24-hour live, multilingual customer service. The portal is also HIPAA, GDPR, and country-specific data privacy compliant.

“What an honor it is to be recognized by MedTech Breakthrough. We understand the nature of clinical trials and the sensitivity required for supporting patients' unique, individual needs. Our solid reputation, flexible attitude, and consistent performance means we understand the clinical trial process. From the big picture to the small details, we take care of everything,” said Paige Bingham, co-founder, Scout Clinical. “Our mission is to be regarded as the best clinical trial patient travel and reimbursement company in the world, which is why we hand-crafted the Scout Portal. At the end of the day, these specialized patient-support services benefit the Sponsor, CRO, and Site Personnel allowing them to focus on what really matters—the patient.”

Once a site registers a patient in the Scout Portal, a trip/payment request is submitted by either the patient or the site administrator. Trip logistics and/or payment requests are then arranged by the Scout Patient Liaison and fulfilled by a global team member. Additionally, depending on the ICF language, Scout Clinical can restrict patient access to the Portal.

The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Telehealth, Clinical Administration, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR), Virtual Care, Medical Devices, Medical Data and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 4,000 nominations from over 17 different countries throughout the world.

“Not many people think about the administrative burdens that factor into patient care and clinical research. Trial integrity is just one of many factors that organizations running clinical trials have to face, but there are also compliance issues and patient privacy to be taken into account,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “The Scout Portal is a one-stop-shop for site and patient requests that addresses these complexities and challenges. With Scout’s customized, on-demand, transparent reporting, the company provides transparent costs, budgets, and reporting throughout the life of a study. Their innovative approach to patient services meets the needs of the sponsor on a country by country, site by site and patient by patient basis. We extend our sincere congratulations to Scout Clinical for taking home a well-deserved 2023 MedTech Breakthrough Award.”
