DALLAS – May 9, 2024 – Scout, a premier provider of clinical trial services, announced its Scout Portal platform has clinched the "Best Patient Portal" award for the second consecutive year at the 8th annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards. Hosted by MedTech Breakthrough, an independent entity recognizing excellence in digital health and medical technology, this accolade underscores Scout's role in enhancing patient involvement in clinical trials. 

Built to meet the unique requirements of sponsors, studies, and patients around the world, the Scout Portal simplifies participant travel and payment processes, ensuring higher commitment and retention rates in clinical trials. Its accessibility from any device, translation into over 200 languages, and round-the-clock customer support remove language and time barriers, facilitating global participation.  

"Our mission to tackle the industry's most pressing challenge—retaining trial participants—is at the heart of what we do. Winning this award for the second time reaffirms our dedication to setting new benchmarks in patient care within clinical trials," says Scout CEO Paige Bingham. 

The MedTech Breakthrough Awards, recognizing health technology innovation globally, received entries from over 18 countries. Steve Johansson, managing director, praised Scout for making trials more accessible. “The biggest challenge in the industry is clinical trial patients adhering to and remaining in their respective trials,” said Johansson. “For the second year in a row, we recognize Scout for providing a seamless, stress-free experience for patients participating in clinical trials.” 

Scout's comprehensive Scout Clinical service suite extends beyond the Scout Portal, encompassing full management of travel and payment logistics. Offering multiple payment options and catering to diverse travel needs, Scout ensures a smooth, hassle-free experience for clinical trial participants. 

This recognition highlights Scout's innovative platform and significant impact on clinical trial processes and participant experiences, marking another milestone in Scout's journey towards revolutionizing patient-centered care in medical research.
