WIRANO – is an innovative platform for organizing clinical trials around the world

Our mission

Revolutionizing the organization of clinical trials to accelerate drug development in order to increase patient access to the most advanced treatments.

Clinical trials are increasingly complex and costly for drug developers

Finding patient participants for clinical trials is one of the greatest challenges in drug development

Half of ongoing clinical trials fail to meet their patient enrollment targets.

Finding a suitable clinical center is a problem for sponsors

Selecting clinical sites and accessing information about their track records for previous studies is a challenge. And at present, there is no effective, reliable communication platform for sponsors and research teams.

6-10 months

from the start of the study
to the first patient

50% of studies

do not recruit patients
on time

Pharmaceutical companies

spend $30-40 billion annually
on clinical trials

$1-2 billion

is spent on the development and
launch of any innovative drug
onto the market

The cost of a day’s

worth of a delay can
exceed $1 million

About the product

We have developed an innovative cloud-based solution that optimizes the processes involved in organizing clinical trials. It aims to minimize barriers and accelerate drug development. It allows:

Sponsors

Find researchers in a few days who are able and willing to conduct a specific clinical study.

Researchers

Publish information about a clinical trial within a few hours and start recruiting patients who wish to participate in it.

Patients

Find a suitable clinical study in a few minutes and send an application for enrollment in the trial.

The Benefits

Wirano is a global clinical trials optimization platform using cloud and mobile applications localized in different languages. The platform is powered by a centralized server system designed for collecting and processing data using scalable business logic algorithms with incorporated elements of artificial intelligence.

The main modules of the system are (available in the web and mobile applications):

Patient’s personal account with a convenient search bar and selection of the most suitable clinical trials (patent pending) with a pre-screening function for granting admission into the selected study.

Researcher’s personal account with a detailed information dashboard on potential studies and patients who may be eligible for participation in the study.

Sponsor’s personal account with a business intelligence system that grants the ability to check the feasibility of the clinical trials for any specific researcher, conduct analysis of data from a set of previous studies, and have direct communication with researchers within the system.

A specialized messenger system for organizing communications between research participants and receiving news on topics of interest through an automatically tuned news channel (patent received).

A financial subsystem for sponsoring clinical trials.

The clinical trials market

According to Grand View Research, the global clinical trials market is growing at 5,1% per year and will reach $69.9 billion by 2027.

The number of registered clinical trials over the past 20 years has grown tenfold.

Total number of studies registered on ClinicalTrials.gov since 2000, based on the First Received date.
