Frequently Asked Questions

About Verana Trial Connect

What is Verana Trial Connect?

Verana Trial Connect is a powerful cloud-based application that leverages data in clinical data registries to facilitate clinician awareness of certain clinical trial opportunities and provide clinicians and trial investigators a curated list of their own practice patients that may qualify for trials. Practices contributing to the American Academy of Ophthalmology IRIS Registry (Intelligent Research in Sight) may be eligible to participate in Verana Trial Connect.

For Clinicians

How does Verana Trial Connect help patients with rare conditions? 

Verana Trial Connect provides clinicians with a curated list of their own practice patients that may qualify for a trial. Eligible patients may have the option to participate in the clinical trial and will be reimbursed by the sponsor for any travel expenses related to trial participation. Select trial opportunities also offer no-cost genetic testing to qualifying patients.

For Trial Investigators

How does Verana Trial Connect help me recruit patients for clinical trials?

Verana Trial Connect streamlines patient recruitment and engagement for certain clinical trials by enabling investigators to identify patients in their own practice with high potential for study recruitment based on trial inclusion and exclusion criteria. Only you will have access to your data, patient list, and patient information, and only you will be able to communicate directly with your patients.

Data Privacy

Clinicians and practices contribute their EHR data to their medical society’s clinical data registry. Verana Health operates as a business associate that assists these registries by improving data quality and de-identifying the data. The anonymized data is used to create the Verana Health data platform, which uses only de-identified data to perform research and analytics. Under HIPAA, healthcare providers, as covered entities, may share PHI with partners, in this case the society’s clinical data registry, for treatment, payment, or healthcare operations (“TPO”).

All data used for Verana Trial Connect are stored securely in HIPAA-compliant cloud servers.

Only you will be able to see your data and patient list. Your personal data and that of your patients are not shared with any outside entity without your express consent.

Only you have access to the information of your patients. Verana Health does not communicate directly with your patients. The genetic counseling provider will receive patient information and contact your patients only upon your referral and your confirmation of patient consent. 


There are no costs related to participating in this program for you or your patients. All costs related to this program are covered by the trial sponsor. 

You can learn more about the clinical trial available for a patient by logging into your Verana Trial Connect account and clicking the “About This Program” on the main screen.

Verana Trial Connect is compatible with Chrome and Safari web browsers. The application is also both desktop and tablet compatible.
