Happy 2012 and we kick off to some great news here at TrialX.

We are very excited about this as our application Ask Dory, represents some cutting-edge innovation to help you and your loved ones find clinical trial investigators and connect with them effortlessly. Ask Dory works a personalized and interactive expert system that uses an intelligent entropy based decision tree algorithm (learn more) to narrow down the possible matches by leading patients through a step-by-step question answering system. Dory not only provides patient’s intelligent matches, but it also enables patients to talk to research sites in real-time using a ‘live call’ button. When used, Dory automatically dials and connects both the site and patient in the same telephonic conversation. Shown below is a schematic of Dory making a Live call to connect a patient to a clinical trial site.
