Novaseek is transforming how scientists and clinical researchers access real world clinical data and human biospecimens to power life sciences R&D in the era of precision medicine and population health management.

Novaseek’s award-winning novel cloud platform, the Clinical Data Network for Research (CDNR), easily interfaces with hospital data sources, and enables researchers to define patient cohorts through population analytics and to obtain biospecimens with longitudinal consented data to advance translational medicine, clinical development and post-launch observational studies.

Our Vision is a world where a clear understanding of real-world patients is central to every stage of life sciences research and drug development.

Our Solutions

Novaseek Research advances the development of new treatments via its turnkey solutions for observational and real-world data studies, including accessing fully consented biospecimens with associated clinical longitudinal data for research. Its novel Clinical Data Network For Research (CDNR) platform meets the needs of organizations involved in procurement of biospecimens, accrual of patients and use of clinical data to support biomedical research. Our customers include:

  • Bio-Pharma companies involved in drug, device or diagnostic development
  • CROs involved in selecting and recruiting research subject cohorts
  • Researchers conducting observation and real world data studies
  • Entities involved in developing biobanks and patient registries
  • Government and academic research organizations that use biospecimens and clinical data
Novaseek addresses such common challenges as:

  • Insufficient numbers of biospecimens and lack of detailed clinical annotation
  • Difficulty with longitudinal collection of biospecimens and clinical data
  • Lack of access to or transparency of real-world clinical data
  • Inability to prospectively identify patients who meet specific clinical parameters (such as treatment history, diseases, etc.)
  • Inefficient patient consent processes
Novaseek solves these problems in a unique fashion with its CDNR platform that:

  • Uses the electronic medical record (EMR) and other clinical data sources to extract demographic and detailed longitudinal data, such as diagnoses, medications and lab test results
  • Matches EMR data against both research specifications and available laboratory specimens
  • Helps define and track consented patient cohorts and supports the collection of biospecimens at various time points
  • Synthesizes all the donor and biospecimen data for easy reference by end-user researchers
Novaseek works with customers in several ways:

  • As a provider of biospecimens and associated data collected from Novaseek’s own network of hospitals
  • By subscription to the CDNR platform – for companies and research organizations with ongoing needs for biospecimens and/or data. Subscribers use CDNR to plan and recruit cohorts, manage biospecimen requests and track clinical data
  • By licensing CNDR to organizations that want to facilitate biospecimen and associated clinical data acquisitions, and to streamline patient consenting and recruitment for research projects and clinical trials within their own clinical sites
The CDNR platform offers a turn-key, intuitive user experience and ensures clinical relevance and significance of every experiment and every study. Never be limited by not having clinical patient data or the right biospecimens for your projects!

Aligning Drug Development to More Accurately Reflect the Real-World Patient

With the advance of precision medicine, ensuring that clinical studies more accurately reflect real-world patients needs to be at the heart of drug discovery and development. Historically, one of the reasons that so many studies fail is because patient cohorts are often not defined optimally for the treatment being investigated. Step one in changing this […]

How Researchers at Biopharma Companies and Academia Can Gain Better Insights into Real-World Clinical Phenotype Data To Improve Clinical Development

Precision medicine is an exciting area of innovation for researchers in academia and industry. It holds the promise of better outcomes for patients, and it is changing the way patients experience disease and treatment. By definition, the patient population for a targeted medicine is smaller than that of the disease category as a whole. Medicines affect patients differently.1 […]
