Subsidiary Represents NurseNow’s First Expansion into the International Market


Maumee, Ohio - January 26, 2021NurseNow Staffing is pleased to announce the launch of its subsidiary, NurseNow Canada, marking NurseNow’s first expansion into the international market. Like its American counterpart, NurseNow Canada will provide critical nurse staffing services for decentralized clinical trials and research. After launching in August 2020, NurseNow rapidly expanded to 27 states in just three months and is licensed to operate in 50 states, Puerto Rico, and now Canada.


“Our efforts in empowering patients across the United States are now expanding into the Canadian market to provide patient-centric care that is much needed to support the pharmaceutical industry,” said David Kissinger, CEO of NurseNow.


The move to decentralized clinical trials in the pharmaceutical industry took leaps forward during the COVID-19 pandemic, as this patient-centric approach to research provides a way for patients to participate from their homes. Even beyond the pandemic, it is expected that use of decentralized clinical trials will continue to grow, as they reduce barriers to patient participation and offer greater opportunities for improving the diversity of patients. NurseNow fills a critical need for the continuation of these trials by deploying experienced nurses quickly to empower patients to participate from home.


“Our company is founded on the principles of care, excellence, and respect — principles that contribute greatly to the success of these trials,” said Kissinger. “NurseNow is strongly positioned for all that 2021 and beyond have and hold for reaching the diverse communities of our world.”

New Global Industry Coalition That Aims to Dramatically Increase Access for All Patients Populations in Clinical Trials and Research Launches Today


Maumee, Ohio - January 13, 2021 NurseNow Staffing is pleased to announce becoming a founding member of an historic alliance of fifty life sciences and healthcare organizations that seeks to accelerate the broad adoption of patient-focused, decentralized clinical trials and research. The “Decentralized Trials & Research Alliance (DTRA),” which launched December 10th, 2020, unites industry stakeholders, including healthcare companies, regulators, patient groups and research organizations with a singular mission to make clinical trial participation widely accessible by advancing policies, research practices and new technologies in decentralized clinical research.


“The Decentralized Trials & Research Alliance (DTRA) is exactly the type of collaborative organization that will provide the much-needed support to the pharmaceutical industry in their journey toward a future that provides the greatest value to the diverse communities of our world,” said David Kissinger, CEO of NurseNow.


“We are extremely gratified to welcome NurseNow Staffing to the ‘Decentralized Trials & Research Alliance,’ said Amir Kalali, MD, founder of several collaborative life science communities, and co-convenor of DTRA. “By advancing decentralized research we can make the clinical trial process more patient-focused, increase trial efficiency and encourage use of technologies. We are excited by NurseNow’s commitment to embracing decentralized trials and to changing the culture that has been the rate limiter to innovation.”


Experts estimate that COVID-19 may set back non-pandemic clinical trials by several years due to prospective patients’ inability or reluctance to schedule visits at physical research locations. Decentralized approaches to conducting research facilitate participation by a more diverse patient population and could ease COVID-19-imposed difficulties for both patients and clinical investigators. The inclusion of representative patient populations in clinical trials by race, age, and geographic location has long been an operational challenge. COVID-19 has amplified the disparities and inclusion biases that have become hurdles for potential trial participants.


"Now is the time to share ideas and insights that will chart the future course of clinical trials, accelerating drug development and saving lives – and by taking part in the DTRA, NurseNow is demonstrating its leadership to drive change," said Craig Lipset, DTRA co-convener, clinical innovation advisor, and a pioneer in decentralized trials. “We have a responsibility to advance the health of people with unmet medical needs, and by convening stakeholders from pharma companies, regulators, technology leaders and patient communities, we can remove remaining barriers to adoption and impact patients today.”


NurseNow joins with its peer DTRA Member organizations to provide expertise to identify and address gaps and needs and advance best practices through effective education and communication. NurseNow urges other organizations interested in taking part to visit DTRA.org
