Hello, I’m Dr. Hala Borno, CEO of Trial Library, and practicing oncologist.
As a practicing oncologist at UCSF, Principal Investigator for clinical trials, and health equity researcher, I understand the challenges of offering and enrolling patients in clinical trials.
With my colleagues at Trial Library, we’ve created a fair way to reimburse practices for participating in trial pre-screening.
It's a win for you and your patients.
View Trial Library sponsored pre-screening opportunities for nearby clinical trials.
Pre-screen your patient panel for 90 days or save time and effort by delegating up-front pre-screening activities to Trial Library clinical staff.
Discuss trial opportunities with patients who qualify, either at their next appointment or during a newly scheduled visit.
Trial Library provides patient navigation services 24/7. We refer patients to transportation, food, and lodging resources.
Trial Library keeps you informed while your patient participates in the clinical trial. We help your practice schedule follow-up appointments with patients enrolled in trials.
If you are a research-capable site conducting trials, you can request sponsorship for your trials and recruit patients by working with Trial Library. Learn more
No. We reimburse providers for the time and effort of pre-screening patients. Providers are not required to refer any patients in order to receive the listed reimbursement amount when accepting a trial pre-screening opportunity.
The method and process of pre-screening patients is up to you and your practice. Pre-screening can be a combination of manual chart review and running queries in your EMR to identify potentially eligible patients. You may choose to pre-screen daily, weekly, or on a periodic basis.
For each trial, we ask that you pre-screen the patients you will see over the next 3 months.
Please remember you should submit referrals via Trial Library, if clinically appropriate, shortly after discussing with your patient. A reimbursement claim does not need to be submitted to refer patients. Reimbursement claims should be submitted after you have completed pre-screening.
To save time and effort, you can delegate most pre-screening activities to Trial Library.
Yes, we provide free on-site or remote clinical resources that review your electronic medical record (EMR) system to run queries. We will identify a shortlist of patients that match the trial criteria and then work with your staff to answer remaining questions about patient status to confirm strong potential matches for the clinical trial.
Please note: EMR access will need to be provided to a certified Trial Library clinical staff member if you choose this pre-screening option.
If you have a patient that is a strong potential match for a clinical trial, you should first discuss the trial with your patient. Trial Library generally asks that you discuss with the patient within 30 days of identifying a match.
You can provide the patient with trial information as well as information on Trial Library’s navigation support resources.
If the patient is interested in participating in the clinical trial, you should refer them to the trial through Trial Library’s website.
Sign in to Trial Library’s website and select “Refer patient”. You can enter information about the patient and then a Trial Library Ally Navigator will contact the patient to set-up an appointment at the trial site you select.
Our ally navigators serve as liaisons for the patient and clinical trial site.

Trial Library assesses the complexity of the eligibility criteria for the trial as well other factors that affect the effort required by the practice to identify candidates for a clinical trial. Trial Library generates a reimbursement amount that accounts for the approximated effort over a 90 day period.
After 90 days, we’ll remind you to submit a claim for reimbursement via our simple web-based form that takes approximately 5 minutes to complete. Reimbursement is for your pre-screening activities, paid regardless if any patients are referred. We will review your claim within 1-2 business days.
Claims for reimbursement must be submitted within 180 days from the time you join a trial opportunity.
