Mural Health and Ledger Run have announced a strategic collaboration for enhancing clinical operations.

The partnership will combine Mural Health’s Mural Link platform and the ClinRun platform from Ledger Run to improve clinical operations and the efficiency and outcomes of clinical trials worldwide.

Mural Health CEO and founder Sam Whitaker said: “Through our Mural Link Platform, we have introduced a next generation payments platform that drives strategic value to the study by genuinely making the participant’s experience easier.

“The platform also integrates with other eClinical systems to drive value in the recruitment funnel and in the remote collection of patient data. By eliminating the requirement of distributing physical debit cards, we are also able to deploy novel operational models that are especially relevant in DCT operational formats.”

Designed to make clinical trial participation easier, the Mural Link technology platform offers next-generation payment technology that helps participants select the way they receive payments.

It also introduces functionalities to help participants reach sites and eliminates predatory fees related to prepaid debit cards.

Additionally, it improves participant and site personnel communication and is easy to deploy.

Ledger Run CEO Gary Lubin said: “The industry is facing increasingly complex study designs, new challenges of remote and hybrid trials, and additional nuances of global, multi-cycle-multi-arm studies.

“The partnership creates an integrated solution to meet these challenges and provide a more attractive solution to the market through a broader set of capabilities. 

With the site activation and payment capabilities of Ledger Run, along with Mural Health’s participant payment and engagement platform, customers will be able to easily manage their clinical trial business operations.
