Roche Navify Clinical Trial Match, Navify Publication Search

Roche has launched two Navify clinical decision support apps, Navify Clinical Trial Match and Navify Publication Search, to help oncologists access clinical trial information and publications. Both are available on the Navify Tumor Board platform.

The Navify Clinical Trial Match app identifies clinical trial options from 11 international registries, based on patient-specific attributes such as age, sex, biomarkers, and various tumor attributes. The registries include ClinicalTrials.gov, the German Clinical Trials Registry, and the European Clinical Trials Registry. The Navify Publication Search app mines several publication sources, including PubMed, the American Society of Clinical Oncology, and the American Association of Central Cancer Registries, for relevant literature. The content of both apps is provided by MolecularMatch, a clinical informatics company.

Roche said it plans to add more apps, including from partners and third parties, in the future.
