The ASCEND Clinical Collaboration Network™ serves as a centralized library of registry information that informs critical decision making throughout the registry design process. Teams can work together to explore resources for the specification and design of patient registries and research studies through built in project management services including co-authoring, scheduling, and web-conferencing. Within the Network your team will find extensive profiles of the most prominent registry vendors on the market as well as details on current registry efforts and an archive of clinical measures.

ASCEND also provides an environment to build collaborative relationships with life sciences, private payors, state and federal regulators, academic research organizations, patient advocacy organizations, and other professional associations to create sustainable business models for registry-based Health Intelligence Platforms that support mission-driven goals.
