Previous work has been done on both optimizing the clinical trials process, and on sending critical laboratory results and decision support through paging systems. We report the first integration of both these solution, focusing on improving the clinical trial recruitment process. We describe a clinical trial needing a real-time method of recruiting patients in an unbiased manner, quickly enough that study tests can be obtained before patients leave or samples discarded. The report describes how the ten currently recruited patients were found and how diagnoses of potentially life-threatening disorders are being made.
