Franciscan St. Francis Health, a three-hospital health system in suburban Indianapolis, is a member of the 14-hospital Franciscan Alliance that is linked through a single eMR system designed to support integrated research operations. Franciscan St. Francis Health operates 600 licensed beds, 20 primary care clinics, and 35 specialty clinics, supported by an affiliated medical group boasting more than 135 physicians.
Franciscan St. Francis Health draws patients from around the state of Indiana and averages 2,000 inpatient admissions and 40,000 outpatient visits every month. Each of the investigators at Franciscan St. Francis Health maintains a robust clinical practice, from which they recruit patients for enrollment into clinical trials; this decreases recruitment costs, accellerates enrollment, and increases patient retention.
The centralized Office of Research Services supports clinical research across all therapeutic disciplines, providing a single point of contact for study start-up and conduct.
