Clinical research

We're seeking partners to help us further advancements in medical care

Optum, formerly HealthCare Partners has a long history of conducting clinical trials, beginning our involvement in drug research in 1982. In 1984, the program expanded into a full-fledged clinical research program.

Our ability to engage in robust clinical research stems from our years of experience, patient population of nearly 600,000 in the Los Angeles Metro area , and extensive technology resources.

The members of the Clinical Research team are dedicated, experienced and highly motivated individuals whose primary goal is to offer the advantages of participating in a research study to our patients. They understand that it is of major importance to uphold the highest standard of care and adherence to the dictates of each study protocol and to conduct the study according to Good Clinical Practice.

By enrolling our patients in trials of new medications or new uses for available medications, we are able to add to the pool of data on safe and effective ways to manage disease. Some of the areas our clinical trials have addressed are:

  • Allergy
  • Men's health
  • Asthma
  • Migraines/headaches
  • Bronchitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Chest pain
  • Osteoporosis
  • Common colds
  • Pneumonia
  • Diabetes
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Ear infection
  • Skin disorders
  • High blood pressure
  • Sinusitis
  • High cholesterol
  • Urinary problems
  • Influenza
  • Women's health

We welcome your participation in this important research. If you are interested in more information about sponsoring a clinical trial at Optum, please contact us.
