Jilani Gulam, President, CorEvitas Europe shared, “Since its founding, CorEvitas has been committed to improving the lives of patients, by systematically collecting high quality data and applying rigorous analytical methods. Like CorEvitas, Vestrum has been focused on building high quality specialty data sets. CorEvitas’ expansion and new capabilities continue to accelerate the achievement of its mission with innovative high quality curated data sources in new diseases.”
CorEvitas provides a holistic approach to capturing real-world data through patient-centered solutions including clinical registries, patient insight studies, biospecimen solutions and specialty EHR data.

Both organizations have built extensive networks of specialty physicians and practices. Vestrum Health currently partners with about 300 retinal physicians across the U.S. and the CorEvitas network collects comprehensive registry data from almost 500 sites in the U.S., Canada, and Japan. The level of transparency and trust in capturing high quality patient data while maintaining advanced standards of confidentiality and privacy is unparalleled in both organizations and will continue to be a primary focus moving forward.
Vestrum Health will continue serving the industry and its practices within the CorEvitas corporate family. There will be no change in the relationships with industry or partner practices.
Notes David Williams, MD, co-founder of Vestrum Health and past President of the American Society of Retinal Surgeons (ASRS), “Vestrum was founded on the principles of advancing patient care and bringing value to physicians and practices from their Electronic Health Record investments. The combination with CorEvitas fits perfectly with these principles, vastly enhancing the capabilities of both companies.”
John Pollack, MD, co-founder of Vestrum Health and past President of the ASRS adds “We are looking forward to leveraging CorEvitas’ breadth and depth of expertise in medical registry development and analytics to allow Vestrum to rapidly expand its range of services.
