June 30, 2020

JERSEY CITY, NJ – June 30, 2020 Healthcare Scene named Mike Wenger, Vice President of Patient Engagement for TrialScope, an honoree in the Patient Advocate of the Year category for the 2020 HITMC Awards, celebrating the best in marketing, PR and communications for healthcare and Health IT.

Three honorees for each category were chosen by an evaluation committee. Because of the tremendous response in 2019, the 2020 HITMC Awards were expanded to a record 27 categories, including Patient Advocate of the Year. This award honors those making a difference in the lives of patients locally, regionally or nationally.

Wenger, who dedicated his career to healthcare technology following a brain tumor diagnosis, has dedicated his skills as a software developer to help patients access and enroll in clinical trials. He was recognized for his role spearheading TrialScope Connect™, a patient referral collective connecting sponsors, recruiters, advocacy groups and patients for clinical trial recruitment.

TrialScope Connect is shifting the paradigm for clinical trial recruitment. Partners in the collective focus  on cooperation, not competition, in order to better match patients to trials.

“I am honored to receive this award,” said Wenger. “Having a dedicated award category to Patient Advocacy is a testament to the increased emphasis on the importance of patient advocacy in healthcare. There is plenty of room for innovation when it comes to treating patients and finding cures, and I hope as an industry, we continue to expand the number of voices we listen to as they bring unique perspectives and novel ideas.

“Lastly, my being honored as someone in health IT creates awareness that many people behind the scenes, not just those on the front lines treating patients and finding cures, play a part in better health for all.”
