Verily, a subsidiary of Google parent company Alphabet, says it’s partnering with drug giants Novartis, Otsuka, Pfizer and Sanofi in an effort to “transform clinical research.”

Verily is offering up its Project Baseline, which is “designed to engage more patients and clinicians in research, increase the speed and ease of conducting studies and collect more comprehensive, higher quality data.”

Project Baseline launched in 2017 and it has evolved to become a Big Data giant. Novartis hailed the new partnership as an “opportunity to develop a new trial recruitment that gives patients and their physicians great insight into the process of finding treatments for their disease.”
