Other Recruitment Databases


While UMHealthResearch.org (see section on UMHealthResearch.org) can help you with many of your recruitment needs, there are also other available databases available to help you with recruitment.


DataDirect is a self-service tool that enables access to robust, up-to-date data on more than two million unique patients from across the Michigan Medicine enterprise to inform study design and determine feasibility of eligible patients for recruitment. You will need a Level 2 password to access this tool.

ResearchMatch.org is a national volunteer registry developed by Vanderbilt University that aims to serve as a complementary recruitment tool to help connect willing volunteers with researchers who are searching for appropriate volunteers to be placed in their research studies. ResearchMatch.org will provide study teams with a national volunteer cohort that can assist teams searching for specific conditions with a broader volunteer base.
