The agreement means the ACC's contribution will include identifying Phase III Odyssey Outcomes clinical trial candidates using its Pinnacle registry—the registry's first use for clinical trial recruitment—and assisting with physician- and patient- education programs regarding “the value of clinical trial research.”
