News Topic: The Trust Alliance Publishes Membership Criteria for Online Healthcare Data Collection Providers
Date: 2012-Mar-30




LONDON – Friday 23rd March 2012 – The Trust Alliance has today published details of how online healthcare data collection providers can apply for membership.

The Trust Alliance was set up in November 2011 as a “not-for-profit” organization by its three founder members ( All Global , M3 Inc , and Medefield ).  Its mission is to advance healthcare data collection standards, develop and promote best practices and foster trust in online physician research. 

The initial group of like-minded member organizations was necessarily small to create a firm foundation for the initiative to launch.  However, The Trust Alliance made it clear from the outset that membership would be open to allow other reputable data collection providers to join provided they were also prepared to commit to the aims of The Trust Alliance.

Now that The Trust Alliance has established itself with industry first initiatives such as the “Universal blacklist” of potentially fraudulent or bad research respondents and standardized post-fieldwork reporting (The Quality Report), the Trust Alliance is delighted to offer the opportunity for other online healthcare data collection providers to become members. 

Membership criteria are available to view on The Trust Alliance website ( or from industry liaison officer, Allan Bowditch ( and the application process will commence in April 2012.
