  • Patient Centricity And Virtualizing Technologies In A COVID-19 World

    As the COVID-19 pandemic rages on, clinical trial conduct is being reimagined in ways few thought possible not so long ago. Patient centricity is a growing and important movement within clinical trials. New information is constantly filtering in as to how sites are adapting to the COVID-19 era, and how patient-centric solutions are playing a growing role. The Society for Clinical Research Sites (SCRS) recently collaborated with Medidata (a Dassault Systemes Company) to conduct an online survey to measure current and anticipated levels of adoption of patient-centric tools, and the sites’ perspective on how patients have reacted to them.
