What we know as work has experienced a major transformation. This shift and the changes it precipitated have affected how we now conduct and perform monitoring of clinical trials.
A decade ago, the clinical trial industry shunned any notion of conducting clinical trial procedures or trial monitoring activities in any form except in-person and on-site. Fueled by employee demand for a more flexible module of hybrid and remote work, researchers and sponsors are adapting to this new paradigm. The onset of the COVID-19 epidemic forced the industry to abruptly pivot and adapt. Continually evolving technological advances continue to enhance the fields of medicine and clinical research. Although complex in nature, retooling the conduct and clinical monitoring in clinical trials has become imperative.
