As decentralized clinical trials become more popular, many sites and sponsors have begun to wonder how they can adopt decentralized methods without sacrificing compliance or efficiency.
The COVID-19 pandemic proved that patients can participate in clinical trials using video calls, apps, wearable devices, and visits to their local physician, not just by visiting the research site in person.
However, these hybrid decentralized trials work best when there are software integrations between research sites and their sponsors. When that connection exists, research sites can receive accurate source data from doctor’s offices, pharmacies, and patients and send that data and their regulatory documents to their sponsor remotely.
So how do you set up the site-sponsor connection and make decentralized trials effective and secure?
