Clinical trials are changing. Companies continue to struggle with patient recruitment and the high cost and lengthy timelines of conducting clinical trials. Even once we recruit patients, keeping them engaged with the study can be a challenge. The lack of real-time monitoring of patients participating in trials also prevents researchers from having the quality data they need. This has led many in the industry to realize that we can’t conduct trials of the future using technologies of the past.
One of the emerging trends that will enable trials of the future and make them better for patients is the emergence of digital health and wearable devices. In this eBook, we present seven articles showing the potential of these technologies to reform clinical trials. Read about how Fitbit is gathering insightful data on users, how Otsuka is using real-time data to change the trial paradigm, how digital devices can be used to maximize patient engagement, and much more.
We hope these articles will get you thinking about the future of your own trials, and how digital and wearable devices will give your patients a better experience, and help you get the data you need for a regulatory approval.
