Electronic informed consent (eConsent) platforms are among the most advantageous clinical technology products that sponsors and sites can add to their operations. These tools bring value for all stakeholders in the process.
- They simplify complex consent processes for participants, which leads to better engagement,
- They reduce the burden of paperwork for clinical staff, which leads to greater accuracy and efficiency, and
- They provide sponsors with real-time participant consent data to support the study management and regulatory processes.
So why have so many clinical trial sites delayed adoption of eConsent solutions?
