Three ways to adapt the virtual trial model to your unique research needs.
Virtual trials promise to disrupt the clinical research environment, allowing patients to participate in trials from their homes using wearables, telemedicine, and treatments shipped right to their door. But virtual trials are not a one-size-fits all approach. Every trial setting and patient population has unique needs, and the operational format has to be customized to accommodate those needs for a trial to be successful.
We’re still in the early days of adoption, but as we delve into this space, three core virtual trials models have emerged. All of these models offer time and cost savings for sponsors and patients, while addressing the unique quality, safety, and performance requirements of the trial setting. And each can be customized using a range of data management platforms, connected devices, and home health professionals.
