Clinical Sites
How Did The Pandemic Impact Clinical Trial Sites?

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the U.S. in March 2020, many drug developers were caught by surprise. With clinics overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients and the reluctance of some patients to venture out to those clinics, many trials faced the prospect of being delayed or canceled. Decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) and hybrid trials, which can take studies from the clinics to the patients, seemed to be the solution to keep things on track.

This leads pharma companies to adopt a business model that focuses on an indication that will help the most people. But that model also means children will always be at the end of the line.

Applying Consumer Engagement Strategies To eClinical Technology

When it comes to patient engagement, the experience and technology gaps apparent in the clinical trial space have resulted in a lag for virtual technologies that offer comparable functionality to those pioneered by other sectors.
