There are four significant benefits of conducting a virtual clinical trial. These are lower costs, higher levels of recruitment, increased amounts of data, and a more substantial amount of applications.
The three steps to creating a clinical trial enabled by the software are a) designing and reviewing the protocol, b) selecting the site and beginning start-up, and c) recruiting patients.
Once the clinical trial is created, there are two key players with a focus on data collection.
They are Operational Data Management Software and Drug and Supply Logistics.
The management of patient data and the collection of digital bio-markers are mostly done through virtual platforms in this kind of clinical research.
As technology continues to advance, researchers strive to enhance its use in medical research.
“Today, only 5% of the US population participates in clinical research. With the rise of new software tools that make research faster, cheaper, and more accessible and with a forward-looking FDA digital health team, the time is ripe for a clinical trial paradigm shift.”
