Event Overview

It’s no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic drove a rapid increase in the adoption of decentralized clinical trials (DCTs), which delivered ample benefits for sponsors, study teams and most importantly, patients. These benefits included:

  • Simplifying the sponsor technology ecosystem with one enterprise solution.
  • Reducing patient site visits by up to 75%.
  • Accelerating enrollment timelines by 50%.
  • Real-time data and insights.
  • More diverse patient populations.

Now that many sponsors are embracing DCTs, these organizations must focus on scaling their approach to ensure long-term success and positive return on investment (ROI). To achieve scale, digital strategies must be embedded early into the pipeline of pharma and biotech companies, requiring the formation of standardized processes and partnerships that work together to achieve a common goal.
To find out more, watch this free webinar with experts from Medable, Gilead Sciences , Syneos Health, and Veeva. The panel discusses best practices and provides examples on how to implement and scale DCTs across large organizations while mitigating potential risks.
