How Clinpal technology enabled a successful remote clinical trial

The clinical trial industry is in desperate need to reinvent itself and address the rising cost and complexity of trials today. Today, it is more difficult to recruit and retain patients in trials than ever before. The traditional trial model does not address the barriers or motivators of trial participation.

Conducting clinical trials remotely involves the use of efficient, patient-centric technologies that have tremendous promise in addressing both the cost concerns, reduced timelines, as well as achieving higher levels of patient engagement. The VERKKO remote trial was designed to evaluate the regulatory view, efficiency gains and patient and site feedback for conducting clinical trials remotely.

This webinar will demonstrate the study design and systems used in the VERKKO remote trial. Results and performance metrics will also be shared. The audience will learn about study designs that are ideal for a remote approach. During the webinar, we will also examine how methodologies of a remote trial can be applied to traditional trials resulting in improved efficiency and a boost to patient participation.

Register now to learn more from the pioneering experts from the Clinpal team as well as for the pharma perspective from Sanofi.
