Clinical Trial Data Collection
Facilitating collection of samples
Facilitating the collection of samples for participants in clinical trials in their own homes rather than having to attend hospitals
While there have been advocates calling for the use of technology to enable distributed clinical data collection for some time, the Covid pandemic proved a catalyst to for broader adoption. In response to the pandemic, researchers adopted telemedicine, community partnerships, and simplified protocols to protect patients while maintaining the integrity of studies.
At the start of the pandemic, regulators produced guidelines for conducting clinical trials when patients couldn’t leave their homes. This allowed clinical trial developers to embrace at-home visits and virtual checkups. The PDX software will support the continued broader adoption of these practices.
