Recorded on: August 4, 2020

There is a growing body of evidence showing the value of decentralized trials that share real-time data between patients and investigators. Decentralized trials, which utilize mobile apps and the use of connected medical devices, can positively transform the patient experience, leading to better recruitment and improved study retention. The use of behavioral insights, by means of nudges and reminders, can improve protocol adherence while real-time data sharing can better inform decision making.


During this engaging session, you can expect to learn about:

  • Current industry trends and evolving best practices
  • Picking providers based on appropriate capabilities
  • Analyzing tools, technology and connected devices
  • Considering the participant journey and how to design trials with their experience in mind
  • Utilizing behavioral nudges
  • Other important considerations for designing, conducting, and evaluating decentralized clinical trials
