An echo system for Sponsors to push study material to Investigators and provide direct to Patient remote clinical trial
By Wessam Sonbol
Clinical trials are expensive, long and have so many moving parts
With people working across continents, allowing businesses to operate on a 24/7 basis, anytime, anywhere, on any device. This makes having a great mobile app for collaboration a must.
Do you use a cheat sheet to provide a breakdown of the protocol requirements?
PDFs of the protocol are usually emailed, followed by a paper copy of the protocol along with a laminated cheat sheet. When a new revision of the protocol is updated, the team has to follow the same process of emailing all their sites a PDF copy of the protocol, followed by an updated paper copy and/or a cheat sheet.
How do Patients and Investigators access study educational material?
Consider the following scenario: a patient visits the doctor's office for a specific condition and the doctor provides the patient with a brochure about a clinical trial of interest. The patient takes the brochure, places it somewhere and forgets about the clinical trial. Now the patient does not have a way to get access to that clinical trial without searching the internet or calling the doctor's office.
A mobile app provides many great features:
In a randomizaed controlled clinical trial conducted to stabilize daily funcitonal activity of Breast Cancer patients, a mobile app was used for better collaboration. The results in using a collaborative mobile app showed participants providing more frequent adverse events than those under supervision.
Frustration with inefficient processes that create redundant activities and complicate trial execution are at every site. Can an app that provides more sponsor/investigator transparency and increase efficiency help?
Investigators are always on the go, and need tools to quickly access study material to increase their efficiency and enroll patients faster. A mobile app can help reduce site manual interventions and help sell their services.
StudyPal provides an echo system across sponsors and investigators to increase clinical trial efficiency through collaboration. Here is what StudyPal can offer:
