Innovative mobile technologies are continuously being introduced, and savvy life sciences organizations are taking note. Many of these technologies have the potential to drastically reduce the time and cost of clinical trials, from subject recruitment to data collection, not to mention likely create a boost in patient engagement.
Examples of using digital technologies in clinical trials:
- Mobile apps and artificial intelligence to match subjects with clinical trials
- Mobile apps to assess the severity of a subject’s disease as part of the screening process
- Online meetings with subjects to obtain informed consent
- Digital pills that track and report subject adherence to treatment protocols
Next week, my colleague, Param Singh, will explore the opportunities and challenges that various new and emerging technologies present for the life sciences industry. We’d love for you to join us.
