Start Webinar

Webinar Notes

While the regulatory bodies have supported decentralization of clinical trials, prior to COVID-19 many sponsors were reluctant to adopt these tools in practice. The global pandemic has forced many to re-evaluate their stance on remote eClinical solutions. In this presentation, we will discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by these shifts and the impact on traditional eClinical technology companies as the industry moves more toward decentralized trials.

  • Discover how the clinical trial landscape is shifting towards decentralization due to COVID-19 and learn about innovation from the regulatory sector
  • Learn how to integrate tools to help keep your studies in flight when patients can’t come to you
  • Discuss the impact of mid-study protocol changes
