Digital transformation in clinical research
The pandemic has started a shift in many industries, especially for the more traditional ones. With new safety measures necessary, the world is moving more and more towards a virtual approach. Going digital with your business is giving you and your teams more opportunities to stay on track of your goals while obeying safety measures, even during a pandemic, was going to the office might not be possible.
This important step of digital transformation was long overdue. For the past years, sponsors and CROs have been slowly moving towards a more digital approach, however, many research sites are still working with a more manual workflow, making it hard to collect data and stay on top of the tasks that need to be done. Now with Covid-19, the process of transforming the clinical research industry into a more digital one has to speed up and the adaptation of new innovation strategies to respond to the current reality has to be put in place. This had an immediate effect on how research sites were also retaining and recruiting patients for their clinical trials, as no general infrastructure was given to make an easy switch.
Even though a direct impact can be seen, with many clinical trials paused, this new age is also a big new opportunity for clinical trials. Decentralizing trials, using artificial intelligence, machine learning, and direct-to-patient services are some new options that could be implemented for clinical trials in the near future. But also when we are looking at the processes in order to make clinical trial recruitment work - going digital brings a lot of advantages to boost recruitment performances.
We have created Citrus to open the window of opportunities for you to go digital.
