Clinical research is more important now than ever before, with the Covid-19 vaccine development greatly advancing the urgency of clinical collaboration. More people are paying attention to clinical trials and their results than in recent years, but there is also increased nervousness around the clinical process as a result of a seemingly expedited vaccine development. This public hesitance could be dangerous to the future of clinical studies, if clinical trial companies are unable to assuage some of the concerns including those about transparency, and public education.
Citruslabs tackles some of the biggest problems facing clinical trials today, such as faltering recruitment and patient engagement. We also recognize the constantly evolving nature of the clinical realm, and our platform reflects a priority we believe to be constant throughout these changes: patient experience. We emphasize the benefits for both researchers and patients alike that arise from enhanced communication and education efforts, as well as accessibility measures such as an engaging, dynamic patient portal.
What actually makes us different?
As predicted by Worldwide Clinical Trial’s Aman Khera, clinical studies will face unique challenges as we move into 2021. Khera anticipates field-wide introspection in the areas of transparency and accountability, public education, clinical trial diversity, real-world evidence, and digitization. These predictions reflect the public hesitance we’re seeing towards clinical trials now, and align with our goals for what we hope to help clinical research sites achieve this year.
The pandemic has demonstrated the importance of timely data that maintains transparency and integrity, which our platform is uniquely equipped to help you achieve.
Our platform begins by helping you to organize and understand your data, starting with simplifying how sites create and share vital reports. Activity reporting and patient insights are standardized for each trial to save you time by avoiding manual data entries.
Further, in the interest of transparency and open communication, we enable you to collect feedback through automated messages that let you know exactly what patients like and don’t like --whether it’s protocol related, or something personal like the friendliness of staff. We give you the tools to understand your funnel, and discover where in the process patients are dropping out and why.
We’re different because we allow you to spend more time analyzing data, and less time manually collecting it. This makes it easier for you to take part in the kind of clinical introspection Khera’s predicted for 2021, and to improve your patient engagement long term.
