With all of the buzz around decentralized clinical trials and patient centricity, it’s easy to get carried away about trial technology. Yes, it’s exciting. It’s powerful. It can be a game-changer. But also true – it’s challenging. It’s complicated. And it can create more problems than it solves.
At Aperio, we’ve seen it all before. Our Trial Technology Services experts have lived through — and made sense of — the introduction of EDC and the hype around Big Data. They can help you stay on top of ever-evolving technology: apps, wearables, Bluetooth-enabled devices or whatever comes next. And, even more important, help you make decisions based on what’s best for your sites, your patients and your endpoint.
That means being practical — matching the hardware, software and vendors to the task at hand; considering issues around proprietary devices and app validation; thinking hard about costs, support and the potentially negative impact on patients (not to mention study coordinators).
So forget the shiny objects. And remember what really matters: compliant patients generating verifiable data that’s properly gathered, efficiently shared and fully mined.
