Direct-to-Patient Remote Research

While no single study design and conduct strategy should be taken as the solution to the financial and operational burdens of clinical development, the clinical research industry is poised to begin introducing a more patient-centered clinical trial research model. As with any novel approach, there are many factors that must be evaluated, pertinent to scientific, operational, technological, regulatory, and other considerations. This whitepaper provides a basic overview of what is involved in designing and implementing a virtual clinical trial and includes a discussion of important considerations and solutions.
