  • Balancing Convenience And Engagement In Decentralized Clinical Trials

    Jan 04 | Clinical Research News | Decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) are a valued option for many would-be study participants as well as a chance to customize the research experience and cater to their needs, according to Ken Getz, founder and chair of the Center for Information & Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP). Findings of CISCRP’s 2021 Perceptions and Insights study indicate interest in DCT approaches is quite high provided they don’t interfere with the quality of patients’ personal relationship with study staff.

  • Equipping Your Cold Chain Infrastructure for Decentralized Clinical Trials

    Dec 23 | Clinical Research News | Decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) mitigate the burden of transportation, lodging, meals, and dependent care that often pose barriers to study participants. Still, the adoption of DCTs requires a fundamental shift in infrastructure to maintain compliance. This not only includes a shift to the cloud for virtual collaboration between stakeholders and data sharing, but also the elements of infrastructure that cannot be virtualized, such as the cold chain.
