DIA was last week and it was a whirlwind of industry chats, networking and knowledge. From GDPR to patient-engagement, the hottest trial topics were shared and addressed with thousands leaving the conference with ideas to innovate and improve their clinical trials.
We had a lively booth, sharing our expertise in eCOA and eConsent with anyone who stopped by. We participated in sessions on industry trends and chatted along the side lines with eClinical innovators.
7 Tweet-worthy Teachings from DIA 2018
|1.||Worry less about GDPR as, typically, electronic informed consent is GDPR compliant since you are collecting explicit opt-in from participants.|
|2.||Loss of personal touch (connection) in remote trials can become a barrier to trial participation. So, finding a balance between virtual and in-person is key.|
|3.||Virtual trials are coming to the forefront of the industry as ~70% of US patients live over 2 hours from their local site.|
|4.||The potential use of gaming technology can allow for better objective measures in clinical trials.|
|5.||Incorporating the right mobile technology in your trial from continuous glucose monitors to smart phones ensure the patient is at the center and allows for multiple data sources for a more effective trial.|
|6.||In a patient-first trial, you must consider the wants and needs of patients before, during AND after the study.|
|7.||CRF Health has a proven eSource platform that integrates an industry proven eCOA solution with an award-winning eConsent solution.|
