Title: Ensuring Rich Evidence in DCTs in a World that Demands Trial Anywhere™

Date: Tuesday, June 7th, 2022

Time: 4:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. EST

With only 5-10% of clinical trials expected to be fully decentralized and 70-80% expected to be hybrid, sponsors, sites and CROs need to continue to solve the challenges of generating rich evidence in this Trial Anywhere reality. While capturing high-quality data might meet regulatory standards, rich evidence determines the safety and efficacy of a medicine, medical device, or therapy. Generating rich, gold-standard evidence requires a fusion of scientific and technological excellence. Learn how therapeutic area and domain expertise augments evidence-generating technologies and methodologies. This session will address:

  • The impacts of decentralized and hybrid trials on clinical evidence generation
  • The influences of patient accountability
  • How science drives rich evidence
  • The impact of rich evidence on studies
