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

Date: Thursday, May 5th, 2022

Time: 12:00 p.m. CET

With only 5-10% of clinical trials expected to be fully de-centralized and 70-80% expected to be hybrid, sponsors, sites and CROs need to continue to solve the challenges of generating rich evidence in this decentralized reality. During this session, speakers will discuss:

  • Capturing high-quality data that meets regulatory standards and using rich evidence to determine the safety and efficacy of a medicine, medical device, or therapy.
  • Fusion of scientific and technological excellence to generate rich, gold-standard evidence.
  • How therapeutic area and domain expertise augments evidence-generating technologies and methodologies.
  • The impacts of decentralized and hybrid trials on clinical evidence generation including: the influences of patient accountability, how science drives rich evidence, and the impact of rich evidence on studies.
