The pandemic has had a significant impact on the clinical research industry. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, regulatory authorities have been calling for an increased adoption of decentralized clinical trials (DCTs). Devana Solutions has been pivotal during this time, helping central research operations teams collaborate safely and remotely on our platform and connect to decentralized site staff serving patients in underserved communities.
As a result, our PROPEL cloud solution has taken off as the superior research site-operations and analytics platform for leading research organizations, conducting decentralized trials, around the globe.
The Benefits of Decentralized Trials
More research organizations are moving to a decentralized trial model because they found success reaching new patients during the pandemic, as patients opted to stay home or avoid massive health care centers as part of their social distancing efforts.
Other advantages of decentralized trials include:
- Accelerated patient access
- Improved patient engagement and retention
- Increased diversity
Challenge: Communication and Exchange of Data
One of the challenges that sites faced as they moved to decentralized trials was the ability to communicate and share data. These teams used to operate alongside the central research operations teams, but now they were operating in alternate locations.
Where central research operations teams had unlimited access to on-premise data and the ease of connecting with someone in-house, they were forced to operate through delayed communication or shared spreadsheets.
The Answer: Devana Solutions
Devana Solutions provided these teams with customized cloud software that brings clinical research sites to patients in these underserved communities so they can benefit from clinical research as a care option.
Devana’s cloud technology also allows highly-skilled research operations professionals to share protocols and other supporting trial documentation with decentralized sites and community-based providers.
More importantly, Devana allows centralized researchers to collaborate with the sites during study start-up and through trial completion, regardless of the trial location.
The future of clinical research is bright. As the industry continues to evolve, Devana Solutions’ capabilities will evolve, as well.
