Still searching for the one-size-fits-all DCT-ePRO/eCOA-Patient Engagement solution?

Lately I’ve been sharing a story from the history of aviation and its surprising parallels to today’s clinical trials.

A growing number of clinical trial stakeholders recognize the need to build and execute a patient engagement strategy. It’s an exciting development for the industry.

What has COVID taught us about eCOA and ePRO?

In an ideal world, this would be a “post-pandemic” blog. Instead, this is an “ongoing pandemic” post reflecting on what’s changed in clinical trials since 2020, which of those changes are likely to endure and why we should maintain momentum. Over the past two years, the pandemic has prompted changes across industries. Consumers have made …
