Deloitte session: The impact of COVID-19 - Accelerating remote trials

COVID-19 has caused widespread disruption ongoing clinical trials for many biopharma companies as patients have been unable to make frequent visits to investigational sites for monitoring and data collection.

In response, international regulatory bodies have issued patient safety-focused guidance advising sponsors to employs a risk-based approach to implementing COVID-19 contingency plans. This guidance calls for the industry to consult with investigators and ethics committees to modify existing protocols and prioritising patient safety by encouraging a shift to virtual visits.

With a vaccine for COVID-19 estimated to be 18-24 months away, there has been an accelerated shift towards remote/decentralised trials. This short presentation discusses how adopting a “new normal” for clinical trial operations can help improve future R&D efficiency and return on investment once the pandemic has subsided.

While the idea of a remote or digital trial is not new, COVID-19 has accelerated the shift to implementing remote, decentralised trials. To discuss any of the considerations for virtual clinical trial adoption mentioned in the video, please do not hesitate to contact us.
