MyPath™ for Clinical: Enhanced Digital Clinical Trials

A platform that accelerates digital clinical trial execution

Better health outcomes start with stronger connections. ConvergeHEALTH’s MyPath platform effectively connects patients, caregivers, clinicians, investigators, and life sciences organizations to accelerate digital clinical trials, improve clinical trial matching, and drive retention.

Hearts of Athletes Program advances digital clinical studies

The Hearts of Athletes Program, powered by Deloitte’s ConvergeHEALTH MyPath for Clinical cloud-based digital platform, is embarking on an innovative new study to understand the effects of COVID-19 on athletes’ heart health. The MyPath platform will make it possible for athletes to enroll and participate in the study from any mobile device.

This approach has the potential to allow patients to participate from wherever they are, have a better experience, and helps the physicians, investigators, and others involved in the study collaborate and respond more quickly. It could also give us the tools and a template for future studies.

Conducting clinical trials during a pandemic

COVID-19 has impacted the industry’s ability to conduct trials with broad travel restrictions, concerns about investigative site capacity, and most importantly patient safety considerations. US and international regulatory bodies have moved quickly to encourage the adoption of remote data capture and telemedicine capabilities with patient and investigator safety as paramount concerns.1

MyPath for Clinical is a cloud-based digital platform designed to accelerate the execution of digital clinical trials. It brings digital engagement, telemedicine via virtual consults, and the ability for remote data collection and compliance monitoring, to allow trial processes to proceed remotely during COVID-19, and help enhance the productivity and patient experience of trials once the pandemic is behind us. MyPath can improve engagement among patients, investigators, and clinical research associates (CRAs) through real-time data access, a convenient and effective user experience, and more digital direct-to-patient data collection and sharing. It can be used globally and tailored across study phases while supporting various therapeutic areas.
