Advanced digital tools such as electronic consent, telemedicine, wearable devices, electronic clinical outcome assessments, and remote patient monitoring being used in clinical trials are increasingly facilitating the safe deployment and operationalisation of decentralised clinical trials.

Decentralisation is broadening the accessibility of clinical trials for a larger and more diverse pool of patients, transforming patient-focused clinical research. The adoption of decentralised clinical trials was largely spurred by the Covid-19 pandemic, with several clinical research organisations (CROs) and health consultants working to provide a more comprehensive end-to-end solution for decentralised clinical trials.

Advantages of decentralised clinical trial platforms

Web-based, cloud-based software solutions are utilised to manage clinical trials, their reporting, and data collection. Web platforms support both patients and CROs in planning and activities, such as using real-time analytics and data for matching patient profiles with a clinical study criterion, clinical recruitment, clinical trial registration, clinical trials planning, patient-to-patient engagement, increasing patient diversity and randomisation rates, improving patient adherence and patient retention, and scheduling virtual visits.

Decentralised clinical trial platforms expand the geographical reach, increase the flexibility and convenience for patients as well as trial sponsors, reduce complexity and trial timelines, improve patient safety, and ensure continued care in case sites are unable to cover visits due to any unforeseen issues.

Decentralised clinical trials expand the boundaries of traditional trials to offer a more efficient and personalised experience without compromising on the precision and diligence of the trial. The collaboration between CROs, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies as well as supportive government measures, are expected to drive the decentralised clinical trial market.
