US technology and service provider THREAD has announced the addition of a globally compliant and fully configurable update to its telehealth virtual visit feature for decentralised clinical trials (DCTs).

With the launch of the new features, the company is expanding video and audio capture for complex electronic clinical outcome assessments (eCOA) during virtual visits in DCTs.

The new features will also help securely record and review visits. The solution supports several attendees at the time of a virtual visit.

THREAD CEO John Reites said: “Our most recent telehealth virtual visit enhancements enable more innovative video and audio data collection supporting a new, technology-driven model for site teams and study participants.

“Whether the participant is in the clinic or at home, we are enabling sites and sponsors to conduct a broader range of complex eCOA, video and audio capture in one platform.”

The new features will also enable sponsors and study sites to remotely capture movement evaluations, voice assessments, and more with complete workflows to support review, scoring and remote rater solutions.

The recordings can be controlled by both the site team and participant.

The features will also provide a transparent and instant process for participant opt-in to capture audio and/or video in real time to support continuous consent.
