The Covance patient and site interface will be powered by Medable’s modular software platform. This will offer immediate access to applications, which will enable patients to take part in decentralised clinical trials.

Furthermore, the platform will allow data and system interoperability, aid in remote data collection and engagement between sites, patients, and clinical investigators.

Covance Enterprise Solutions president Bill Hanlon said: “Working together, we can apply the full capabilities of LabCorp Diagnostics business, Covance, and our technology ecosystem to extend patient access, improve the patient experience, and accelerate timelines for clinical development.

“We will continue to play a critical role as aggregators and integrators to provide customers with the access, flexibility, and scale necessary to enable global decentralised studies, and to rapidly innovate in ways that improve the patient experience and trial efficiency.”

According to Medable, the firms are creating the first data-driven, decentralised trial ecosystem with this partnership.

Medable co-founder and CEO Michelle Longmire said: “Working with LabCorp Diagnostics and Covance allows us to deepen patient engagement and reduce burden for trial participants, and this decentralised trial ecosystem will help us get effective therapies to patients faster. This innovative ecosystem will accelerate trial timelines.”

Last year, Covance launched a solution to transform the conduct of decentralised clinical trials.
