The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the industry to quickly adapt to a more flexible clinical trial model. What was once perceived as risk is now viewed as risk mitigation and the will to embrace and scale mobile-digital tools in clinical research has never been stronger. It’s clear that patients and investigators need more choices to participate in clinical research remotely.

The 7th annual Mobile in Clinical Trials conference was presented virtually this year. It reported on the latest progress in applying mobile-digital tools and patient-facing technologies for flexibility while connecting and empowering patients. It  featured collaborative, experience-based case studies to help R&D move faster to provide more choices for patients and investigators while obtaining better outcomes in drug development. The cost of not doing this will become too great.
