Nearly three out of four biopharmaceutical firms modified traditional protocols to adopt a form of decentralized studies – also known as virtual or siteless trials – in an effort to keep drug development programs on course during COVID-19. The strategy proved successful. Now, having gained a foothold in the biopharma industry, decentralized trials are poised to play a major role in drug development post-pandemic.
To execute decentralized research strategies, sponsors are turning to an integrated supply chain solution known as Direct-to-Patient Services. Direct-to-Patient Services allow patients to participate in clinical trials from their homes by providing them with study drugs and care where they live.
