  • Friday, October 23, 2020

Innovative Medicines Initiative Trials@Home aims to reshape clinical trial design, conduct and operations by developing and piloting standards, recommendations and tools to define and operationalize remote decentralized clinical trials (RDCTs). To date, this consortium of SMEs, private foundations, academia, and EFPIA members have analyzed over 46 remote studies to develop a list of best practices when building decentralized trials.

This webinar will present the latest results and updates from the IMI, as well as important considerations when developing decentralized strategies for clinical trials.  As frontline solution providers and members of the IMI, MRN and eClinical Health will give insights into how to maximize the value of decentralized solutions.
