As the clinical trial industry is fully committing to the adoption of technology, MRN is listening and advancing its digital technology platform to fully support the demands of Decentralized Clinical Trials, Virtual Clinical Trials and Hybrid Clinical Trials.

In this webinar, the speaker will discuss implementation considerations along with the studies and patient populations who would most benefit from technological support.

At MRN, patients have and always will be at the heart of our DNA – it’s important to provide them with a protocol design that best supports them, their families and communities. We’ve been using our expertise for the last 15 years to improve recruitment and retention rates and accelerate the drug development process, all while limiting the intrusiveness on patients as much as possible. Now we want to share our expertise with you.

Register for this webinar to hear the experts from MRN share the key considerations around implementing technology and technological elements within clinical trials, their recommendations on the best practices for integrating new systems and technologies, as well as what the future looks like when it comes to technology and decentralized trials.

Our focus is supporting clinical research delivery, by helping patients participate in trials while remaining in their communities, wherever they live around the world. We aim to reduce the inconvenience and disruption of visits to investigator sites as much as feasible, by reducing the number of those visits. When visits need to be undertaken we work to make the process as efficient and convenient as possible. We enhance patient enrolment, recruitment and retention.

As the largest international provider of specialist community clinical trial support, our services set the benchmarks for high-quality and innovative delivery. MRN is at the core of the clinical trial market and everything we do has always been focused on the patient.

Increased patient centricity is changing clinical research – This is, and always will be, a core part of Medical Research Network’s DNA.
