The resources below were developed by the Patient Technology Initiative as part of their mission to facilitate and accelerate the industry’s progression towards a future where patients have access to innovative technologies that enhance the patient experience and reduce patient burden in clinical trials.
Patient Technology Materials
Patient-facing digital technologies (also called “Patient Technology”) have the potential to serve a variety of functions in clinical trials, such as capturing clinical endpoints, engaging patients, and facilitating remote study conduct. However, these technologies are not yet accepted as mainstream research tools, and the opportunities, challenges, and facilitators associated with their implementation in clinical trials have not been fully characterized. In order to understand the factors affecting PT adoption, the TransCelerate Patient Technology Initiative conducted a series of surveys, interviews, and focus groups with approximately 600 subject matter experts (SMEs), including pharmaceutical company representatives, clinical trial investigators at a number of trial sites worldwide, and clinical trial participants.
