As technology continues to advance at an increasingly rapid pace, the clinical research industry has been more conservative in the adoption of new tools and innovations. However, mass adoption of technologies in favor of the transformative value proposition that such advances provide ultimately occurs. EDC, is the foremost example of a transformative technology that took 20 years to evolve, from a concept in the late 1980’s into the standard approach for collecting patient CRF data today. EDC has delivered tremendous value to research organizations by enabling a more accelerated review of higher-quality data, accompanied by significant resource efficiencies and cost reductions.

Another more recent example of an innovation that stands to revolutionize clinical trial processes is digital health technologies. These technologies, including wearable fitness devices, in-home clinical-grade devices, sensors and health applications, collect meaningful patient-generated health data (PGHD) directly from trial participants at home and as they go about their daily activities. Today, sponsors are beginning to utilize digital health technologies to enable sponsors to streamline subject recruitment, remote patient monitoring, medication adherence and post-marketing research. However, given the transformative potential that these devices provide for clinical research and the robust infrastructure and services already in place to enable effective collection and management of PGHD, broader adoption of digital health technologies is occurring quickly.
