Understanding Decentralized Clinical Trials

Gain a better understanding of decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) by listening to Veristat’s Shaheen Limbada, Executive Vice President of Global Clinical Operations, as he defines DCTs, describes use cases, and the benefits they offer. 


How to Make a Decentralized Trial Toolbox Work?

A decentralized clinical trial is more complicated than sending a traveling nurse to visit a patient at their home. Our comprehensive and full-service approach to virtual clinical trial conduct integrates all the processes and technologies necessary for success. We coordinate all communication channels between patients, sites, nurses, labs, and trial monitors.


Virtual clinical trial success requires an integrated approach:

Establish Digital Patient Recruitment/Retention Methodologies

  • Developing a digital marketing and branding strategies for patient recruitment and education
  • Mobilizing physician-staffed call center to qualify and register patients
  • Managing communication channels between the site, at-home nurse, patient, and other integrated vendors/technologies
Virtual Clinical Trials At-Home Patient Visits


Deploy At-Home Patient Visits

  • Performing study protocol requirements by traveling nurses. A nurse conducts the at-home patient visits as outlined by the study protocol
  • Managing logistics differently - Proven logistics management such as sending supplies to the patient instead of site, facilitating lab work, etc.
  • Collecting source data at home
Veristat Virtual Clinical Trials Using Telemedicine


Launch Virtual Patient Interactions 

  • Connecting patients and treating physicians through Telemedicine (video meetings)
  • Utilizing ePRO, eSource,  and eConsent capabilities that integrate with EDC
  • Monitoring traditional sites and virtual sites remotely
