Augmented Clinical Trials: The Role of New Trial Designs and the Internet of Medical Things

To drive better therapies to market faster and stay competitive, life sciences companies must evolve the clinical research process. Virtual and hybrid trial designs improve patient enrollment, compliance and experience. They lead to increased trial outcomes as patient adherence, clinical biomarkers and other areas of clinical benefit are more easily measured and analyzed during development. And they enable real-time decisions to protect patients against possible adverse events or to prevent risks of supply shortage. Machine learning and AI, supported by the Internet of Medical Things, are the analytics engine that enables this innovation in trial design by keeping researchers connected to patients and their data.
