LABCORP OncologyThere is a gap between the number of patients needed to participate in new cancer trials and the number who give consent to take part. Decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) are helping to address this gap by increasing the reach of clinical studies beyond conventional research sites. DCTs provide an opportunity to remove some of the burdens associated with in-clinic visits, allowing participants to take part in trials from their own homes and/or community healthcare setting, with fewer visits to a hospital/trial site. Key to the delivery of DCTs is a suite of tools and technologies that support near real-time review of clinical data from multiple sources. This article looks at some of the technologies, tools and processes that can support more patient-centric oncology trials.
