Decentralized Clinical Trials (DCT) have dramatically increased in importance over the past 2 years (driven in no small part by the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic). Learn how DCTs can enhance compliance, prevent data loss, aid in recruitment, and promote better patient care.

Remote patient monitoring (RPM) can be extremely helpful in healthcare settings, allowing physicians and nurses to provide care directly to the patient from the comfort of their own homes for an extended period of time. However, due to misconceptions surrounding prior RPM installations and older technologies, they are not as widely adopted as expected. Emmet Seibels breaks down 3 common misconceptions.

Many of us have experienced the vast growth of telehealth and telemedicine over the past few years. Verustat’s COO, Lynda Bolan, and VP of Operations, Samantha Werner, sat down with Authority Magazine to discuss best practices for when your patients are not physically in front of you.

Keeping the human element in remote patient monitoring is critical to its success. Dr. Sahgal, founder and CMO of
Essen Health Care out of Bronx, NY, noted in his interview with mHealthIntelligence the importance of our care coordinators.

“It’s human engagement,” Sahgal said. “You don’t have robotic intervention or calls. [The] care management team actually is able to call and talk to the patient.”

Verustat is in a position to start collecting data on the impact of its remote patient monitoring solution on health care costs now that it has more than 45 physician groups signed on, says Emmet Seibels, President and Co-Founder of Verustat. With physicians stretched thin, Verustat is also in the process of enhancing its team of care coordinators, which has completed 142,000 calls in the past 14 months, with registered nurses, Seibels says.

“The launch of Verustat’s DCT platforms marks an important evolution in our pursuit to modernize the way clinical trials are conducted for the life science industry,” said Andy Maloy, senior vice president of technology and clinical trials at Verustat. “We are excited to have built this custom solution that services numerous DCT needs and will improve the overall experience for all parties.”
