RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Sept. 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Science 37 announced today that it has been recognized in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Life Science Clinical Development, 2023. As stated by Gartner, “This Hype Cycle explores innovative technologies that are specifically relevant to life science clinical development programs in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, diagnostics, medical device, research institutions, and contract research sectors.”
“We are honored to be recognized in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Digital Trials,” said David Coman, Chief Executive Officer at Science 37. “Innovation is core to our model, as we continue to deliver faster, more inclusive, patient-friendly clinical research.”
According to the Gartner report, “Digital trials will transform the trial process, leading to improved quality, reduced cost and reduced trial cycle time. Initial gains include improvement in patient experience, completion rate, medication adherence and trial participation.” The report further states “We anticipate digital trials to move faster, with greater ease in finding and attracting subjects and optimizing existing data-cleaning processes. Digital trials will put harder-to-measure disease conditions within reach and make plain to researchers more subtle indicators of health with digital wearables, dramatically impacting well-being.”
Science 37 is seeing the impact of decentralized clinical trials across therapeutic areas, delivering faster enrollment, improved retention rates, and a better participant experience, based on the Company’s ability to find and enroll participants regardless of location. From global pharmaceutical companies to emerging biopharma companies, adoption is also accelerating, particularly in light of the recent U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) draft guidance on Decentralized Clinical Trials which enables new modalities for data collection.
Science 37’s unique approach is a virtual site, or MetasiteTM, which enables patients to participate in trials from the comfort of their homes. With investigator oversight, the Metasite removes boundaries and enhances the experience with flexible telemedicine visits, remote data capture, and convenient scheduling times. Powered by a proprietary platform enabling eConsent, ePRO, telemedicine, scheduling, and wearable/device integration, the Metasite drives unified study orchestration, greater compliance, and high-quality data—reaching patients wherever they are.
