The clinical trial management process is due for significant shifts, and the current pandemic exacerbates the need for innovative solutions.
Notwithstanding the current turmoil, most pharmaceutical companies are no longer conducting clinical trials that require people to visit a brick-and-mortar facility, keeping in mind that patient safety is critical. Additionally, the process of remote management or virtual trials is fundamentally changing. Data integrity issues have also cropped up as the recent retraction of the Hydroxychloroquine study in Lancet and NEJM.
Consequently, Blockchain as a technology can play a significant role in increasing the pace and cutting costs dramatically. In this webinar, Rama Rao, Founder, and CEO of Bloqcube will discuss how Blockchain can enable and enhance remote clinical trials.
In addition, he will also talk about shifting priorities for investment houses and their strategies. VC funds now want to invest more with companies developing products in the health-tech space. Rama will show how the Covid-19 pandemic is not a tsunami that wipes away companies but a tailwind that will propel them to success
