The organisation of clinical trials is increasingly complex, time-consuming and costly. Patient recruitment is more difficult due to geographical location. With decentralized clinical trials, patients benefit from additional comfort compared to traditional clinical trials since all care is carried out at home.
Without geographical constraints, patient recruitment will therefore be faster and the geographical area will be wider, making it possible for people with special needs and busy schedules to participate in a clinical trial.
Patient retention and engagement will increase as will patient recruitment due to the convenience of decentralized clinical trials, which limit the risk of missed appointments and therefore increase patient retention in the study.
