Longboat Virtual Visits allows physicians and nurses to conduct secure and private video visits with their clinical trial patients. The solution enables sponsor companies to further their efforts in designing protocols and decentralized trials using entirely virtual visits or a hybrid of face-to-face and remote visit methodologies. The Virtual Visit feature combines visit-specific instructions within the video visit interface to provide sites with a powerful productivity tool, contributing to improved protocol compliance and a better patient experience.
Health information is held to the highest security standards so embedding this capability within the Longboat environment ensures that patients can continue their involvement in leading-edge research remotely while not compromising their data security.
Contending with worries around their condition, and concerns in participating in a clinical trial, patients now have the added burden of interrupted visit schedules and treatment. Virtual Visits help to facilitate an existing schedule, and enable comforting face-to-face contact with their physician.
To optimize the chances of seeing a robust effect, clinical studies must retain patients. The burden associated with attending clinical trial visits has downstream implications for patient retention.
Trial participation can also include lost days from work for patients, pass-through travel costs for sponsors and strain on patients and their caregivers to devote time and energy to participate.
