Decentralized Trials and Telemedicine Research Accelerated During COVID-19 Pandemic


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/29/2021 -- While the first sign of the pandemic in many industries was an increase in activity, in the world of R&D jobs in pharma it was when nothing happened at all. The usual supply of clinical data simply disappeared as lockdowns forced people to stay at home and made normal structures and circumstances impossible. 40% of life sciences companies had to delay or cancel a study as a result of the conditions that were triggered by the pandemic and this has forced a rethink in terms of the way that clinical studies happen going forwards. The industry has now been forced to accept that disruption could well be the norm and, even though most research has now resumed, it's clear that there is no such thing as a return to the old normal. Decentralized trials and telemedicine really took off during the pandemic and many businesses have continued these practices even as the world has opened up once again, so much so that they could be the foundation for life sciences R&D going forward.
