Clinical trial participation – from the comfort of home

In the age of Amazon Prime, grocery delivery, and, yep, even sock delivery subscriptions, it’s getting easier and easier to never leave the house. And it’s even more annoying when you do have to venture out and interact with other human beings, amirite? Luckily for us hermits, PAREXEL and Sanofi aim to make it easier to participate in clinical trials from the comfort of your Lazy Boy. The two companies are launching a pilot study to test the medical and scientific viability of wearable devices in clinical trials using PAREXEL’s patient sensor solution. The goals are to make things easier on patients and sites, collect a whole bunch of data, and reduce costs all the way around. High five for progress!
