Delve Health Provides the Technology Platform to Design Clinical Trials to Fit a Patient’s Lifestyle

—Not the Other Way Around
A significant number of companies announced delays and cancellations to planned and on-going clinical trials because of COVID-19 lockdowns and social distancing measures. There was a peak of 1,265 trials paused or indefinitely delayed in June 2020—impacting nearly 1,000 companies. Disruptions included delayed initiation or complete withdrawal of planned trials, as well as suspended enrollment or cancellation of on-going trials. The number of disrupted trials has been falling slowly since June 2020, with most current disruptions due to other factors, such as slow enrollment.

The Rise of eConsent Forms and its Impact on Patient Recruitment

Informed consent is one of the founding principles of research ethics. Its intent is that human participants can partake in medical research freely (i.e., voluntarily) with full information about what it means for them to take part; and, that they give consent before they participate in the clinical research study. Electronic consent (eConsent), also known as electronic informed consent (eIC), is a method of obtaining informed consent through the use of an electronic system instead of a paper consent form. Technology solutions, like Delve Health’s Clinical StudyPal app, allow for a digital consent process that potential study participants

Delivering Devices and Safely Collecting Real-World Data (RWD)

Can we say something more around why we are focusing on collecting raw data from Wearables? Wearables are being implemented in more and more clinical trials, and gaining steam in the healthcare world at-large. Deloitte predicts that 320 million consumer health and wellness wearable devices will ship worldwide in 2022. These devices enable a clinical study team to monitor their patients’ various health metrics, like daily steps, sleep quality, and heart rate, increasing patient compliance and retention. Delve Health offers a customizable technology solution to researchers and providers, opening up a whole new world of possibilities for data captured by

Are Wearables a Fade OR Are They Our Future?

Wearables in clinical research is a “hot topic” and all the “buzz.” While many people feel it will propel the clinical research enterprise into the future, critics are sounding the alarm bells citing concerns of data privacy and AI technology in general. Whether we’re discussing smartwatches and fitness trackers to VR headsets, smart rings, smart glasses, and whatever else is on the horizon—there is no doubt that consumers have widely adopted wearables. Due of that wide-spread acceptance into our daily lives, wearables are changing how consumers communicate, monitor, and share information. Wearables in the Current Marketplace Wearable devices, in general

What is eConsent

Defining eConsent in Clinical Trials The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has defined electronic informed consent (eConsent) in clinical trials as “the use of electronic systems and processes that may employ multiple electronic media, including text, graphics, audio, video, podcasts, passive and interactive websites, biological recognition devices, and card readers, to convey information related to the study to obtain and document informed consent.” How does eConsent Work in Clinical Trials? Delve Health’s Clinical StudyPal is a customizable solution that can be integrated into virtually any system or wearable device. Our platform is web-based and offers eConsent, in addition to

Opportunities In Transforming Clinical Research In The US

Clinical trials are essential for the development of new drugs and treatments. The goal of clinical trials is to find better ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases. Clinical trials help researchers learn more about a disease and how best to treat it. In the United States, there are many challenges in conducting clinical trials. However, the country is making progress in addressing these challenges. In this blog post, we will discuss the challenges and opportunities in transforming clinical research in the USA. What are clinical trials and why do we need them? Clinical trials are research studies in which
