TrialStat News for April 2020
To our clients, partners, and industry friends,

There is no doubt that we are in troubled times with COVID-19 dominating every aspect of our lives. This pandemic is prompting the clinical research sector to rapidly reinvent itself as we work to design and launch trials not only for a vaccine but other therapeutic treatment candidates, supportive medical devices and diagnostics, all while in the middle of a very challenging environment that is constantly evolving.

TrialStat Clients Begin First SARS-CoV-2 Studies
We are excited to announce the commencement of the first of many COVID-19 clinical studies using the TrialStat platform. These therapeutic trials will run in North America and take advantage of our multilingual EDC platform, randomization module, coding, and many more integrated features. Supporting our clients need for remote monitoring, TrialStat's EDC platform allows for the designation of non-clinical questions and forms with the ability to upload redacted PDF source documentation for remote review.

We are receiving many queries about how our services and solutions can best support new research projects or assist in improving ongoing clinical operations as many studies flex toward a more virtual and risk-based approach. We welcome the opportunity to talk to you about how our technology solutions enable teams to easily navigate their eClinical and data management requirements during this challenging time.
