uMotif and VirTrial Partner to Further Expand Decentralized Clinical Trial Capabilities

SCOTTSDALE, AZ, and LONDON, UK, 9 MARCH 2021VirTrial, the leading provider of telemedicine technology, and uMotif, the patient-centric data capture platform provider, are joining forces to combine their Decentralized Clinical Trial (DCT) technologies in one seamlessly integrated solution.

VirTrial's telemedicine platform provides robust and compliant video consultation capabilities to effortlessly connect site and patient. The uMotif platform's unique patient-friendly design empowers participants to submit large volumes of high quality eCOA/ePRO data via Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) or provisioned devices. Combining these two proven solutions enables sponsors and CROs to offer patients an easy and potentially fully remote trial experience, ultimately reducing patient burden and improving retention and adherence rates.

“By integrating the user-friendly data capture capabilities of the uMotif platform with the hybrid DCT capabilities of VirTrial's telemedicine platform, customers can recruit and retain a large and diverse patient population for their studies, even while some sites are closed for in-person visits," said Amanda Rangel, Executive VP of Virtual Trial Solutions at VirTrial. “We value uMotif's expertise in the clinical research industry and their approach to creating a patient-centric platform design that encourages use and secures critical trial data."

“Partnering with VirTrial further expands our decentralized trial approach. The addition of VirTrial's video functionality and its easy-to-use interface aligns with our focus on patient-centricity," said Bruce Hellman, CEO of uMotif, “The global pandemic has created high demand for remote data capture and virtual patient consultations, and we are seeing more of our customers adopt a decentralized model to ensure trials continue to operate."
