Estimated read time 2 min read

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a serious impact on the medical industry, particularly on clinical trials. Even though the clinical trials are always going on, the COVID-19 Pandemic seriously impacted their progress.

These serious conditions forced the researchers to adopt new ways of conducting the trials and keep conducting trials to test groundbreaking medicines and vaccines for the people. If you are curious about which ways the researchers approached conducting the trials, then you will find everything in this post.

#1 – Telemedicine

As everyone has to adhere to the isolation policy to avoid the spread of CoronaVirus, the researchers and doctors had to adopt Telemedicine and video conferencing to connect with the participants and other patients. Fortunately, telemedicine has helped researchers to connect with patients and participants to provide them with medical advice, provide medicine, and monitor their health vitals.

#2 – Health Monitoring Devices

The use of portable and wireless health monitoring devices has helped researchers with a lot of things. With these devices like wearable tech, the researchers took the health vital details of the participants from any part of the world. This was quite beneficial in quick data collection and the researchers took immediate actions based on the health vitals of the participants.

#3 – Decentralized Trials

Back in the day, the trials used to happen in a centralized location like a dedicated Clinical trials hospital or location. With the arrival of COVID-19, the researchers had to communicate and collaborate with numerous doctors, and the decentralized trials method was adopted. This way, the researchers can collaborate with doctors from all around the world and conduct the trials in any part of the world.
