ScienceMedia Launches SMi TrialD: The World’s First Mobile Education Platform for Decentralized Clinical Trials

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ScienceMedia, the leader in life science and clinical trial education and training, has once again demonstrated its commitment to innovation. In the wake of COVID ScienceMedia launched SMi TrialD, the world’s first mobile education and training platform specifically for decentralized and hybrid clinical trials.

Developed to minimize start-up timelines and ensure study integrity over the life of decentralized or hybrid trials, the pioneering SMi TrialD platform incorporates modules specifically designed to enhance the experience and contribution of patients and caregivers, home healthcare providers, investigative sites, and other study support roles. SMi TrialD’s content creators and writers have a collective 46 years of experience leading innovation in clinical trial support, including Product Director, Robert Geckeler, whose background in therapeutic development brings a hands-on user perspective to the platform’s focus.
