SMi Trial™ "Closes the Loop" by Confronting One of the Biggest Problems in Clinical Trials


SAN DIEGO, July 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- ScienceMedia announces that SMi Trial's fully mobile, fully compatible, just-in-time solution closes the loop in clinical trials. Clinical trials are embedded in a clinical process of humans caring for humans. The complex communication between doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and patients all around the world makes closing the loop difficult. How do you communicate the process intervention or required change to a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, lab tech, or other staff members who are charged with a critical procedure, like sample collection, or patient injection? The answer is through the most commonly used pieces of technology that humans have: mobile devices.  

ScienceMedia's Chief Strategy Officer, David Turner, shares: "This is where the skills and experience of SMi Trial provide individualized, just-in-time microlearning, along with the ubiquity of modern, high-bandwidth mobile devices for personal information dissemination, solving the "last mile" problem in closed-loop control for clinical trial education." 

The European Medical Writers Association states that, particularly for studies of long duration, educational and engagement efforts should ideally be continued throughout the study to support retention of participants. Depending on the needs of the participant population and the study specifics, this may take the form of a comprehensive, multi-channel participant support and communications program, or may be a simple, automated text messaging service that sends motivational, informational, or reminder messages at set points in time.

Turner further states: "An educational program throughout the life of a clinical trial is paramount. SMi Trial's knowledge checks and analytical assessments are impactful to this point by providing an effective, auditable, efficient knowledge transfer solution for complex biomedical information. What I'm really trying to say here is that we don't just build the education so that it can be consumed, we ensure that it's being consumed by every single participant throughout the trial and tailored to their learning needs."
