New Research: Patient Data Collection Concerns in Pandemic Environment

New Research: Patient Data Collection Concerns in Pandemic Environment


The COVID-19 pandemic has - without warning - turned clinical operations on its head, forcing the clinical research industry to re-evaluate how to manage clinical trials. In an instant, physical access to patients across the globe ceased to be an option and the impact on data collection and patient monitoring has been significant.

In this new environment, many organizations have accelerated their plans to shift to a decentralized clinical trial model. With this transition comes many benefits and challenges, and begs the question: are clinical development organizations prepared for this paradigm shift?

Oracle Health Sciences, in partnership with Informa Research sought to gather insight on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on clinical data collection and clinical operations by conducting an industry-wide survey. The survey reveals the depth of the pandemic’s impact on clinical trials and reveals industry leaders’ future predictions for clinical development beyond 2020.


  • Hear research results from a recent global, industry-wide survey on data collection in the pandemic environment.
  • Learn how your peers are adapting to clinical data collection in a pandemic situation.
  • Understand the regulatory challenges and concerns regarding remote data collection.
  • Learn ways for clinical operation readiness in this new world.


All levels are welcome to join as this will be a research-data driven discussion, with time for Q&A. Typically, we see Director and above from Clinical Operations, Data Management, and Innovations, and due to a focus on regulations, Regulatory Heads.


Participants will learn how their peers are handling data collection in the pandemic environment, specifically, what their concerns are and the tactics they are using to manage it.
