Decentralized Clinical Trials

The Future of Medicine Starts at Home

The traditional clinical trial model is shifting. To get much needed therapies to patients faster, researchers need to reach a more diverse set of patients where they are: at home. Firma’s home trial services help sites and sponsors overcome logistical challenges to reach the right patient for the right target disease at the right time. 

Minimize Patient Burden.
Maximize Trial Efficiency.​

Inconvenient site locations, schedule conflicts, logistical concerns, financial constraints, and missed visits all lead to patient dropout and high non-compliance rates. Home trial visits are a key decentralized clinical trial strategy that can increase trial participation of eligible and diverse patients – regardless of study duration, frequency of visits, disease state or distance to study site.​

Facilitating Telehealth

Firma provides the processes, tools, and training required for successful telehealth visits, saving you time and money.  

Reducing Patient Burden 

It’s important to make sure your patient participants have options. Bring the clinical trial to the patient, whether 100% decentralized or through a hybrid model.

Improving Site Bandwidth

Firma partners with sites by taking on any or all protocol visits, helping sites optimize their time, focus on other important tasks, and reduce turnover.

Decentralized Clinical Trial Support for Your Unique Study Protocol

Conducting protocol visits in homes or other decentralized locations expands your clinical trials to individuals who otherwise may not have been able to participate. Home trial visits can be used to perform a variety of services required by your study protocol.
