Virtual Studies

Decentralized study solutions to reach participants where they are and keep your study on track

Digital technologies have seen increasing acceptance among global stakeholders and the COVID-19 pandemic has only increased this trend and placed a spotlight on the necessity of these tools. Thankfully, there is also an increasing spectrum of validated systems and devices to gather endpoints for clinical trials across all therapeutic areas.

TFS has virtual study expertise in all phases of clinical trials, non-interventional studies, and investigator-initiated studies. Real-world evidence studies are ideally suited for virtual or decentralized studies due to their typically large number of geographically dispersed participants and longer observation periods.
