IoT LIFE SCIENCES AND HEALTHCARE
As COVID-19 brings in its wake country-wide lockdowns and supply chain disruptions, the life sciences and healthcare industry is struggling to find a cure for its severely affected ongoing clinical trials.
Travel restrictions on trial patients and medical personnel, and increased chances of infection at medical centers, have reduced physical interactions, resulting in a lack of critical patient information and readily available data. This has severely impacted regulatory submissions, registrations, and entry of cures or vaccines into the market.
Meanwhile, clinics and hospitals are seeing increasing workloads and occupancy as COVID-19 cases continue to rise every day – thus putting premises, patients and medical personnel at an increased risk of exposure.
Continuity and integrity of insights collected from clinical trials assume massive importance in deciding outcomes. These expensive trials require constant patient-physician interaction as the effects of these drugs on patients are closely monitored throughout the study period. On the other hand, to ensure that the risk of exposure and contagion for medical personnel and patients is contained, monitoring these premises round-the-clock and optimizing operations according to occupancy, assumes vital importance.
The Decentralized Clinical Trials (DCT) solution by IoT WoRKSTM and Medable is modeled on ‘Direct to Patient’ technology, leveraging wearables and home-based physiological devices for collecting patient insights remotely.
DCT reimagines the clinical trials framework and makes patient-enrolment, real-time collection, operational monitoring, analysis of insights, and patient-physician interaction possible amid the COVID-19 restrictions.
The Live Social Distancing Monitoring (LSDM) solution combines radar sensors, AI models and easily retrofittable distributed architecture, that can provide real-time locational insights on movement, identify potential hotspots, generate alerts that can help hospitals and clinics proactively optimize their operations, monitor workloads and ensure disease free premises.
The DCT solution was operationalized in a COVID-19 impacted country in less than six days, helping pharma companies reduce study timelines by ~50%.
There are 30+ global decentralized trials underway, and more than 1 million patients have been onboarded on the platform.
LSDM solution enables the healthcare industry to automate social distancing – reimagining zero-contact premises and maintaining business continuity – and most importantly, patient and medical personnel safety – thus directly impacting lives and minimizing the human cost.
The rapidly deployable solutions are helping the healthcare industry fightback against the COVID-19 pandemic by utilizing smart at scale, and ensuring zero-contact, secure operations and premises.
