What Is The Future
of Clinical Monitoring?

How will research professionals conduct clinical monitoring in the future? IMARC Research surveyed over 100 monitors, research coordinators, project managers, and others to find out how they’ve adopted new processes one year into the pandemic. Here’s what we found.

Researchers have embraced remote monitoring…

Prior to the pandemic

67%
say they never or rarely conducted remote monitoring visits

One year after the pandemic

60%
say they frequently do
30%
do sometimes

..But not without challenges.

The 3 most pressing concerns:

file-sharing
Managing electronic file-sharing and data
(40%)
Ensuring compliance
Ensuring compliance
(35%)
Training
Training their team to use new technology
(14%)

Remote monitoring can impact data quality…

30
say overall data quality has somewhat decreased
50
say remote monitoring had no impact on quality
15
say quality has somewhat increased

But it has little to no impact on patient safety.

60%
say they saw no noticeable impact
13%
say it’s slightly less effective at ensuring safety
12%
say it’s significantly less effective

Most believe it’s more cost-effective…

32
say it somewhat decreased costs
22
say it significantly decreased costs
25
say it had no impact on costs
33%
say remote monitoring significantly increases prep time
27%
say it significantly increases the time spent conducting visits

The bottom Line?

Most want a balance between remote and on-site activities.

73% believe a hybrid approach is the best way to move forward
