Advarra has announced new technology functionality to its solution, Longboat, an established platform used in more than 70 countries and by nearly 20,000 sites. It now features an online patient portal with a set of engagement tools including a document exchange that enables transparent collaboration between patients, sites, and sponsors or clinical research organizations (CROs) without adding technology burden.
Because the patient portal module is part of the same platform the site uses for essential document collection, training/learning management, study conduct enablement tools, and safety letter viewing and acknowledgement, sites are able to provide a more connected experience for their patients with this workflow.
"We've been listening to sites who are drowning in administrative tasks, repeatedly entering the same information, having to log into multiple systems or feeling out of the loop with direct communication between the sponsor and patient," said Elisa Cascade, chief product officer at Advarra in a press release. "A connected system with site, sponsor, CRO, and patient access provides visibility to all while preserving the site-patient relationship. This transparent collaboration in real time is a win for everyone involved in the study."
