Medable Inc., the software provider for decentralized clinical trials, has announced general availability of Medable TeleConsent, a new product that enables fully remote informed consent and re-consent for clinical trials. Unlike traditional eConsent products that require both patient and investigator to be physically present together in the clinic, Medable TeleConsent allows patients, doctors, nurses, and clinical trial staff all to connect and sign remotely from any location.
TeleConsent also aims to improve patient knowledge and comprehension by providing medical information in visual and multimedia formats, which patients can review in depth together with family members and caregivers. They can then engage visually with their physician to sign consent forms digitally from the comfort of their home or local clinic.
Medable TeleConsent is especially critical in the COVID-19 environment, where many patients are staying home to avoid social interaction and minimize exposure. Sites and sponsors can now screen, enroll and consent study participants without meeting in person, taking advantage of Medable’s TeleVisit application to conduct personalized interactions that improve patient understanding. TeleConsent can also be used for re-consenting patients for any future changes that may happen in a clinical trial.
Available immediately, Medable TeleConsent is designed to be flexible, so the features can adapt to local regulatory, site and patient-preferred workflows.
