Caring through COVID-19

Keeping patients safe

Keeping patients safe

In March, we made the difficult decision to pause new patient recruitment into ongoing clinical studies and to postpone the launch of any new studies. Our previous technology transformation implementation efforts allowed us to continue selected trials remotely, thanks to existing telehealth platforms, electronic consent procedures, and already-established home visits from healthcare professionals. This decentralized approach to clinical studies kept existing patients enrolled in ongoing studies safe and reassured, while also relieving the burden on physicians and frontline medical staff who understandably had other urgent priorities. While clinical trial recruitment and new studies have since restarted, we are continuing to closely monitor any impact of COVID-19 on these activities and remain at the ready to adapt or pause as necessary.
