VirTrial offers free virtual training and certificate program

VirTrial has announced a training and certificate program to help research sites prepare for hybrid clinical trials which include a combination of virtual and in-person visits, the company said.

The program is free to all Society for Clinical Research Sites (SCRS) member sites domestically and abroad.

VirTrial is a telehealth platform provider that enables virtual visits to reduce the burden on patients and improve efficiencies for sites. The platform is available for use on any device, including patients´ personal devices (Apple, Android, tablet and/or computer) and will work for any research site. By combining video, text, and email, clinical trial sites can easily address specific patient and study needs in a secure environment.

The new training program includes four brief modules sites will complete in order to become certified as Virtual Trial Capable. Once completed, sites will receive a Virtual Trial Capable Certificate and badge which can be used to display to sponsors and CROs. As part of the program, VirTrial will regularly provide sponsors and CROs with a list of Virtual Trial Capable sites.

VirTrial is a technology company using a stable, long-standing telehealth platform to transform the clinical trials industry. The platform offers a patient management program that combines video, text, and email allowing pharmaceutical companies and CROs to create patient centric trials by replacing some study visits with virtual visits.
