Taking Clinical Trials Home, a Way to Simplify and Enhance Clinical Research

The clinical trials system is broken and needs to be fixed in a way that’s simpler for everyone involved. In this episode, Ivan Jarry, co-founder, and CEO at ObvioHealth talks about using digital technology to tackle the inefficiencies in healthcare clinical research, decentralizing clinical trials with an easy and engaging patient-centric app. Ivan argues healthcare and clinical research space is a very antiquated, regulated industry and details how ObvioHealth is helping run studies more efficiently taking the processes directly to participants at home through technology.
