How will you manage clinical trials and sites remotely?

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented immediate and unique challenges for clinical trials due to social distancing, travel restrictions, and clinic/hospital visit limitations. ScienceMedia's SMi Trial helps sponsors and CROs transition to online clinical trial management by facilitating global communication and monitoring of sites, circulating protocol training and study updates, and deploying comprehension assessments to identify the high-risk areas of your trials without requiring on-site visits.

SMi Trial also enables virtual IMs and SIVs through distance learning to prepare clinical site staff for the reinstatement of suspended trials once the current restrictions are lifted.

The Pillars of SMi Trial

Targeted Clinical Risk Mitigation

Our clinical experts work with you to identify high-risk areas of your protocol to develop online targeted training and assessments. Real-time analytics provide visibility into training comprehension in order to identify knowledge gaps before they lead to unplanned protocol deviations.

Improve the Power of Your Clinical Data

The prevention of unplanned deviations ensures the reliability of your clinical data and minimizes the loss of usable subject data, resulting in decreased operational costs and expedited time-to-market for life-saving therapies.


Elevated Clinical Competency

Standardize site performance and minimize the impact of staff turnover with just-in-time therapeutic and protocol-specific training targeted to high-risk areas in your trials.

SMi Trial Results

  • Reduce deviation rates
  • Save hundreds of thousands of dollars in downstream monitoring
  • Lower overall subject costs
  • Expedite time-to-market

"SMi Trial enabled us to convey and reinforce specific objectives for our complex program. The training modules provided our team foundational knowledge and details about study endpoints and objectives, which could not be easily drawn from the protocol, IB, or other core documents."
