Telemedicine enables remote monitoring and interaction with patients to enhance care provision and treatment decisions. These tools used in routine care have enormous potential in providing ways to enable better monitoring of trial participants, and ease participation and engagement with less reliance on clinic visits. This session explores whether we are adequately primed to effectively use telemedicine. Where challenges exist what needs to be changed about the system or telemedicine approach to enable better usage? We will also consider how best telemedicine is used, or not, in clinical trials with reference to some practical examples. Are we driving to a world in which clinical care is not based on an in-person interaction with a health care provider?

Learning Objectives

Describe telemedicine, including the drivers for and barriers to its use in clinical trials and care.
