DIA conducted a study in collaboration with the Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development (CSDD) and found that 65 percent of pharmaceutical and biotech companies surveyed are investing in patient-centric initiatives in drug development.
Reported benefits include: reduced screen failure rates, faster patient recruitment, improved subject retention, reduced protocol amendments, and a greater number of patient relevant endpoints. In the study, cost to conduct, ease of conducting, and reported impact were measured.
