PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Medable Inc, the leading cloud platform for patient-centered drug development, experienced record growth in 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic drove demand for remote clinical trial technologies. By minimizing the need for in-person site visits, Medable customers have achieved unprecedented results – including 3X faster enrollment and over 90 percent retention rates.
Medable onboarded more than 50 new clients in 2020, as pharmaceutical, biotech, and clinical research organizations used Medable’s software to enable patients to participate in trials remotely — reducing their dependence on physical sites due to quarantines and social distancing. Decentralized trial adoption grew Medable revenues by more than 400 percent in 2020. Additionally, Medable launched five new products to support patient-centered research, and secured $118 million in total funding to accelerate digital and decentralized clinical trial adoption.
“COVID-19 accelerated patient-centered research by five years,” said Dr. Michelle Longmire, CEO and co-founder of Medable. “2021 will be marked by the democratization of access to research. Leveraging Medable, partners can provide remote access to new investigational medicines to patients worldwide. We are driving radical transformation in clinical trials through patient-centered technologies that remove traditional bottlenecks and transform key processes. In 2021, Medable will continue to drive the emergence of a global ecosystem that truly enables research anytime, anywhere and for every person.”
Digital and mobile technologies played a pivotal role for clinical trials in 2020, enabling the continuation of in-flight research efforts via remote care while also accelerating development of vaccines and therapeutics for COVID-19. Building on that experience, Medable executives will share lessons learned from 2020 and predictions for 2021, via five sessions at this week’s Fierce JPM Week 2021 and Digital Medicine & MedTech Showcase events:
