Hubical creates and makes available to promoters and recruiters of a clinical trial a tailor-made digital information platform which is designed for patients and can be accessed from home before and after their sign up for a clinical trial.
Proper patient education and information is the key to a successful clinical trial
Alexandre Viau, maxillofacial surgeon
Emmanuel Viau, lawyer
The large amount of information that is necessary to enable a patient to provide an informed consent cannot be properly communicated during medical consultation or in written format nowadays.
Core notions such as the clinical trial process (protocol, duration) or the protection to which each patient is entitled (legal framework, on-going consent) are often misunderstood by patients.
This leads to : a prolonged recruitment phase, weakened clinical results, increased risks with regard to the use of the product, and in the end, an extended time-to-market.
