Transforming Traditional Clinical Protocol into Virtual Study Designs

UBC offers an established virtual research, patient engagement and in-home nursing platform. We work with our clients to transform traditional clinical protocol into virtualized study designs. With our strong knowledge of how a pandemic impacts the ability to collect critical insights essential to successful studies, we educate our clients on solutions and strategies to incorporate remote and virtual technologies into their study design.

Our epidemiology, safety and clinical development experts perform rigorous assessments on each protocol to bring forward virtualization approaches as we understand every study, patient population, schedule of assessment or data set to support a regulatory filing is different.

Global Home Health Network Delivers High-Touch Patient Care

We have curated one of the deepest and widest home health nursing footprints to support our clients and have delivered over 560,000 home and injection care center visits since its inception. We have selectively assembled and established our leading global home health network by cultivating strong partnerships with only the best-in-class agencies through a robust credentialing and on-boarding process, monitoring in-process services and assessing the satisfaction and patient perspective post-visit. This ensures the superior quality management and oversight required to deliver high-touch care to your patients.

The UBC clinical nurse educators and robust network of skilled nurses are rapidly deployed to support clinical studies for sample collection, drug administration and routine assessments. Our skilled commercial nurse staff delivers quality and compassionate patient care, including routine and maintenance dosing and therapy administration to help patients start and stay on therapy with confidence and independence.

Our Solutions

In-Home Data Collection: Virtual Study Solutions

Transforming in-office patient visits to a virtual environment requires a robust and compliant technology platform with the following capabilities:

  • On-demand telehealth virtual study visits: Facilitate communications between site personnel and patients in a fully compliant virtual environment
  • Patient Generated Data collection (including ePRO/eCOA): Web-based device applications and wearables
  • Virtual assistant and text messaging platforms: Deliver study information and assistance for patients and caregivers through secure and compliant technology

Quality of Evidence Development: Remote Study Monitoring

With Clinical Research Associates (CRAs) having less access to many research centers, the essential functions of source document verification and data cleaning has increasingly been performed remotely.

  • Our technology platform enables sites to upload redacted source documents via secure channels for remote review.
  • Where possible, we are deploying EMR-enabled remote Source Document Verification solutions to allow the CRA read-only access to study participants’ medical records.

In-Home Administration of Injectable Therapies: Home Nursing Visits

A careful review of the project specific imperatives and data collection objectives may reveal that select visits are suitable to occur in the form of a home nursing visit. Our network of clinical nurses are project trained to perform lab sample collection, drug administration and routine assessments in patient homes in the U.S. and more than 60 countries worldwide.

Driving Patient Engagement: Telephonic & In-Home Care Coordination

As many physician practices are operating with limited hours and staff, we can ensure patients have reliable options to receive continued nursing services, whether on the phone or in person.

Best Practices for Conducting On-Site Visits

For visits that must continue to occur at the site due to complex assessments with specialized equipment and PI-administered treatment, we have developed a thorough set of best practices that provide guidance to sites to ensure visits are conducted in the safest manner possible to protect site staff and patients.
