A recent study found that site personnel believes that eConsent can help them improve the recruitment and retention of subjects which is critical to the success of clinical trials.
It provided tips for the adoption of eConsent in clinical trials.
These include understanding the execution of study start-up in terms of informed consent and the impact of eConsent on study procedures and related processes.
The next step is identifying information that can be automated by an eConsent solution and ensuring that study staff and participants are properly trained before using eConsent technology.

It is also important to ensure the protection of clinical trial subjects’ personal and health information.
