The Health Care Blog: Cancer Centers Rebounding from COVID-19 Can Grow by Making the Most of New Technologies for Clinical Trials

“If AI-related technologies can help match real people to the unique needs of trials, doctors, nurses, and others can spend more time connecting one-to-one with potential trial participants, reaffirming the human connections that can be drowned out by paperwork and data input.” -The Health Care Blog

COVID-19 has taken devastating effects on cancer treatments and clinical trials. With people too nervous to leave home, the number of cancer screenings dropped by almost 90% in the peak of the pandemic. Many cancer centers are changing gears to focus on programs that will generate revenues for expansion or break, preventing permanent community center closures.

Clinical trials are costly, and patient-trial matching requires clinical coordinators, physician investigators, and research support staff to spend tedious hours combing through disjointed patient records. With new technology, however, cancer centers can optimize screening methods to save research teams critical time and effort. Patient-trial matching technology not only helps to predict and protect future revenue streams but also provide oncologists with viable and cutting-edge trial options for patients.
