ActiGraph Joins Decentralized Trials & Research Alliance
**PENSACOLA, FL, March 29, 2022 – ** ActiGraph, a leading provider of wearable technology-enabled scientific solutions for clinical trials and academic research, has joined the Decentralized Trials & Research Alliance (DTRA).
By enabling collaboration between stakeholders, the DTRA accelerates the adoption of patient-focused, decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) and research within life sciences and healthcare through education and research.
“Now is the time to share ideas and insights that will chart the future course of clinical trials, accelerating drug development and saving lives – and by taking part in the DTRA, ActiGraph is joining the many entities that are contributing to this mission,” said Craig Lipset, DTRA co-Chair. “We have a responsibility to advance the health of people with unmet medical needs, and by convening stakeholders, we can remove remaining barriers to adoption and impact patients today.”
ActiGraph has laid the groundwork for successful DCTs for over 20 years with patient-centric technology and scientific services that target the complexities of this trial format. The company’s remote monitoring ecosystem collects real-world data passively and continuously in the participant’s natural environment, without the need for in-person visits to the study site.
“The team at ActiGraph has had the pleasure of working closely with members of the DTRA for some time now, as our priorities are well aligned with their initiatives to define and promote best practices for technology and data strategy. It seems natural for us to finally be establishing an official partnership, which I see as an opportunity to further identify and remove barriers to DCT implementation,” says Jeremy Wyatt, ActiGraph Chief Executive Officer.
