Appendix A Workshop Agenda Virtual Clinical Trials: Challenges and Opportunities November 28–29, 2018 National Academy of Sciences Building, Lecture Room 2101 Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20418 This workshop will examine opportunities for a modern, patient-centric clinical trials enterprise in light of digital health tools that could allow a virtual clinical trial for new medical product approval. Subject matter experts will engage in presentations and discussions to: • Highlight opportunities for systemic improvements to support virtual clinical trials, including: o Potential implications of virtual clinical trials for cost, speed, regulation, and knowledge generation and dissemination; and o Elements of an IT infrastructure, including integrating data from EHRs, mobile health applications, remote monitoring, virtual visits, and other relevant technologies with the capability to enhance the interface between clinicians and clinical trial participants. • Explore potential opportunities to use digital health tools to engage with patients and potential research participants, facilitate recruitment of participants to join a clinical trial, and maintain participation of diverse populations in the trial, including: o Collaborative approaches and incentives involving sponsors, researchers, patient advocacy groups, patients living with the particular condition being studied, and health systems—including regulations, quality measures and outcomes, or reimbursement strategies—to support the implementation of virtual clinical trials; and opportunities and challenges to enhancing equity in access and participation through virtual clinical trials.

Successful drug development relies on accurate and efficient clinical trials to deliver the best and most effective pharmaceuticals and clinical care to patients. However, the current model for clinical trials is outdated, inefficient and costly. Clinical trials are limited by small sample sizes that do not reflect variations among patients in the real world, financial burdens on participants, and slow processes, and these factors contribute to the disconnect between clinical research and clinical practice.

On November 28-29, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convened a workshop to investigate the current clinical trials system and explore the potential benefits and challenges of implementing virtual clinical trials as an enhanced alternative for the future. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
