Institutional Review Board (IRB) Process and Clinical Trial Management
Institutional Review Board (IRB) Process and Clinical Trial Management– Hashed is currently exploring “Decentralized IRB” opportunities with several pharma companies, thought-leaders and government advisors in the industry. This concept includes exploring opportunities to use a blockchain to create a single source of truth for IRB records across many trial sites and trial patients and cohorts. The value of this solution will be to improve the quality and reduce the administrative costs of multi-center trials. Currently this is extremely difficult because each site has their own identifiers, processes and timelines. The result will be a more trial-centric (instead of site-specific) process. Additionally, patient pool identification and patient consent is improved.
