One of the biggest challenges in bringing a new drug to market is recruiting and retaining patients to participate in the FDA-required clinical trials.
Most trials require patients to travel to a brick-and-mortar site, which can be a burden. On top of that, 30% of patients are likely to drop out before the trial is over.
Jeeva Informatics — a RAMP startup participating in our Spring 2021 Health & Life Sciences Cohort — seeks to solve this with a technology that helps pharmaceutical companies navigate these challenges.
Led by founder and CEO Harsha Rajasimha and director of business development Sharlene Brown, Jeeva’s cloud-based software reduces patient recruitment time and drop-out rates, and by facilitating trials at a patient’s home, increases compliance by reducing the traditional travel burden.
