The current situation puts a bright light on the digitalization deficiencies of our health system. As the fight against COVID-19 continues, health organizations must find new ways of working. Unprecedented speed in putting digital capabilities and an agile mindset in place is now required to adapt efficiently and deliver valuable solutions – not only for the actual crisis. Zühlke takes a leading role in contributing to these solutions, being it by developing a COVID-19 tracing app or generally speaking by encouraging and enabling the usage of the latest digital technologies in the pharmaceutical industry.

Digital Technologies
can help you to

1. Accelerate clinical trials

Accelerate clinical trials

Only 5% of all patients participate in clinical studies – and 30% of those participants drop out before all data is collected by the research group. This situation can be improved with the help of digital technologies.

With its UX and CX team, Zühlke can help you develop digital solutions that make participating in clinical trials easier while also ensuring a reliable trial setup and minimizing dropouts through providing an easy to use and inspiring frontend. With our experience in the handling and processing of data, we will support you in choosing an architecture for your clinical trial setups that is both easy to maintain and effortless. Embrace the “if you fail, fail fast” mentality and put your product to the test at the earliest possible stage – with the help of Zühlke experts.

2. Connect with patients

The share of clinical data with the pharmaceutical industry is hampered by a lack of trust along the society. Putting the patient into the center of all activities by giving them the control over their own data and offering improved patient outcomes with digital applications can help to build valuable relationships.
