In episode 9, Patty chats with Tom Lemberg, the CEO of Curebase, a leading software platform for decentralized clinical trials. Tom’s platform takes medical research out of the traditional academic setting and brings it to patients everywhere so that they can participate at home and with their own doctors. The model dramatically accelerates the pace of research while expanding diversity and increasing equal access to ground-breaking medicines. The platform guides patients through the entire clinical trial and reinvents clinical trial software for a model that puts patients first and uses real-world health data. Much like what Checkable Medical is doing by creating a company that allows patients to get care from wherever they live and eliminate the unnecessary roadblocks in getting the right care at the right time.
