About the Company
Apex Mobile Clinical Research is an innovative new company providing rapid and scalable decentralized clinical trial solutions and services to underserved communities. Most physicians don’t offer clinical research to their patients due to lack of infrastructure and cost, and patients don’t participate because of lack of access, or they don’t want to leave their trusted physician. Because of these barriers, 97% of physicians and patients are currently lost to clinical research. At Apex Mobile, we enable site set-up and supplement existing resources so that physicians can conduct clinical trials, offer state of the art care options to their patients, and reach broad and diverse trial participant, patient populations.
Using technology and home visits by our nurses and other medical professionals, the Apex Mobile decentralized model makes participation in clinical research exceedingly more accessible for providers and for their patients, while keeping the trusted patient-provider relationship intact. By placing patients at the center of the decentralized model, Apex positions the patient's home as the hub for clinical trial activities eliminating frequent study-related visits to clinics and hospitals.
