The Hawthorne Effect
conducts hospital-level clinical trials in the comfort of a patient's home. The company's team of licensed healthcare professionals (called Hawthorne Heroes) conduct in-person and virtual assessments to overcome previous barriers to completion for traditional, site-based trials nationwide and globally.
According to a spokesperson, Hawthorne Effect supports medical device manufacturers by offering them "the only decentralized clinical trial platform that enables 100% in-window study visits for trial participants of any complexity, including screening, enrollment, study endpoint, and longitudinal and follow-up. Manufacturers that are going through the clinical trial process are able to leverage Hawthorne's digital clinical trial platform and the HawthorneHero network to conduct virtual or in-home clinical follow-up including complex ultrasound and echo imaging, physical and functional assessments, lab and specimen collections, etc.
HawthorneHeroes are equipped with connected devices that allow for real-time data collection via Hawthorne Effect's proprietary cloud platform. Data collected is automatically integrated with partner systems to produce better data over longer periods of time.
