CARY, N.C. and NEW YORK, March 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- THREAD, an innovative technology and service provider that enables decentralized clinical research, and Lokavant, a leading clinical trial intelligence company, today announced a partnership to bring businesses operating decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) advanced analytics and actionable insights. Together, sponsors receive the unique ability to proactively benchmark trial operational performance against a Lokavant data set of more than >2,000 clinical trials, resulting in increased visibility into trial performance and KPIs that improve outcomes and enhance the designs of future DCTs.

"We are excited to pair Lokavant's unmatched trial insights with THREAD to provide the first data-driven solution focused on improving the performance of decentralized clinical trials," said John Reites, CEO of THREAD. "This partnership represents THREAD's commitment to providing differentiated value, quality and performance as we advance global decentralized clinical trial approaches by introducing actionable data."

Lokavant Insight highlights elements of clinical trial execution through Key Risk Indicators (KRIs) of study health across historical and ongoing clinical trials. This ensures that THREAD users can dynamically compare trial performance against aggregate and current industry standards, optimizing study planning and execution. Through this capability, researchers gain unprecedented transparency and an ability to make informed decisions in the management of DCTs utilizing THREAD.

"Partnering with THREAD expands Lokavant's ability to offer advanced insights from diverse data sources for the widest range of clinical trial types," said Stephanie Lee Griffin, Chief Business Officer of Lokavant. "We're excited that this partnership offers the industry unprecedented insights and visibility as DCT approaches continue to be rapidly adopted."
