Patient-Focused, Compassionate Clinical Trials
At Jus-Biotech, we recognize that clinical studies in the biotechnology sphere frequently involve patients with extensive, often systemic medical and genetic challenges that can present a family crisis. We ensure that our expert advisors -- who have decades of experience advancing therapeutic agents to market in multiple categories -- assist our clients in conducting compassionate investigatory studies that deeply engage patients and caregivers.
Jus-Biotech Facilitates Secure Communication
Our patented and unprecedented Jus-Biotech expert advisory and Apple-approved and Android-compatible technology platform gleans highly accurate data by advancing fully secure, timestamped, blockchain and permissions-based communication within a study.
Jus-Biotech ensures patient confidentiality is never compromised while enabling greater patient engagement than ever before across desktop, tablet and smartphone devices. We ensure accuracy by securely advancing communication between patients and clinicians, and clinicians and the C-suite, to provide an up-to-the-moment transparent 360-degree view of all activities and interactions within a study, leading to better patient communication, a more accurate data set and enterprise-wide decision-making. Further, our Open Forum enables patients and trial staff to pose questions and gain clarity on instructions and responsibilities leading to a more successful study result.
From the initial application through the pre-clinical stage, to the clinical trial phases and FDA approval, the Jus-Pharma app we created for use by our pharmaceutical and biotech clients alike optimizes ROI, preserves capital, protects investors and mitigates litigation and safety risks while advancing efficiency in communication. Jus-Pharma is also a network that tracks, audits, and stores all documents, data and communications associated with a clinical trial. It facilitates secure text/voice/video communication/digital and voice signatures utilizing blockchain features between executives, researchers and participants.
