Remote Computerized Assessments

Clinical trial teams need testing solutions they can rely on to be effective and equivalent when deployed outside of the clinical site. The Cogstate battery has been utilized for in-clinic, supervised settings and remote settings where assessment may be supervised or unsupervised. The optimal approach depends on the nature of the patient population, the test paradigm, and the type of devices utilized.

Remote Conventional Assessments

Many paper-and-pencil cognitive assessments—in traditional or eCOA format—can still be viable to conduct remotely. A key consideration is the type of clinical outcome assessment (COA) used, as clinician interviews, for example, present fewer challenges and require fewer adaptions than some performance-based outcomes. Cogstate has worked on delivery of multiple COAs for ‘remote-supervised’ assessment and can share lessons learned and feasible adaptations to help your research progress.
