Why a Clinical Trial

Clinical Trials

Evidence that will be trusted by health care professionals is essential for the successful growth of a digital health application. Conducting a clinical trial is critical for showing its safety and efficacy. Without a clinical trial, a product may face increased regulatory scrutiny and barriers, a less compelling message for potential customers, and a decreased market impact.

Project Steps

Project Steps

There is no "typical" scope, timeline and budget for a clinical trial. Gathering accurate evidence may require anywhere from a few hundred to several thousand participants, with costs ranging from $15,000 to $1 million. Working with ACP and Frontier Science makes it easier to understand the process, collaborate on the goals, and be assured of a nimble and low-overhead project team.
