Gastrointestinal Virtual Clinical Trials

Progressing gastrointestinal health through better data

Approximately 60 to 70 million people are affected by a digestive disease, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, putting an estimated $135 billion burden on our healthcare system. As gut health declines, the need for innovative therapies rises. ObvioHealth’s virtual study design and user-friendly app breaks down barriers to traditional GI research. Stool samples can be collected at home and sent to a lab. Patient reported data on taboo topics like flatulence and bowel movements is collected through the app without the need for face-to-face conversations with a physician. This provides higher compliance and more complete data. See below for more on ObvioHealth’s experience in GI clinical research.

Delivering Better Data for Your GI Study


Because our studies are virtual, we are not geographically tied to a site location. This allows us to recruit for our studies anywhere in the world. This often makes recruitment faster and less expensive. Symptoms of GI disorders can be physically uncomfortable, but also quite embarrassing to discuss with a doctor. Disorders that affect the bowel can create embarrassing face to face interactions which might prevent participation in traditional on-site research. Virtual trial models like our own alleviate the need to visit a doctor’s office to report symptoms or outcomes in-person.
