All key stakeholders – clinical operations, monitors, site staff, and patients – access one integrated and consistent support platform. Depending on the user’s role in the study, the interface and the support provided adjusts to meet their specific needs.

Apart from the simplification and enhanced coordination that stems from this integrated approach, it also engenders a greater “sense of team” across these key groups.

Not enough time in your day? Longboat provides you
with everything you need to get through a packed schedule.

Adaptive & Engaging Study-Specific Training

Give your staff the knowledge and resources they need to conduct the trial with our 21 CFR Part 11 compliant, certified, tracked, and localized essential protocol training, GCP training, safety, etc. Our expert team will take your protocol and bring it to life in video format so that everyone working on your study is trained consistently regardless of their location. Make sure your site staff are trained and ready to see patients for your study and give your monitoring team a ready-made clinical trial training solution so they can focus their on-site time on other activities.

Do the Right Thing at the Right Time

Once the patients begin study visits, guide your site staff to conduct the trial compliantly using virtual patient calendars and reminders, visit-by-visit walkthroughs, and controlled document repositories. Leverage Longboat’s smartphone and tablet compatible platform to make sure your site has the knowledge and resources at their fingertips to do the right thing at the right time. Provide sites with ready-made support and guidance so that they can focus on the patient during the visit.


24/7 Access to Information

Update site staff and clinical research associates in real-time while they are on the move via email and SMS. With our one-click “Read and Understood” and “Electronic Signature” functionalities, you can be sure that essential study communications, documents, and alerts are being received loud and clear.

Fully Informed Patients

Reduce the burden on sites by providing a ready-made individualized patient support platform. Better informed patients result in greater retention, reduced “loss to follow-up”, and smoother visit conduct. This also includes patient-facing videos designed to make the informed consent process easier for site staff.


Protocol Amendment Assurance

Using Longboat’s Protocol Amendment Dashboard, give your principal investigators the confidence that all members of their team are utilizing instructions and training aligned to the latest IRB-approved protocol version for their site.

Simplified Pre-Screening

Streamline the pre-screening process by quickly and easily generating electronic pre-screening logs using any device.

Connect with Prospective Patients

Using Longboat's Patient Connect tool, prospective patients can submit their contact details to their nearest study site. Site staff can review and follow-up on referrals via an actionable dashboard.


Patients are part of your team. Create subtle cues and context to
emphasize their co-dependence and promote good collaboration.

Practical, Timely Information

Make your patient feel part of the trial team with a regulatory compliant platform that enables you to provide practical support and helpful information throughout the study.

Upcoming Visit Reminders and Guidance

Guide your patients through each and every trial visit with email/SMS reminders, and clear patient-centric instructions on what to do before, during, and after the visit - all in their own language.

Study Progress

Keep the patient connected to and engaged with your study with regular updates e.g., study progress, milestones achieved, therapeutic area information, mid-point surveys, study newsletters.

Patient Recruitment Supports

Make prospective patients aware of studies with bespoke informational recruitment websites, with integrated referral management, ensuring every patient receives site follow-up.

Facilitating Informed Consent

Ensure patients on your study are fully prepared for the informed consent discussions via a series of bespoke, concise patient-facing videos that are accessible to both sites and patients on the Longboat Platform.

Patient Education

Educate randomized patients on the placebo effect, study procedures and the aims of your study through study-specific animated training videos.


Longboat ensures sites are informed and engaged, and helps
monitors to identify those that need extra support.

Real-Time Oversight of Study Engagement & Early Risk

Take control with real-time actionable oversight of overall and individual site performance. We give the study and monitoring teams the tools to identify and resolve engagement and compliance issues early and reinforce risk-based monitoring.

Distribute Tracked Communications and Documents with eSignature

Update site staff and monitors in real-time while they are on the move via email and SMS with full audit trail for your CTMS. With our one-click “Read and Understood” and “Electronic Signature” functionalities, you can be sure that essential study communications, documents, and alerts are being received loud and clear.

Pre-Screening & Feasibility Navigators

Get early oversight of patient recruitment and pre-screening at study, country, and site levels, with the ability to analyze and report on pre-screening activity and identify the main reasons for ineligibility. Quickly and accurately identify sites with an appropriate population of suitable patients, based on the study eligibility criteria.

Seamless Protocol Amendment Rollouts

Deploy amendments to sites as soon as they are approved locally with just a click of a button. Track confirmation of receipt and alignment to the amendment at the site level using mobile-enabled study alerts to make sure everyone is working to the correct version and avoid amendment-related findings and headaches.

Patient Engagement & Retention

Support patients throughout their trial journey with information about their progress on the study and their upcoming visits. Includes 24/7 mobile access to the latest study news and updates, the ability to opt-in for regular communications and visit reminders/guidance direct to their device via SMS or email, and communication of those crucial end-of-study results.

Investigator Meeting

Study-specific training allows flexibility around on-boarding of new staff both at the beginning and during the study. Traditional Investigator Meetings and Site Initiation Visits can now be a more engaged discussion on detailed elements of the protocol and methods of recruiting than the death by PowerPoint most site staff are used to.

Streamline Patient Recruitment

Connect patients interested in a study with enrolling sites and present their contact details to site staff via an actionable dashboard. Provide study teams with real-time metrics on all aspects of online recruitment activities across all regions and sites.
