Mayo Clinic's Cures at Home program brings clinical trials to your door
Mayo Clinic's Cures at Home program allows people to participate in clinical trials remotely. This participant-first program makes clinical trial participation easier and more accessible by significantly reducing the need for travel.
Remote Participation in Clinical Trials
Mayo Clinic is advancing the administration of clinical trials by removing physical boundaries and limitations to create a new participant-first model: Cures at Home.
The Cures at Home program brings clinical trial teams to participants, providing services in the comfort of the participants' homes. This means that people who are unable to travel are now able to find potential medical benefits — and help advance medical knowledge for everyone — by enrolling in research studies at Mayo Clinic. The program goal is to make participating in research more convenient and provide clinical trial access to people everywhere.
Cures at Home
Cures at Home offers a platform for performing remote, direct-to-patient clinical trials. It is available to all Mayo Clinic investigators conducting clinical studies.
By bringing Mayo Clinic's clinical trial teams to participants, Mayo hopes to increase convenience and decrease the burden of travel for participation in clinical trials. Cures at Home will enable more people to enroll in studies and gain access to cutting-edge research.
Cures at Home focuses on Mayo Clinic-led trials for rare diseases and cancer, with a special emphasis on reaching underserved populations. The program also coordinates in-home services as needed by each trial.
Some of the services available in the pilot program include:
- At-home participation in clinical trials
- Virtual access to the study team
- Remote monitoring
- IV infusion services
- Medication management
- Pharmacy services
- Laboratory testing
- Mobile imaging and ultrasounds
- Scheduling options designed around participants' needs
Clinical trials are essential to advance treatments and medical knowledge. Just as important, they give patients hope and opportunities for better outcomes. Cures at Home will uncover possibilities patients and investigators can only imagine today, increase access to research for those who need it most, and accelerate Mayo Clinic's ability to develop cures for the next generation.
