ABSTRACT
"Minority populations were three times more likely to experience complications from COVID-19 but were not equitably represented in clinical trials for the vaccine," says Greater Gift board member Harsha Rajasimha, PhD, CEO and Founder, Jeeva Informatics Solutions, Inc. "This challenge presents itself across varying disease states. According to a recent article in the Harvard Business Review "Most clinical trials are not representative of the general population or of those with a particular disease. [...]many may be missing required documentation to obtain an ITIN, such as a passport, which excludes potential trial participation entirely. Since payment received is considered reimbursement vs. compensation, there is no need for W-2 forms, which are often required by sponsors, sites, and CROs. * Relaxing of the regulation that governs principal investigator in-person oversight that greatly limits the locations where clinical trials can be conducted. * Pursuit of federal legislation that will allow reimbursement costs to clinical trial participants to be optional and non-taxable. * Introduce legislation that relaxes requirements that limit mobile clinical trial units from traveling to minority communities.
