Marken’s new online tool enables patients to track home deliveries of clinical trial materials, which the company said will improve the direct to patient experience.

The new application – Marken Viseo – enables patients to track home deliveries of clinical trial materials and the pickup of biological specimens via a mobile device or computer, according to the supply chain organization​.

In a highly evolving technology-based world, patients expect the same type of tracking and end-to-end visibility as they experience in other areas of their lives​,” said Christine Noble, director, global marketing at Marken.

Marken Viseo is designed to help patients lead as normal a life as possible while participating in a clinical trial. Scheduled and tracked deliveries of clinical drug products and pickups of biological specimens helps to streamline their own daily lives while enrolled in the trial​,” she told

Patients are able to view the shipment’s progress in real time and are also provided a picture of the driver in order to know who to expect. They are also able to rate the experience on-screen immediately following the driver’s arrival or departure.

Real-time driver traceability can translate into improved patient expectations and confidence with their direct to patient or direct from patient experience​,” said Noble. “The instant feedback rating option is important to ensure a good patient-driver relationship and it will allow Marken team members to take action immediately on any issue or potential areas for improvement​.”

Driver activity is also viewable to the Marken team overseeing the trial through the company’s cloud-based booking and tracking system, Maestro. “For clients, more deliveries and appointments can be successfully achieved on the first attempt which is an obvious benefit for cost and time efficiency​,” said Noble. Though clients have no access to Marken Viseo in order to ensure patient confidentiality, she explained.
