Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of trials participant is enrolled into [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    Counting how many patients are enrolled into OTHER clinical trials using a telemedicine technique

Enrollment: 0
Study Start Date: November 2016
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2020

Detailed Description:
The UCSD Telemedicine system is a digital video camera system, which can transfer video and audio images from a clinic or emergency room to a remote place where a physician can review images in real time (as they happen). The system uses site independent software to access the camera system from multiple locations. This research study will determine if it is feasible to obtain informed consent for various types of research trials (hypothetical, non-invasive, invasive trails) via telemedicine. Inpatient assessments on participants to complete clinical research case report forms by telemedicine will also by performed.
