Pharma industry encouraged to adopt mobile solutions for clinical trials efficiency
5 June 2014
Exco InTouch, a provider of patient engagement and data capture solutions for clinical research and healthcare providers, is championing the industry to adopt mobile electronic patient reported outcomes (ePRO) and other electronic clinical outcomes assessments (eCOA) measures to ensure greater clinical trial success.
Currently, over 80% of clinical trials experience delays and the company says mobile ePRO systems could help mitigate these risks by increasing trial efficiency and patient adherence.
Responding to this, the company will deliver insights into the application of mobile solutions across the clinical research industry, at this year’s 50th annual DIA meeting, taking place 15th-19th June in San Diego. The company will host on-site demonstrations and presentations on the value that mobile technology can offer to clinical trials. It will be exhibiting (booth 2116), and will also demonstrate its approach to BYOD (bring your own device) and, more broadly to data capture and patient engagement services across clinical research programs.
Tim Davis, CEO and co-founder of Exco InTouch commented, “Our presence at the DIA annual meeting will enable us to showcase our strengths as the industry leaders of mobile technology applications within clinical trials and the ease in which our services successfully captures ePRO. We are very much aware of the importance of making the clinical trial process simple for patients, and our technology, which enables a BYOD approach where appropriate, helps further increase patient engagement.”
