Mobile systems for clinical studies

Exco InTouch : 15 June, 2015  (Company News)
Forthcoming event to see how Exco InTouch is meeting the needs for mobile electronic patient reported outcomes in clinicial studies
Mobile systems for clinical studies


Exco InTouch is joining DIA 2015 to address key challenges facing modern day clinical trials and showcase the solutions available to achieve the scale of efficiencies demanded by the pharmaceuticals industry. Advancing the use of patient engagement and mobile ePRO (electronic Patient Reported Outcomes) solutions are critical to achieving this goal.



DIA 2015 will focus on the healthcare industry’s shift towards a more patient-centric phase in which keeping patients fully engaged throughout their participation in clinical studies is critical to efficient and accurate PRO data capture. Furthermore, maximizing the use of mobile and digital tools, beyond their application in supporting patients in clinical trials and into the sphere of disease management in people’s everyday lives, is seen as a trend that has major scope for significant expansion.



eCOA (electronic Clinical Outcome Assessments) solutions are also set to take centre stage. With mobile and digital technologies now a widely-used and a familiar factor in everyday lives, their ready availability makes them a perfect asset for use throughout the healthcare continuum, both in clinical research and healthcare industries to address today’s complex health challenges.



Exco InTouch is continuing to work in the ePRO mobile and digital technology market. The company recently released its co-authored White Paper that focuses on the benefits and key considerations behind implementing a mobile strategy for patient data capture in clinical research.  Moreover, it analyzes how the use of mobile eCOA solutions overcomes practical challenges of capturing PRO measures through better quality, reliability, integrity and traceability of the collected data.    



Tim Davis, CEO and Founder of Exco InTouch commented: “Exco is looking forward to showcasing our strengths as the industry leaders in implementing mobile strategies for patient data capture in clinical research. The event provides us with a highly useful platform to share our insights into how best to meet the current, critical clinical trials challenges, whilst further strengthening our leadership position in the application of mobile in eCOA and patient engagement solutions.”



Chris Watson, Product Manager, who will present with the ePRO Consortium, commented: “The pharma industry is looking for more efficient means to capture patient data and ensure its reliability quality, traceability and integrity. The use of mobile technology in clinical research is on the rise and has the potential to address the challenges affecting paper and traditional ePRO methods.”



He added: “We are pleased to be playing our role in the strong focus at DIA 2015 on the changing role of patients. Indeed, this has important implications for advanced mobile and digital technology. Modules that provide help in managing health are set to become important mainstays in the very near future. and can be combined with workflows, rules and content to build individual and highly innovative patient engagement solutions in either clinical research or the real world with learnings being fed back into future development efforts.”  



Exco InTouch we will be demonstrating its services on stand number 2212.
