Mobile technology used in Clinical Trial research to assess and react to adverse events in real time
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 11, 2012 - assisTek, a clinical trial eSource solution provider, today announced the use of their technology to collect patient-reported Adverse Events. The software company, headquartered in Scottsdale, AZ, has created a system where patients can report adverse events on their Android™-based eDiaries. The data is then automatically transmitted, using cellular technology, to the study team. The investigator is also alerted via email to enable a quick assessment of any potential serious adverse events. The solution has been hailed as a win-win by sponsors, patients, and investigators alike.
Evonne Roberts, Director of Business Development, noted, “The study team has the ability to review, update and classify the adverse event using our online web Portal. This provides them with the opportunity to determine severity and potential treatment associations immediately. Technology has granted study teams access to engage with patients in real time and avoid complications and missed events due to waiting for site visit appointments.” This feature is being used in Patient eDiaries in Phase III studies around the world.
