Exco InTouch gives insights in mHealth solutions for clinical research
at mHealth Summit
12 December 2013
Exco InTouch, a provider of patient engagement and data capture
solutions, took part in a session on mHealth Solutions for
patient-centric clinical trials at the annual mHealth Summit in
Washington DC this week.
The Exco InTouch session examined the ways mobile and
mobile-enabled technology are changing clinical research across all
trial phases and driving the adoption of a patient-centric and
outcomes-based model for health care.
Delegates were informed how mobile health solutions — from apps
and sensors through to health management platforms — are reducing
trial costs, improving patient recruitment and retention, and
facilitating real-time data capture for analysis.
Industry leaders including Tim Davis, CEO and Co-Founder of Exco
InTouch, together with Craig Lipset, Clinical Innovation, Pfizer and
Matt Hendricks, Principal, Pharmica Consulting, drove the session.
They presented real case studies and discussed opportunities for the
utilization of mobile technology in support of adaptive trials to
improve trial efficiency while maintaining quality and compliance —
from patient-reported outcomes through to remote monitoring of
therapeutic use, response and adherence.
Tim Davis highlighted three case studies including triggering
responses in vaccine safety surveillance, capturing events in
cardiovascular outcomes and advancing community health models. He
commented: “mHealth programs are having a highly transformational
impact in terms of making patient reported outcomes in clinical
trials highly efficient with significant improvements to both
performance and clinical implementation.”
