Getting the Most out of Wearable Technology in Clinical Research

The pharmaceutical industry continues to face a deeply entrenched
set of challenges as companies develop new medical products –
including declining clinical trial patient enrolment and retention
rates. Fortunately, there are a growing number of innovative
technologies with the potential to address this problem. By capturing
continuous data from patients via mobile wearable technology,
