Mobile – The Future of Patient-reported Outcomes

A review of over 10,000 clinical study protocols by Kenneth Getz (2008) found strong evidence of increasing study complexity (significantly greater numbers of unique procedures, as well as increased procedural frequency, longer trial durations, more data collected in the case report form (CRF), and increased site ‘work burden’). Chris Watson at Exco InTouch explains how this emerging new trend is likely due to the desire to capture direct evidence from patients, in conjunction with the growing specialism and demand for Phase IIIb & IV clinical studies. He describes how it is in the arena of complex clinical studies that mobile eCOA comes into its own right.
