What's Next in eCOA? Psychometric Validation and BYOD

Speaker for this Event:
  • Paul O’Donohoe, Director of Health Outcomes, CRF Health
  • Despite some perceived challenges, electronic data capture has been widely accepted as being superior to paper, and has been adopted by a number of companies as the default choice for clinical studies. However, even as the industry begins to discover the opportunities offered by electronic Clinical Outcome Assessments (eCOA), a new and potentially paradigm-shifting model is already being touted as the Next Big Thing.

    Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) offers a number of advantages over traditional eCOA studies, but there are also several significant challenges that must be overcome before it can become a feasible option. This webinar will explore the current state of eCOA and the future offered by BYOD, while highlighting some of the issues that need to be addressed to move the industry forward.


    This webinar benefits clinical research professionals across data management, health outcomes, clinical outsourcing, clinical operations, eClinical, and executives involved with capturing Clinical Outcome assessments or Patient Reported Outcomes in clinical studies.
