Patient-Centric Technology for Better Trial Outcomes

Speakers for this Event:
  • Andy Lee, Deputy Head of Clinical Sciences and Operations, Sanofi
  • Glen De Vries, President, Medidata Solutions
  • Randy SpauldingFounder and President, Spaulding Clinical Research, LLC
  • How many of you are reading this on your smart phone or tablet? Mobile technology is an ever growing presence in our lives as witnessed by our addiction to our smart phones. This technology is now being heavily leveraged along with mHealth applications across all areas of pharmaceutical development. During this webinar, the presenters will explore how mHealth technology can be used to reduce overall clinical development cost, while increasing subject and investigator satisfaction, retention, and engagement.

    The goal of the webinar is to broaden the discussion and share ideas. The presenters believe that transformational collaboration is the key to driving better trial outcomes as well as patient outcomes. The use of Patient-Centric Technology highlights these types of collaborations and our speakers will be sharing their experience. The webinar discussion will help you:

    • Gain perspective from our speakers on Innovation and Collaboration – both disruptive and sustaining
    • Explore how real-time patient data from devices can be linked to the electronic clinical trial database (EDC systems) through a secure cloud infrastructure today
    • Learn more about an ongoing pilot study to determine if proactive patient engagement can be achieved with targeted interventions based on real-time information
    • Explore mHealth options available today that you can leverage for your next study
