Clinical Trials, Life Sciences,
  • Thursday, October 10, 2019 | 11am EDT (NA) / 4pm BST (UK) / 5pm CEST (EU-Central)
  • 60 min

Bring-your-own device (BYOD) remains a hot industry topic, following expanding electronic clinical outcome assessment (eCOA) adoption and the recent spate of patient-focused drug development initiatives. Both drug sponsors and the research community seek to make their work more meaningful or convenient for patients: the former through clinical endpoint selection, the latter through novel trial participation strategies.

BYOD offers significant convenience to patients but uncertainty and concern about logistics, technical performance, end-user support and regulatory acceptance still guides industry decision-making. Join this free webinar to hear the featured speakers discuss the latest research on BYOD equivalence and acceptance, as well as practical advice for BYOD implementation when patient-reported outcomes (PRO) are part of a clinical trial. This webinar also includes case study learnings and future scenario discussion.
