Born on eCOA: The New Standards of Deployment

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Pharmaceutical,
  • Thursday, November 30, 2017

Validated instruments that measure patient symptoms, mental state and disease progression as clinical endpoints have traditionally been developed on paper. Increasing adoption of electronic clinical outcome assessments (eCOA) has resulted in a surge of legacy instrument migrations from paper to electronic formats. The process is time-intensive, requires multiple stakeholders and is often complex.

 In this webinar, Catherine Aquadro, MD of MAPI and Donna Mongiello of YPrime will discuss the advantages of COA development directly on an electronic platform, completely eliminating the steps and cost involved with migration. Discussion includes:

  • The paper to electronic migration process
  • The good, bad and ugly – Case examples, from successful to migrations gone awry
  • eCOA technology solutions & associated benefits
