Solutions for Complex Trials: How ePRO Can Improve Gastrointestinal Trial Success

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials,
  • Wednesday, June 12, 2019

With the cascade of new technologies and precision treatments hitting the market today, gastrointestinal (GI) clinical trials present a particularly unique set of challenges for patients, study sites and study sponsors. Now, researchers are looking for a way to manage the burdens that come with innovation.

Using onsite, electronic patient reported outcome (ePRO) technology, for example, is one way to help GI study team personnel eliminate the need for data transcription while simplifying complex protocol workflows and improving data monitoring results. When this approach is used in conjunction with an agile distribution model, it can be deployed faster and will benefit all groups equally. A tech transferable ePRO solution not only enables nimble, efficient clinical data management, but it also provides the site team with the reporting they need in real time.

Sponsors see early benefits when leveraging an ePRO solution as well: Prototyping can begin on day one using the configurable technology and libraries of stored information. GI questionnaires, for example, can be licensed and quickly deployed for use in any study. Rather than wasting time and money prior to beginning a study defining each outcome that needs to be achieved, agile methodology allows users to focus on the patient to create a low burden, functional solution. 

Finally, patients appreciate the ease-of-use that at-home ePRO devices afford over more cumbersome paper-based options, especially considering the demanding reporting requirements of GI trials. 

In this webinar, the featured speaker will discuss how ePRO solutions built specifically for gastrointestinal clinical trials can provide a better avenue for compliance and engagement by:

  • Easing patient and site burden
  • Shortening development timelines
  • Simplifying library build time
