3 December 2013, Nottingham: Exco InTouch, the leading provider of patient engagement and data capture solutions for clinical research and healthcare providers, is taking part in an mHealth Solutions session regarding patient-centric clinical trials at the annual mHealth Summit on Tuesday, 10 December 2013.

The mHealth Summit, five years in the making, is now established as the largest mobile health event in the world, and will be held 8-11 December 2013 in Washington DC, USA. The Exco InTouch session will examine the ways mobile and mobile-enabled technology are changing clinical research across all trial phases and driving the adoption of a patient-centric and outcomes-based model for health care.

Delegates are set to discover how mobile health solutions – from apps and sensors through to health management platforms – are reducing trial costs, improving patient recruitment and retention, and facilitating real-time data capture for analysis.

Industry leaders including Tim Davis, CEO and Co-Founder of Exco InTouch, together with Craig Lipset, Clinical Innovation, Pfizer and Matt Hendricks, Principal, Pharmica Consulting, will drive the session. They will present real case studies and discuss opportunities for the utilization of mobile technology in support of adaptive trials to improve trial efficiency while maintaining quality and compliance – from patient-reported outcomes through to remote monitoring of therapeutic use, response and adherence. Tim Davis will highlight three case studies including triggering responses in vaccine safety surveillance, capturing events in cardiovascular outcomes and advancing community health models.

He commented: “mHealth programs are having a highly transformational impact in terms of making patient reported outcomes in clinical trials highly efficient with significant improvements to both performance and clinical implementation.”
