The electronic capture of self-reported, patient data plays a critical role as primary and secondary endpoints in clinical research. Sponsors now have access to first-hand, reliable data from which to measure clinical effectiveness, assess quality of life, recruit patients, collect and monitor safety information and ensure medical compliance. Not surprisingly, the number of studies leveraging ePRO technology has been steadily increasing over recent years and continues to benefit from high patient acceptance.
LifeSphere eCOA is an intuitive, electronic diary solution that allows patients to enter data directly on any mobile device – including iPhone, iPad, tablet PCs, Android devices and others. As a complete ePRO solution, LifeSphere eCOA provides sponsors higher quality data with accurate timestamps and real-time data access. LifeSphere eCOA facilitates data management activities such as capturing data directly from the patient, notifying staff when intervention is required and providing status updates when posted. Study monitors can focus on protocol compliance rather than time-consuming review of paper diaries. LifeSphere eCOA helps mitigate data risk by providing a central online system that is fully operable from most handheld mobile devices. Seamlessly unified with ArisGlobal’s EDC solution, LifeSphere EDC™, LifeSphere eCOA enables sponsors to deploy traditional EDC or ePRO studies using the same study builder as well as offering hybrid options.
With the ability to deploy on a wide variety of compatible devices including computers, smart phones and tablets/slates LifeSphere eCOA accommodates diverse patient needs and provides study teams with real-time access to first-hand study data, reporting and notifications for quick identification and response to patient conditions. Providing integrated alerts, LifeSphere eCOA also notifies patients automatically when intervention is required, virtually eliminating potential compliance problems.
