Mobile Data Collection for Clinical Trials
A medical device manufacturer in the respiratory care market was planning a clinical trial for a new therapy regimen related to use of their medical device. This client had an urgent need for a mobile app to gather data from a patient-worn healthband, and also to host a daily patient survey related to the use of their respiratory device and health status. In parallel, Syncro Medical did technical prototyping to assess the feasibility of downloading data from a wearable healthband to be merged with the survey information.
Given the success of the prototype, Syncro Medical completed the application in time for the clinical trial. A patient’s healthband data is transmitted via Bluetooth to his/her Android tablet. This data, together with accompanying questionnaire responses is then periodically sent to the Cloud where it is merged with data from other patients in the trial and then processed to support clinical trial analysis.
