Different Method, Same Goal: Improving Clinical Trial Outcomes through Interoperability

By August 30, 2016 Blog No Comments

Among the various digital health technologies available on the market today, many are being used to streamline clinical trial processes.  In fact, in-home clinical devices are increasingly being used to empower contract research organizations (CROs) and pharmaceutical companies and to monitor participants remotely.  “As partially or fully remote clinical trials gain market momentum, these particularly impactful devices enable the remotely collected participant data to be integrated into a clinical trial system, patient community application or engagement platform” explains Marc Sebes, VP of Product Management and author of Improving Clinical Trial Outcomes and Efficiency with Connected, In-Home Clinical Devices.


Serbes also offers more perspective on the three (3) factors that led to increased usage of these devices in clinical trials. “First, the escalating competition caused by new entrants providing in-home clinical devices has led to better usability and accuracy from all vendors,” he details. “Second, as evidenced by the specialized digital health displays in retail stores like Target, consumer demand and adoption of in-home monitors is growing. Third, as data from these devices has become more accessible for clinicians, the value of utilizing these devices in trials has increased.”

The result is streamlined participant data collected directly at the source, that is more accurate and accessible by researchers and clinicians in real-time at a reduced collection cost.  This process of increased interoperability is similar to the benefits described in Adaptive Clinical System’s eClinical Bus® Solution.

The Adaptive eClinical Bus® is validated data integration technology that has been adopted by many clinical trial companies because it offers automatic data checks, validation rules, and optional data-coding features that save time and significantly reduce data entry errors resulting from paper CRF’s.

The software also helps maintain regulatory compliance and close oversight.  All data is housed in the strictest compliance with all privacy and security provisions of HIPAA, GxP, and 21 CFR Part-11.  Furthermore, detailed audit logs and reports empower DM and QA staff to maintain rigorous oversight of all data at any time.
