Cranford, NJ (PRWEB) February 25, 2014
WriteResult, a leading provider of clinical data management solutions, announced today that it is participating in the first ever Patient Engagement App Challenge – a contest sponsored by Lilly, UBC, Enlight Biosciences and Partnerships in Clinical Trials to stimulate development of technology-driven solutions focused on engaging patients in the clinical trial process. WriteResult is showcasing its latest and highly anticipated ePRO application, myPROpad™.
"The move toward a patient-centered strategy in pharmaceutical development is finally getting the attention it deserves," states Karen Briegs, VP of Sales and Marketing when asked why myPROpad™ was entered, "and companies that embrace this philosophy are seeing success. In fact, almost 25 percent of the treatment-benefit claims granted by the FDA between 2006 and 2010 were based on PROMs and this number will continue to grow." WriteResult President Peter Oudheusden adds, "Collecting PRO data is the ultimate in patient engagement as the entire focus of this effort is tuned-in to hearing directly from the patient how they are feeling. We felt it was important to honor that data and to take that very personal interaction one step further by providing the patient with a tool that makes data collection easy and fun, and that gives value in return."
myPROpad™ uses the exceptional capabilities of an iPad to deliver questionnaires, surveys and other assessments to a patient through a large, crisp, intuitive touchscreen interface. The most recent release of myPROpad™ includes new functionality to present interactive educational material to a patient, and to capture appreciation credits for completed assessments that can be used to stimulate friendly competition or be tied to e-commerce sites.
myPROpad™ has much to offer the patient, but was also created to simplify PRO data collection for sites and sponsors. One iPad can support any number of patients and trials, and data transfers are completely built into the site workflow making it easy to use no matter where the coordinator has to travel to see patients. Sponsors benefit from the ease of study startup because myPROpad™ transforms already approved and validated paper assessments into electronic forms that retain the same layout and formatting as the original – so there is no ePRO screen development or risk of non-equivalency like other products available today.
"WriteResult has made study participation interesting and motivating, which ultimately leads to engaged patients who are compliant with study procedures and who provide data that sponsors can rely on to drive advancements in medicine and their business," says Ms. Briegs. "We are committed to helping make ePRO accessible and easy for sponsors, sites and for our patients and we believe myPROpad™ is the way to do it!"
