'Our mobile, integrated ECG / eCOA tablet solution provides a single point of collection to optimize digital data quality and reduce burden for both our clinical sites and sponsors,' said Amy Furlong, ERT.
PHILADELPHIA (PRWEB) June 04, 2015
ERT, a leading global provider of high-quality patient safety and efficacy endpoint data collection, cloud analytics and workflow solutions, today announced the availability of a new solution to wirelessly integrate ECG data collection with an electronic Clinical Outcome Assessments (eCOA) tablet – reducing site burden while improving data quality in clinical research. With the wireless ECG / eCOA tablet solution, a small, lightweight, wireless ECG device is unified with a tablet, which streamlines data collection, eases burden on investigative site staff and improves data quality with real-time data capture. Leveraging the integrated solution, clinical researchers collect vital, objective cardiac safety endpoint data along with patient and clinician reported outcome data, resulting in a more comprehensive view into patient health and well-being.
ERT’s wireless ECG / eCOA tablet solution is shipped to investigative sites preconfigured for data collection and ready for immediate use. During site visits, patient ECG and eCOA data are collected and automatically transmitted to the ERT Insights Cloud™, a private clinical research system accessible to qualified study personnel in real-time online. This robust, secure and validated clinical research workflow simplifies electronic data collection, data management and information exchange, dramatically reducing both site workload and the volume of queries generated.
“Cardiac safety continues to be the primary reason for drug withdrawals,” explained Amy Furlong, Executive Vice President, Cardiac Safety and eClinical Insights Solutions, ERT. “Our mobile, integrated ECG / eCOA tablet solution provides a single point of collection to optimize digital data quality and reduce burden for both clinical sites and sponsors.”
ERT continuously innovates to optimize the clinical research process in order to bring drug therapies to market faster and at a reduced cost. The global company is committed to expanding its current offering of integrated medical devices and wearables such as spirometers, glucose meters, blood pressure monitors, activity patches/meters and other devices to collect endpoints of import. ERT is bringing data collection to the patient by integrating individual Internet of Things (IoT) with electronic clinical outcome assessments, thereby increasing patient data values. By reimagining data management to deliver critical missing insights on clinical research for biopharmaceutical companies and CROs of every size at every stage in the drug development process, ERT innovates better health every day.
More information on the wireless ECG / eCOA integration and the Insights Cloud will be reviewed during a complimentary webinar on June 11, 2015.
