Our digital health expertise, coupled with Medidata’s Patient Cloud and Clinical Cloud, can help create compelling mobile health tools that add tremendous value to the field of clinical trials,” said Shyam Deval, President, Boston Technology Corporation.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 17, 2016
Boston Technology Corporation (BTC), a Boston-based digital health technology services company has been chosen as one of the first Medidata AppConnect Program Partners. BTC creates innovative patient and provider experiences and IoT human interface mobile and web applications for provider organizations, research institutions, biotechs, medical device companies, and leading universities.
Medidata AppConnect, a software development kit (SDK) that is part of Medidata Patient Cloud®, provides the flexibility to gather and process a wide range of data from nearly any type of mobile application. AppConnect partners have the expertise to build HIPAA and FISMA-compliant mobile apps and remote patient research programs for clinical trials. These apps may collect subjective and objective data from patients that is then pulled into the regulatory-compliant and secure environment of the Medidata Clinical Cloud®.
Among one of the first companies to be certified as an AppConnect Partner, BTC was selected for its digital health experience as well as its work building highly usable and scalable consumer mobile applications.
“We are excited to collaborate with Medidata,” said Shyam Deval, President, Boston Technology Corporation. “Researchers are faced with many challenges today, including lower participation rates, selection biases and mounting costs. These are precisely the areas where we can help them leverage the power of mobility. Coupled with Medidata’s Patient Cloud and Clinical Cloud, we can create compelling mobile health tools that add tremendous value to the field of clinical trials,” he added.
“Medidata is building an ecosystem of skilled developers to help life sciences companies seamlessly bring mobile health tools into the highly structured realm of clinical development,” said Kara Dennis, Medidata’s Managing Director of mHealth. “We’re pleased that our inaugural AppConnect partners include leading digital health experts such as BTC, a company with a proven track record building secure, patient-centric mobile and web solutions for clinical research. Working together, we can provide our joint customers with the capabilities to increase the efficiency of R&D programs, improve the experience for patients and accelerate the development of new medical treatments.”
BTC recently built a Medidata AppConnect-enabled mobile app called ‘MediDate,’ which was used by participants during a simulation at the 2016 Medidata Symposium in Phoenix. The app was developed to demonstrate how mHealth tools can be used to measure motor skills such as hand dexterity, in a manner that meets the requirements of clinical studies.
At Medidata Symposium, B. McKinley Hackett III, BTC’s Vice President, Business Development participated on a panel session with other AppConnect partners to discuss trends and lessons learned in developing clinical research apps.
