CRF Health, the leading global provider of patient-centered eSource technology and service solutions for the life sciences industry announced that its TrialMax Touch® solution has been selected by a top ten pharmaceutical company for a landmark global oncology trial.
The three year study marks CRF Health’s involvement in over 115 oncology studies which have realized the benefits of electronically collected eCOA data, and aims to better understand patients’ quality of life post-treatment. The trial will involve more than 1,000 patients across 200 sites in 20 countries.
CRF Health will be providing an adapted version of TrialMax Touch, an easy-to-use smartphone solution, to all patients in the study. The solution was selected by the sponsor for the benefits it brings, such as streamlining data collection by instantly capturing data rather than waiting for patients to visit the sites, and a high compliance rate which is achieved through the solutions’ notification reminders, intuitive interface, and mobility. TrialMax Touch makes it simpler and quicker for the patients, and ultimately brings an increased insight into Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs).
“Historically, capturing quality data in the post progression stage can be a major challenge for sponsors, and burdensome for subjects. CRF Health was deemed to be the best equipped to help ease this burden and maximize the results of the trial for a number of reasons, including their ability to make paper backups obsolete,” commented John Blakeley, Chief Business Officer at CRF Health.
“Many factors such as disease progression or adverse reactions can create difficulty for subjects to make it to their scheduled site visits. This creates a problem for sponsors that would typically require changes to the PRO assessment schedules” further comments Blakeley. “We’re delighted that our TrialMax Touch solution has helped overcome this challenge by streamlining the data collection process to the point where it eliminates the need for patients to make on-site visits simply to capture data.”
