AMC Health Releases Application for Remote Clinical Trials Visits
Software runs on tablets and smartphones to enable video visits and collection of digital health and patient-reported data in clinical trials
NEW YORK, May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — AMC Health, a leading provider of telehealth solutions, today announced the release of a software platform designed to remotely collect clinical trial data. The mobile solution that runs on Android tablets and smartphones supports video visits and the collection of digital health and self-reported data to supplement the data collected in office visits. This remote capability will contribute to a more comprehensive, longitudinal view of the safety and/or efficacy of drugs and devices.
“Remote site visits decrease the logistical burden clinical trials place on subjects and provide another degree of connectivity to the patient to complement the traditional, episodic site-based visits,” said Michael O’Brien, President of the Clinical Trials Division at AMC Health. “Additionally, collecting data directly from patients in their homes is an important step in enabling a more patient-centric clinical trial.”
Staff at the clinical site can remotely communicate with a subject through the application’s secure high-definition video link to observe the data collection under controlled conditions or the study participant can utilize the application independently to submit the data on a scheduled or ad-hoc basis. The site can monitor this information throughout the study to ensure protocol adherence and patient engagement, which aids in retention.
The software application also collects and transmits data from Bluetooth devices allowing the integration of data from the rapidly expanding digital health market.
