Benefits and ROI of eCOA Data Collection in Clinical Trials, Live Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 22, 2014) - In this webinar, the presenters will examine three key benefits of electronic clinical outcome assessments: reduced data variance, increased patient compliance and reduced site monitoring costs. Join the live broadcast on Thursday, October 30, 2014 at 11am EDT (NA) / 3pm GMT (UK) / 4pm CET (EU-Central).

Patient-reported outcome (PRO) and electronic PRO (ePRO) measures are standard tools for directly eliciting the patient experience for clinical outcome assessments (COA). Ever since regulators approved quality of life (QoL) data sufficient to prove efficacy, clinical trials have been leveraging COAs and electronic COAs (eCOA) for submissions.

Join presenter Elisabeth Kurkimilis, Senior Manager of Clinical Operations at Celgene Corporation, and Valdo Arnera, General Manager Europe at PHT Corporation, to hear lessons learned and experience gained from real-world trials collecting eCOA data.

Industry trends, research and best practices in eCOA will be discussed, including:

  • Regulatory mandates & recommendations;
  • Patient eData adoption and trends;
  • eCOA case studies of increased compliance & data quality;
  • Comparisons of monitoring costs for eCOA vs. paper; and
  • A sponsor's experience with eCOA adoption & ROI.
