Crucial Data Solutions, Inc. (CDS) presented at the Society for Clinical Data Management (SCDM) 2016 Annual Conference in San Diego. CDS garnered second place for the Technology Innovation Award in 2016.
Founder Paul Grady and Director of Product Management Cody Wilke presented the developments with TrialKit. The presentation was called “Improved Patientricity Through Mobile and Wearable Devices.”
TrialKit is a cloud-based eClinical software solution. TrialKit’s mobile developments won the Technology Innovation Award in 2015. TrialKit’s development enables companies to use wearable technology without building a platform from the ground up or writing software.
Programmable wearable technology has helped clinical trials obtain never-before-seen patient participation rates. Clinical trial managers can send a push notification to patients and measure progress. Different wearable type tests include standardized heart rate, timed step, and physical therapy tests.
This new technology lowers the overall cost of clinical trials. Grady explains, “It is time to embrace and adopt new technologies to reduce healthcare costs.” Clinical trial managers can track a patient’s recovery without expensive and time-consuming appointments. TrialKit’s programmable wearable technology is currently available for Apple Watch and iPhone. TrialKit is in development for other wearable devices.
